I have a slight taste of bile in my mouth

The opener about put me off of my feed; 
"Young designers, fresh out of school, often have incredible potential to contribute to their new firm: with fresh skills and capabilities that may have passed by the company's older members, they are in an excellent position to make their mark..." 
Um, I'll let you in on something, Mr./Mrs. Designer, you know precisely shit about being an architect after getting that bought and paid-for sheepskin.

Forget those pretty drawings and fancy renderings and philosophizing endlessly from your days in, "school," and learn how to put a building together as an assemblage of details, from general to specific, first.

Second, you're going to take some lessons in how to apply the building codes to the design, and here's a news flash for you; I teach my firm principals how to do this on an almost daily basis, which means you probably no less-than-zero about the subject. You will learn by the numbers.

Third, you're going to REAL school after the building gets through the construction documents phase and moves into bidding and then CA. More like an ass-whoopin'.

IF you can survive for the next three years of that grind, you get to take the ARE.

You'll forget all about how important being a designer is after that.

Welcome to the jungle, punks.
