I am currently a Designer/Office Manager for a Long Island based Architecture Firm and a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology. I am applying for a position in your Design Firm. I have some experience with the D&D Building & the New York Design Center as well as considerable experience with construction documents, FF&E/budgets, CAD, organizing design libraries, communication with vendors/contractors/clients/work rooms, site meetings, and the entire design concept, creation and presentation process.
As you will see from my attached resume, I have worked not only in the field of Interior Design, but as an Office Manager that handled Project Management and Scheduling. Having a strong understanding of the Interior Design field and Office Procedures has led me to become a stronger and well-rounded designer/assistant. The company I was previously employed with designs mostly residential, however I have worked on several commercial projects with my current employer. I have a strong passion for all areas and types of design, and no matter what type of project I am working on, I will always take it to the next level and make it the best it can possibly be. I am very compliant and have no problem taking direction when working with a team. I also have strong ideas and opinions and have no problem voicing them and taking the lead when necessary.
Throughout my years at my previous design firm, I continually improved my skills and was rewarded regularly with merit-based raises, bonuses, and position advancements. I love what I do and put my all into everything that I do. I have a passion for anything creative. Working for a small design firm and architecture firm on Long Island has limited my ability for advancement. All of my professional information can be found in my resume.
