What I was learning in Design School. What classes were my favorites. What technology had I learned. Could I make finish boards and presentation materials.
Keeping tabs on all of the resources supplies whilst demand for my CAD work and Revit work skyrocketed. There were many times I forgot to eat lunch or dinner. As an intern I was learning to apply all that I had learned so it was fun, but there was a lot of work and a lot of hours. You are only as good as your last design. Some designers were shunned when their clients hated the design or the concept.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make IA Interior Architects a better place to work?
Train employees to help and empower each other; it may help long term in decreasing turn over rates and lowering client billing cost.
I was proud to say that IA offered many life learning opportunities as one of the top design giants, but was embarrassed to speak of how poorly clients and (hard working employees) were treated.
Friendly, but you have to work hard, really hard and be on top of your game at all times.
