Chicago Design Team, the largest showroom in the northwest suburbs, at the Arlington Design Center, offers several internships each semester. Chicago Design Team is open 9-5 weekdays; interns may schedule their time around their classes and personal schedule. They are currently looking for an intern enrolled in an Interior Design program who is reliable, highly organized, and has good customer service skills.
Interns will primarily work in the sample library, but will also help on the showroom floor. Some computer work and assisting designers and showroom staff will be required as needed.
Interns will gain a thorough understanding of the workings of a showroom, interact with designers, and have the opportunity to view the things that they are choosing for their clients. Interns are encouraged to complete as many specifically designed projects from their internship program, such as recreating an entire room with showroom products, selecting and creating fabric displays, and trade related blogging, to name a few. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend any seminar at the showroom, and to sit in on sales rep visits, where applicable. Interns have access to samples for their own projects too.
Many interns have become paid members of their staff or have been hired by designers they met while interning at CDT.
