31% Interior Designer

Title: Interior Designer

Situation: Lindsey lost her job when her boss decided to retire and close his architectural business during Covid-19. She had been an interior designer in many settings, plus as a business owner. She was looking for a way to sail into retirement with a good, stable, salaried position.
Strategy: We branded Lindsey as an Interior Designer with substantial Construction Management experience. After discouraging interviews for retail and sales positions, I urged her to keep working the Construction Management angle. She was able to land a job, with her alma mater University, working a variety of construction and design jobs.
