The World of Design at Your Fingertips

Inspiring Design Students

by Erline M. Altamira

A colleague and I presented “Opportunities in Design and the Hospitality Industry” to interior design and industrial design students at The Art Institute this past Tuesday. Our presentation covered a quick overview of what to expect in our design industry. It was interactive and we gave them a networking exercise to explain the important of knowing your resources and connecting with contacts.

It was definitely was rewarding and refreshing to see the un-jaded eyes entering our design world. From our personal background, to company’s introduction, to questions about sustainability, our conversation ended leaving the students with a better sense of what to expect during their internships and after graduation. We left them with a hope of a soon-to-be-better economy and our contact information for future questions that they may have been shy to ask.

Have a great weekend!!
