Sample Interior Designer Resume
Resumes for interior designers offer a great deal of flexibility, as the field itself covers
so many areas. Interior designers can create retail store layouts, set designs, restaurant
layouts, staged apartments and every place in-between, so be sure not to narrow down your
entry-level resume to discount possible opportunities.
It’s also important to showcase your experience in a clear, concise manner. Be sure to use
bullet points to highlight your past experiences at previous jobs or internships and
remember that bolding or italicizing texts can make all the difference. When used in
moderation, these small changes can make a resume 100x easier to read and much more visually
pleasing to a potential employer.
Tips for Success:
Let the text do the talking – while it’s important to showcase your
creativity in your resume, don’t let it take control. As a designer, you can choose to
add a bit of flair to your resume, but be sure that any designs you add don’t take away
or distract the reader from the content. The content of your resume will get you an
interview – not the designs in the corner.
Pimp your skills – As a recent graduate, employers aren’t going to
expect you to have years of experience, but they will expect you to have the drive to
master your craft. Be sure to use your skills section to showcase your
communication/people skills and work ethic, as well as your proficiency in design.
