When you create your interior design portfolio, the finished product should speak for itself. However, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't contemplate the explanation you'll give during the interview for your work. Before you even step foot into the door to your interview, be prepared with some dialogue. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
• Explain your thought process. Your interviewer wants to know how you arrived at the finished product.
• Walk your interviewer through the requirements of the project. An interior design firm wants to know about your problem solving skills.
• Don't forget to mention details such as fabric choices, lighting, and specific design concepts.
• Leave your interviewer with a good impression by speaking clearly and confidently. An interior design firm is also concerned with your people skills.
