About me
I’m Simon Hamilton, an interior designer and educator. I founded Design Career Consulting to help interior designers with their CVs, portfolios, and interviews and give detailed advice, professional knowledge, and industry guidance. We offer personal consultations for a wide variety of people with the same goal - to improve the quality, presentation, and content of their CV or portfolio, and learn all about interview techniques. If you are a student, graduate, an established interior designer who wants help progressing their career or you are new to the design sector, we can help you. For a chat to find out how we can help, please contact us via email or the website.
