Now I dont know how an Interior Designers resume looks, but I recommend reading up on how to write a resume and cover letter on CareerBuilder.com
Click on the menu on the right. Select Career Resources.
Scroll down to the bottom center of the page and check out the topics in blue. There is a lot
of good info there.
There is this job in Northern Virginia. Dont worry about the experience criterion. It seems low enough for a recent grad to be considered. Advice: job ads are written for the ideal candidate. They write them with every possible criteria they can think of. I say, go ahead and apply, esp. if you did well in school and can get our profs to sing your praises. Try getting the profs to write letters of recommendation to the employer, even before the employer asks. It's a tough economy and you have to be aggressive. Oh and with your distinctive good looks, you might want to put a pic on your resume. People like to work with good looking people, esp if sales is involved.
