Patrick Ryan O'Connell Architect, LLC.

Interior Design Intern

May - August 2021 • Palm Beach, FL

What I liked

Patrick and Hung are the two architects at this firm and they are the most amazing people. They taught me all things autoCAD, how to work and interact with clients, listened to my design input, and so much more. The office manager, Megan, is such an inspiring person and also helped me grow as a professional.

What I wish was different

Advice

If given the opportunity to come work at this firm, absolutely embrace it! There is no other internship out there that will allow you to be as hands on as this one.

Architectural Intern

June - July 2021 • Palm Beach, FL

What I liked

Spending my summer as an intern at Patrick Ryan O'Connell Architect was such a fulfilling experience. I went into the job with no experience working in an architectural office and was able to learn numerous things and gain many skills. Being a small firm, PRO Architect gave me the opportunity to become very involved in hands-on work for their projects. I learned how to use AutoCAD software, gained experience working with clients and on job sites, and was involved in the design process for several projects.

What I wish was different

Though I was able to gain some experience working with clients and on job sites, I would have appreciated even more exposure to the process of each project and the involvement with not only clients, but other people involved in the projects such as engineers and builders. I would love to have learned a bit more about this aspect of the architecture field, and I feel that the potential is there to learn more with a small firm.

Advice

If you are at all interested in an opportunity to work for PRO Architect, do not hesitate! It was one of the best risks and opportunities I have ever taken. Not only will you enjoy the work but also the experience of being part of such a great team. There is so much to learn from the Architects, Patrick and Hung, so take advantage of any chance to ask questions and learn more.
