College Showcases Interior Design Work at Job Fair

Interior design students looking toward graduation find job leads from networking events, school resources, and job fairs. Getting to know people (and allowing them to know you) is important to the success of an interior designer, so students spend much of their time learning how to network with members of the community – both as employers and as clients.

(KFBB) Great Falls, MT – If you want to freshen up your home décor in time for summer you have a great chance to do that. People are invited to scope out the latest interior design and designers at the MSU-College of Technology.

The event will provide a sneak peek into the talents being cultivated at the college and might even inspire would-be interior designers enough to inquire into the school’s interior design program.

The program at MSU’s College of Technology is an Associate of Arts Program. According to MSU, “the Interior Design program has been developed to prepare students with a wide variety of skills and competencies for entry into various areas of the design field, ranging from residential to commercial design. MSU- Great Falls is a National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) Endorsed School.” (view .pdf)
