When I look for jobs in architecture I see computer industry jobs, nothing for an actual architect

I spend the time to fill out the forms and it is clear I am an architect that designs building, you know, a real architect. When I look at the job listings for “architect” I see nothing but IT and computer industry jobs. This is a bug I think needs fixing. It also makes me wonder if any of the data and statistics provided are accurate or does pay-scale think I am an “insurance plan architect”, another of the title I see under “architect”? Give us our title back!

        Thomas:
        The term "architect" has been more and more overloaded over the last few years, and this is definitely an issue that we're aware of.

        We are actively working on a project that will help us show better job listings for job titles like this.

        Can you tell me which page you were looking at?

        Thanks for the feedback.
