New Adventures

I’m so excited to finally share with you guys what my new job is! As of about 2 weeks now, I’m the Creative Associate at Branch Design in Chicago. Branch Design is a boutique interiors firm. As far as job responsibilities go, I’ll be doing a bit of everything, which is exciting for me. I love variety and new challenges, so I think it will be a great fit!

I came across the job posting online and knew I should apply for it. Honestly, I figured my chances of being offered a position or internship were pretty slim because I don’t have any formal training or education in all (or any!) things interior design. I do, however, have my mom’s creativity and “eye”, so I just went for it and applied. I met with Caroline a couple days later for an interview and we hit it off right away. Not long after, she offered me a position and I excitedly accepted!

The timing of it couldn’t have been better. I had been interested in getting into the interiors/design field, but wasn’t sure how or where to start. So to say that this was perfect timing is a bit of an understatement. I’m so looking forward to learning and being challenged in new ways.

Here’s to new adventures!

    So exciting!

    How did you relay on your application/resume that you do have experience in interior design but no real formal training? I'm running into this problem when applying for jobs where I feel that I am qualified for the position but may not necessarily have all the formal training behind it but know that I could certainly do the job.
