Welcome to My First Architecture Job

Helping architecture students and graduates bridge the gap between study and practice.

About Me

Hi, I'm Sarah Lebner. 

This is me:


Introducing: The Career Momentum Course 

Over the past few years running My First Architecture Job, I've had the honour of interviewing more than 50 inspiring and skilled architects, consultants and allied professionals. I've also listened to, mentored, and brainstormed the challenges of hundreds of students and graduates of architecture.

I'm thrilled to have packaged up all the best lessons from these experiences into a single course. Plus you can access quarterly virtual group reflection and mentoring sessions.

It’s a self-paced, career game-changer for those in their first 5 years of architecture employment.

Is it for me?

If you're in the early years of your architecture career, then this is for you.

Small sections of the course have Australia-specific information, but 90% of the course is relevant to students and graduates of architecture around the world.

Even if you don't quite fit the mould, you're welcome. We've welcomed Interior Designers, TAFE Building Designers, and even registered architects who were seeking support on the topics listed.


IMPORTANT Note: Please set up your payments in a web browser, or android app, instead of an iOS Apple Mighty Networks app.  Apple IOS takes a whopping 30% cut so membership and course fees are 30% higher if you purchase through your iPhone app!

What members say

This platform has been incredible. I've met people, I've listened to incredibly talented people talk about their journey and got to know some mentors through the platform. Tara Cull and Shaneen, just to name two. Tara has been working with me on developing better communication and interview skills. Through Shaneen again, I've met a couple more architects working in Alice Springs and in Broome, who do amazing work in collaboration with indigenous communities. So all in all, while this has been the suckiest year ever, I'm thankful for this massive opportunity to meet people and get into a network. I don't know if you remember, in one of my earliest chats with you, I mentioned how I missed out on networking when I was at University, because of work and the pressures of being an international student."


"One of the main benefits has been meeting people! Especially making connections with people at the same stage in the industry as you, I’ve learnt ‘networking on the same level’ rather than ‘networking up’ for lack of better words is definitely more important. While there’s always lots to learn from more experienced members, learning with those who are going through the same things as you are feeling very rewarding."

- Ashley

"Since joining the project family, I have spent the past year learning that there is an amazing community of people at all on a similar pathway to myself, and making connections with members has definitely been a highlight. I have loved the guest sessions and members round table discussions, they are invaluable resources, I always find myself learning something new. 10 out of 10 stars."
