Perspective: A week in the life of an Interior Designer - Alice's Work Experience

A week in the life of an Interior Designer - Alice's Work Experience

Amspec have recently welcomed school student, Alice, to join us for her work experience placement for school. Alice has been shadowing our Design team to gain an insight into the day to day life of an Interior Designer. We asked her the following questions: 

Alice, tell us a bit about yourself:

I am a Year 10 student and I am interested in a career in Architectural and Interior Design. I enjoy virtual reality computer games, such as the Sims 4, where I can spend time designing houses and choosing interiors. I have been able to put some of my skills into practice by helping to design rooms in my house during the planning of its renovation and choosing the furniture and layout for my own room.

In my spare time, I am a student at a dance academy where I have danced and performed on stage since the age of five, gaining many awards and certificates along the way.

What made you choose Amspec for work experience?

I've always had an interest in Interior Design and Architecture and was keen to gain some commercial experience in this line of work. Amspec are a local company to me and were very responsive when I reached out to them to enquire about work experience. They have a talented Design team and I've enjoyed shadowing them and learning about the various projects they are involved with. 

What have you learned from working with the Design team this week?

I have enjoyed learning how to use Design software such as AutoCAD and Solidworks and the process behind designing an office. 

What have you most enjoyed about your time at Amspec?

I have enjoyed being creative and coming up with my own ideas to design an office. 

Has your time at Amspec given you an idea of what career path you’d like to take?

Yes, it's confirmed i would like to consider a career in Interior Design. 

We wish Alice the best of luck with her studies and hope to see her again in the future!
