Yes it needs to be professional in interior design
They say the prefer a BA. However as long as you play the game. They will lie and act like you are actually a real designer, that's what they did with the Designer in Cranberry twp PA. Scamm
Yes, but I already had a design/art degree that was higher than interior design. (I went to a prestigious 5 yr school prior, and had 2 years of formal education before that.) They want you to either have the INTD degree, or be *in school* for interior design. But anyone can be labeled a designer there, even a sales associate that takes the platinum level training. Only the "Head" designer has to have a bachelor's in INTD to get the $50-60,000 salary.

From my experience, a certificate/diploma would be sufficient.

A certification/diploma from an Interior Design trade school is sufficient to become a design assistant or full time designer.
