What makes a good design CV?

  • Simon Hamilton

Looking to become a junior interior designer? Or perhaps you’re just starting out as an interior design intern? In today’s competitive environment, a good interior design CV is extremely important, alongside your interior design portfolio of course. It’s important that you stand out from the crowd, so don’t be tempted by templates that don’t relate to the creative world, but do make note of the basics to ensure you include what the employer needs to know, and to present yourself in the best possible light. WANT TO KNOW WHERE TO START? Here’s how you can create a successful interior design CV and cover letter. Start with the basics. Get started on your interior design CV with the obvious; your personal details should be clear and easy to find. Employers will need your name, email address, telephone number and at the very least, your city and postcode. If your professional social media channels or website might also be relevant, include them so that your potential employer can see your portfolio of interior design work. Triple check that all of the details are current and correct and, if relevant, state your current right to work in the relevant country, visa status or personal situation.
