Interior design is one of the fastest and most competitive fields out there. There are many reasons for this. One being the popularity of HGTV another being that it is a creative and fun field to work in. Many students have dreams of designing homes for celebrities or building the next great hotel or night club, but did you know there are many other jobs that a designer can do besides home and commercial design?
Do you like to go on cruses? Well if you enjoy the look and feel of a cruse thank not only the entertainment staff, but the interior designer that helped design the accommodations that you use during your stay on the ship. Cruse ship interior design is a huge deal and a fun and exciting career choice.
If you have a love of history and art you may be able to get a job in a museum setting up the displays and deciding where everything else in the building goes. Yes even museums use interior designers. Another related field would be to go into teaching interior design. Once you have been in the field for a while you can share with up and coming designers your experience and knowledge. The best teachers are the ones who have been there and know what is really going on.
The last career I'm going to tell you about is RV and Bus design. Many celebrities and sports stars have buses that are just like mini homes. Most of the time an interior designer is involved in the process of designing or redecorating these homes. This is a great career if you can deal with some very picky people who have a lot of money to spend.
So there you have it. A few different ways to look at the interior design profession. There really are a lot more choices then most people think.
