A piece of advice for a graduating interior design student


My piece of advice to graduating students is to think of yourself in Terms of…In other terms than your portfolio. People will hire me for who I am or how I talk, what I have to say. For the approach to design that I have or my understanding of the industry, for my willingness to help. People hire people, not portfolios. So your portfolio is Sort of a snapshot of your capabilities as a designer in the given time. That portfolio will evolve in five or ten years when you’re looking for another opportunity. It will look entirely different but you as a person, have now created a personal brand and created some impressions on people and they will hire you for you, not for the work that you are showing. It’s really about how you present that work. Like Aga said, I mean… It’s the culmination of your schooling. It represents you have the basic skill set needed for an entry-level position. But it’s all in the presentation of that. Exactly, what she said. How you communicate how you show your personality. Walking them through the story of your education and how that can bring value to the particular environment you’re trying to work in.
