Ellenzweig to Host Architecture Job Shadow Day

This Friday December 8th, Ellenzweig is hosting a job shadow day for a group of high school students interested in careers in the design and construction fields. By attending various presentations by the Ellenzweig staff, touring the office to learn about different career paths, and participating in a creative design charrette, the students will experience what it is like to work at an architecture firm.

Last year, Ellenzweig held a similar event for students from the Margarita Muñiz Academy and English High School.
