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 this year's Student of the Year, will share how they came to interior design and lessons learned since starting their design careers. We will begin by asking panelists Allison Brown, Student IIDA; Lindzey Duval, Student IIDA; Tara Headley, Associate IIDA; and Amy Hufford, Associate IIDA, to share their stories. We’ll then open the conversation to the room and encourage attendees to questions. Together, we’ll give students and recent graduates the tools for a successful design career. Attend the event by registering to NeoCon. Read highlights from last year’s panel.
