3. What are the career opportunities after Interior Design graduation? What is the future of Interior Design?

In Vietnam’s integration trend into the global economy, investors are also interested in investing in business space to attract more customers. There are increasingly high-rise buildings and high-end apartments in all provinces and cities. It means that the demand for interior design for apartments and buildings also increases rapidly and seems to have no limit.

However, there is a fact that the number of students in this field of study is relatively small compared to the demand for interior design in the market, leading to a “thirst” for well-trained and highly specialized human resources to meet job demands. Besides the attractive salary, the job opportunities in the Interior Design industry are also extremely open, which will be an advantage in helping students pursue this creative art industry.

After graduation, Interior Design students can take up positions such as:

  • Interior designer: Implement projects for houses, apartments, villas, companies, hotels, commercial centers, and entertainment areas at interior design companies, construction companies, furniture import and export companies, or interior decoration trading companies…
  • Design/architecture/lighting consultant for civilian construction, industrial projects, hotels, houses, schools, and hospitals…
  • Project manager, consultant, and supervisor of interior design and decoration works
  • Consulting on materials, colors, materials, and items.

  • Trading in products and materials related to architecture and interior decoration.
  • Self-established company in interior design, design consultancy, and interior and exterior items business.
  • Teaching or working at state companies or architecture, natural resources, and environment departments. 

According to statistics, Interior Design is an above-average-paying job; and successful interior design professionals can receive “huge” salaries. However, this sector is highly competitive as individuals’ value is based on performance, creativity, aesthetic tastes, and the ability to apply knowledge to solve a problem.

Therefore, it is essential for those who work in Interior Design to have a passion for art and creativity; choosing a quality training program to develop the necessary skills is also vital for future career development.
