When I earned my bachelor of science in interior design in 2012, the economy was recovering from the “Great Recession” of the mid-to-late-2000s. I interned for an interior designer who, due to the economy, spent more time doing weddings and events than interior design — although I was able to dabble in decorating while running events. During that time, I also worked in the restaurant industry.
After two years of working both jobs, I wanted a stable career where I could use and expand my design knowledge. A friend from college worked at Dunn-Edwards and she frequently posted on social media about how much she loved her job. I reached out to her to learn more about the Professional Color Advisor (PCA) program role — I have now been in the PCA department for more than eight years.
I love working for a company that is well-established and has a long history of providing superior products and excellent customer service.
