What to Wear to the Interior Design Interiew

The first impression is crucial, especially in a highly visual industry like design. Use this guide as a basic tool for dressing the part during your interior design job interview. 


Make Friends and Connections

Job interviews don't have to be intimidating, especially when you have a friend who can connect you to a future employer or you can find something in common with your interviewer outside of work and design (your employer wants to make sure you've got personality to boot!). Our Career Bootcamp panelists from NeoCon 2015 share what they're looking for during the interview and what makes a lasting impression even after the interview is over.
