The IIDA Student Mentoring Program gets students out of the classroom and into the real world of design by pairing students with an interior design professional, one-on-one, for an entire day.
IIDA Student Members who would like to gain career insight and advice from professionals in the design community.
IIDA pairs up to two student members with a mentor. Students will shadow mentors for one day at their mentor’s office. Pairings are random and based on the availability and proximity of mentors and students.
Registration for students opens Monday, Nov. 14, 2016, and closes Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017.
All student participants are encouraged to write a 2-3 page summary about their experience and submit it to the Wilsonart Essay Competition for a chance to win $1000.
