Who We’re Looking For

NSPJ interns are a competitive group of designers, committed to learning alongside leading Kansas City architects.

Many of our interns choose NSPJ as a second internship, having already interned in an architecture firm setting, though this is not necessarily a requirement. Ideal candidates include those who:

  • Are willing to take initiative
  • Seek opportunities to grow
  • Are creative, independent thinkers
  • You’re not afraid to ask questions
  • Enjoy getting to know new people
  • Are looking for a warm, welcoming environment

What You'll Do

You won’t be taking coffee orders or filing paperwork here. Our premier internship provides you with real design experience as interns are an integral part of our team. We want to learn your perspective on design, just as we share our experience and insights based on years of expertise. You’ll get to experience much of what it’s like to work at a highly regarded architecture firm, including:

  • Participation in drafting of construction documents, redlines and modeling
  • Attending meetings with clients and team members
  • Visiting sites under construction and development with senior team members
  • Learning at professional development and in-studio events
  • Joining social events, community work and team-building activities

Benefit from Our Internship in Architecture

Whether you’re a Jayhawk, Wildcat, Cyclone or any other architecture program in the Midwest and beyond, you’ll get to experience our architecture firm’s fast-paced, engaging, creative environment. Get paid and potentially earn college credit while you gain crucial experience.

10 %

Many of our interns have gone on to work at NSPJ after graduation. In fact, 20 percent of our design staff started as interns, including one of our co-presidents.
