This may sound foolish but I set job hunting in the field of architecture/interior design aside because I was busy working in retail - - and mainly out of frustration.
However, recently, I found a contract interior design gig that got me "hopeful" again.
I am an architecture graduate with a BS degree from overseas - - my only "local" relevant experience will be this contract job. Otherwise, I've been busy working in the sad, abysmal world of retail.
I do have very strong experience in FF&E specification - - worked in big projects like the St. Regis in the past. My CAD skills are so-so as I focused mainly in specs.
What are my chances? And what can I do to make myself more marketable under these circumstances? Like everyone else I claim this is my "passion".
I'm really at a lost at this point but nonetheless hopeful..
** Obviously I don't have the funds to pursue an MS even if I want to and it seems foolish to spend so much on a degree that seems futile (LOL)
Hospitals, major hotels and resorts that are renovating may need someone to manage the project details. A client’s representative on a major job or a CM firm may be a place to look. Also consider Universities and Chain retail or food service establishments they have in-house design crews doing odd jobs such as interior refreshes and accessibility upgrades.
Also consider getting a CAD certificate at your local community college to help bolster the CAD skills.
Over and OUT
