Alyssa Meyer, FVTC Interior Design Graduate


– Hi I’m Alyssa Meyere,
I’m a 2013 graduate of Fox Valley Tech’s kitchen and bath program and I work at Cabinet Creations. Sales and design, it’s
either walk in customers or through builders. I do estimates and then
if I get the job customers come in to figure out what
kind of cabinetry they want in their house, go through
every single room with the design of it. Figure out exactly what
they want in the rooms. Give them suggestions of other stuff. Go through colors, coordination
with like the tiles, all the cabinetry. If the customer comes in
with a floor plan from like a builder and usually it’s
normally just general what the cabinets are drawn and if
they don’t exactly like it you can completely like change walls around, come up with a completely new
design and I’ve had to do that a couple times and I love doing that. Through the internship
program at Fox Valley Tech I contacted Cabinet Creations
and they actually said yes and then they hired me on. So it worked out good. I would recommend it. The teachers are very hands
on, the program was very hands on, the instructors
were really helpful. I do think it helped out big
time for in the industry just like the, even the general vocabulary, what people are talking
about when they come in, you know what they’re
talking about already. So I mean there’s a lot to
learn when you get out there but it helped out a lot as a starter. (upbeat music)
