Top CV Tips and Guidelines

  • Fill your CV up with the appropriate terminologies used by the professionals in the field. Read through the “Interior Design” article to get some ideas.
  • Ensure that you list all the design skills that you have under the “Skills” section and you could also emphasise your passion for designing under the “Hobbies and Interests” section by stating that you spent your free time doing design work or related projects. This makes you come across as a dedicated individual passionate about your profession.
  • CV with No Experience? It is an essential requirement that you have some sort of design-related work experience to this job to a satisfactory standard. The first thing you need to consider is whether you can find a place where you can do some voluntary work experience. This will give you vital experience, improve your skills and potentially gain you a good reference. The second thing that you could consider is working on small-sized freelance projects and built your career up from there. Any experience in the field, no matter how small, will make you a stronger candidate for the job.
  • The ideal candidate for this job will be working in different settings on a variety of different projects. Mention on your CV all the environments you have worked in as an Interior Designer such as private homes, business offices, restaurants or shops.

Good Luck!
