If I don't graduate with a degree in Interior Design, is it very hard to find a job?

I am asking this question because I am studying interior design right now, but due to some academic issues I can't continue with the major. I still want a job associate with interior design will that be something difficult to do? The major I will be changing to was my minor - Japanese. #architectural #japanese #interior-architecture #interior-designer

Hi Shi Ying,
Many companies do require at least a bachelor's degree for interior design position. If you wish to continue to work in this field, you must have at least an Associate Degree. The assocate degree will get you up to as an Design Assistant but you will face a lot of competitions because there are many graduate students out there looking for a job. Meanwhile, if you go for a furinture sales, you still be able to find a job there.

Hope this help and Good Luck.

Hi there,
you should probably be asking yourself why you're changing your major to Japanese? What kind of jobs will you find with this as a major? why were you minoring in it in the first place?
The only jobs you'll find in "design" is probably going to be sales jobs. Mostly furniture sales and if its retail, its weekends, nights long hours and holidays.
You should probably assess what it is you really want to do and go for it. Even if you finish a degree in Interior Design, you're not always guaranteed a job in the field. Work hard in school and your portfolio. That will get you your first interview.. and network network network!!!!
