- A people person?
- Able to manage budgets?
- Attentive to details?
Step 2: Get trained

Step 4: Look for a job
Whether you want to work as a freelancer, start your own business, or find employment within an established company, finding that first interior decorating job is often very difficult. It is here that training and experience starts counting heavily in your favour: the more training and experience you have, the easier it will be to secure an interior decorating job.
