Guys, This is first time I am writing to this forum. My wife is interior designer (Diploma in Arch. in India)and had practiced the same for 7 years in India (1998-2005). She used to run her own office. She is now in USA on H4 (my dependent) since last 3 years and wants to persue her carrier again. I am just clueless how to start on this.

Should she be aquiring any experience (without pay) under supervision to get to know trends in this area?

Should she be aquiring any certification to start looking for Job.

We will be here in USA for another 3-4 years.

Thanks for your advise.

What state do you reside? Interior design laws vary for each state.

I would recommend she look up local interior design firms that best match the type of work she desires - and call and ask for informational interviews. My guess is that those meetings will lead to good things for her.
