Where to look:
Look for interior design jobs in the yellow pages.
The yellow pages have listings of Interior Design companies, cabinet makers, paint suppliers, etc. Call to find out if these places are hiring and to learn how to apply there. Begin by calling the companies you are most interested in then move on to the others.
Look for interior design jobs online.
You can find job listings all over the internet. One design firm I called (that wasn’t hiring) recommended the website www.indeed.com to me, which has listings from various job sites, including listings from Monster.com. Use different keywords, including ‘Interior Design’, ‘Interior Decorating’, ‘Home Improvement’, and more. Also, Google these keywords along with the words ‘Fargo, ND’ to find listings of design related companies in Fargo. If they have websites, check them out. You may even be able to apply online or email a resume to them.
Drive around and drop off resumes.
I’ve done this a few times already. Dress professionally and print off a few copies of your professional resume. If you see a business you may be interested in working for, stop and drop off a resume. Even if they aren’t hiring now, they may hold onto your resume and call when they do need someone.
Even though most of the interior design firms in Fargo may not be hiring right now, you can get your foot in the door by applying at related companies in the area. For example, you may try Sherwin-Williams, Bed Bath & Beyond, Lowe’s, Scheel’s, Slumberland, and other interior design related companies. I wish you the best of luck in your job search!
