A lot of drafting.....
More than likely you'll start off preparing details for an associate in the firm. Eventually you may be able to shadow him or her at design meetings with engineers and clients. The important thing is to be patient. I myself am a civil engineer and have worked extensively with architects as we work on projects like hotels, or schools. Architectural firms tend to have a number of young people (right out of college) preparing the details and the specifications for the larger projects. Again, be patient, respect your associate and ask for their advice as your career matures.
