Phoenix College Interior Design program helps the community


chips amounts a little more than a
fetching coffee for the boss but in tonight’s jobs 911 report Bram Resnick
shows us an internship with a bigger payoff than just college credit and how
you can do something similar to build your resume I would imagine that this
room will become in great demand this room is at the ronald mcdonald house in
central phoenix it will soon house out of town families whose children are
getting medical treatment here in the valley it’s called apartment be but
these phoenix college students are hoping for an a on their internship they
exceeded our expectations and redesigning and outfitting the
two-bedroom apartment is a different kind of internship offered to the
interior design program at Phoenix College to take from the textbook to
real life the biggest problem was the very dirty very dingy carpet program
director ken roberts walks us through before photos we felt that the yellow
with a bit strong the class had twenty five hundred dollars from the community
group Valley leadership they turned that into nine thousand dollars by gathering
donations and sweat equity because then we can kind of see what our contractors
will go through many of these students are recur earring or building on their
current careers like artists Pat sharrock who created the whimsical
headboards well I have a degree in fine arts already from northern Arizona and I
wanted to add to it and do interior design work because a lot of my clients
ask advice on the interiors when I’m doing murals or I’m doing paintings for
them so it was a natural addition to my career but these students are getting
more than just practical experience they have the ability to make people’s lives
better just by practicing a craft that they love it just does a heart really
well and when they come back from whatever treatment or what they’re going
through that they can walk into this cheery room and that they can just relax
and they can feel that peace and perhaps help with the healing volunteering for
charitable organizations is also a great way to build experience for your resume
without the commitment or the cost of enrolling in school volunteering also
helps you build a network of people who can help with your job search for jobs
