Interior Designer Resume Example

Here's A Critique of An Interior Designer Resume:

Dear Sara:

What a delight it was to work on your resume. The pictures you provided were lovely, especially those of the set designs for The Templetons.

As you can see, I chose the #5 photo you provided, then scanned it for use as a background in your resume. At a glance, a hiring manager can now see your obvious skills.

Interior Designer Resume Critique:

Because your work tends to be more formal and traditional (as opposed to stark or trendy), I chose template #5 to “float” over the scanned image. This design is traditional, while emphasizing your professional accomplishments, which speak for themselves.

In the body of the resume, I began with your qualifications, bulleting them for ease of reading. Here, I described you as award-winning and multilingual, then went on to write of your designs for NBC, TriStar, and PBS. Next, I listed certain of your high-profile clientele to show the status of your work, then ended this brief section with your linguistic capabilities and your international licensing.

For the section that follows, I emphasized your accomplishments. In today’s world, hiring managers are especially busy and many only skim a resume. With this format, that includes a subheading listing your “Outstanding Professional Accomplishments,” a hiring manager can easily read only that section and be truly impressed.

Interior Designer Resume Critique:

Next, I listed your employment history, detailing your most important tasks. I began each of the bulleted sentences with the strongest action verb possible, while also revising text for clarity, conciseness, and maximum impact.

For example: In your email to ResumeEdge you stated: “Started design firm at 23. Was youngest designer to ever do this. Worked with important VIPs, mainly actors and actresses, in designing interiors for their mansions.”

I revised and separated that data into an accomplishment and a bulleted sentence that read:

· Recognized as the youngest design entrepreneur with the launching of Designs by Sara.

· Established interior design / boutique catering to high net-worth clientele, including stars of stage, screen, and television.

Interior Designer Resume Critique:

In the next section, I listed your Education under the subheading “Academic Background.” Here, I mentioned the “Francois Designation for Outstanding Interior Design Work.”

I ended your resume with your professional associations.

Although you had listed ten, I reduced the number of associations to the two most important - “Vice-President, Interior Designers of America, 1999-Present” and “Member, European Designers, 1997-Present.”

Much of the data I excluded was due to your memberships having expired. Also, relevancy was a consideration. The excluded data would have added little to your already stellar background.

All decisions to modify or exclude data were in keeping with the guidelines and standards set forth by the Professional Association of Resume Writers (PARW).

It was a pleasure serving you, Sara.

Best of luck in all your future endeavors.
