At-Home Mom Reentering The Work Force (Interior Design) Resume

If you are a recently turned mother reentering the work force in the field of interior designing, having taken a break from employment and thus leaving a substantial gap in your employment history, then you need to mention the reason for the employment gap in your career objective. While constructing your resume, you need to include a short phrase in your career objective stating that you are resuming employment after a gap. This leaves the reader with no black holes while picturing your professional image. As a complement to this, you need to mention the reason for your employment gap in a personalized manner, in your cover letter.

Career objective

An interior designer resume should start with a healthy career objective, following your personal details. Your objective should be laid out in such a manner that it productively places before the reader, your career related goals and aspirations. The objective not only acts as an introduction to your resume, but also outlines the purpose of your application. Here, you need to be brief, yet informative. It is necessary that you form 2 or 3 short phrases, and then organize them effectively into a sentence, which clearly explains that you are resuming the work force after a break.

Your resume should include the following sections:

  • Personal details - Name, street address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email id
  • Career objective - Study the career objective in the sample of an interior design resume, given below for your reference
  • Key skills - Include your transferable skills and the professional skills pertaining to your profile
  • Work Experience - Name and location of the employer, duration of employment, your designation within the company, and a brief job description (Include 5-6 significant points only)
  • Accomplishments - Include the information of any awards, rewards, or achievements in your educational or professional history, unless they are irrelevant or mundane (may be included as a sub-section in the Key Skills section)
  • Academic qualification - Name of the degree, name and location of the institute/university, year of course completion, and grades obtained/scores secured
