IIDA Career Bootcamp™ Panel Town Hall: Designing For Now [SP1]

  • Date Held on Wednesday, June 13, 2018
  • Time 10:30 AM – Noon
  • Location Floor 6, Suite 622

Starting your career in interior design may sound daunting. But it doesn’t have to be.

Join IIDA for our first IIDA Career Bootcamp Town Hall where four IIDA Student of the Year recipients, including the 2018 Student of the Year, will share how they came into interior design and lessons learned since starting their design careers. For this town hall, we will begin by asking our panelists to share their stories and then we will open the conversation to the room. Attendees are encouraged to come prepared with questions to ask our speakers. Together, we will work to give students and recent graduates the tools to prepare for a successful design career for today – and beyond.
