Interior Design Portfolio and Interview Survey

As interior design students prepare to graduate and enter the professional arena, advice from practicing professionals is an invaluable career resource. Sometimes, very talented students fail to obtain positions because they do not know how to present their skills effectively. Sharing your current hiring practices will help ensure that students are well prepared to transition from college to work.
