Your interior design portfolio is one of the most important aspects of your job application process as an interior designer. Your interior design portfolio shows what you are capable of, what you have had experience doing, your creative thought process, and your organizational skills. To highlight your best interior design skills, streamline the projects you showcase in your portfolio, whether they are class projects or pieces from your interior design career. Here are a few important reminders.
• Only put your best work in your interior design portfolio.
• Research the type of work the firm you are interviewing with does and put in portfolio pieces accordingly.
• Do not put pieces in your portfolio of work you have done if you are not interested doing that type of work in your interior design career.
For instance, if you have no interest in residential design, make sure you do not create a portfolio full of residential design projects.
