Interior Designer

Odds of Hanging On

If you are employed by an architectural firm and your work is good, your odds of hanging on are very good. It is a slightly more tenuous situation if self-employed. In that case, it will depend on your body of work, word of mouth and your own gumption. Some of the most successful interior designers are self-employed go-getters, but so are many of the ones now living in a cardboard box on Park and 73rd.
