Student Mentoring Week (SMW) is fast approaching. SMW is the result of IIDA’s efforts to acknowledge the important role that students play in furthering the design industry. During the week, students shadow an interior design mentor at their office or firm. Student and mentor pairings are random, and based on availability and location. Student Mentor Week takes place March 31st – April 4th The registration deadline is next Wednesday, February 12th.
Participation is FREE for IIDA members, so why not try? If you are not currently a member, now is a great time to consider joining. This experience alone would be well worth your yearly membership fee!
In addition to experiencing a day in the life of an established interior designer, all SMW participants have the option to partake in the Lloy Hack Essay Competition for a chance to win $1000 by submitting a 2-3 page summary about their experience.
