  • HIBOU INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

    Are you a recent interior design graduate? Or maybe you graduated a few years back and haven't had the right chance to work in the field? We're looking for a sharp, eager interior designer with a great attitude and solid work ethic. Is that you?

    If these qualities speak to you and you are interested in learning more about the business of interior design, you may be the perfect fit for our team. Our internship program is an experience like no other. The years of training you receive in school does not prepare you for what it's really like to work as an interior designer. We know because we've lived it. In this trade, our education comes from the experience of working on real projects. Every company is different and we're inviting you to apply for a unique opportunity that would give you an insight into our business and how we run it!

    What does that mean? We offer our interns one on one direct learning with our entire team. We're talking about a real, hands-on experiences. Our interns are invited to shadow our client consultations as well as take part in the conceptual work involved in our projects. They are introduced to our best trades who we've built close relationships with over the years. By the end of the internship, our candidates understand how we run our small business, the processes involved in both our decor and renovation projects, and how to see a project through from A to Z.

    What do we expect from our interns? We are a small team of hardworking designers who work on over a hundred projects a year. We are ambitious, committed and driven and we are looking for someone who has a similar work ethic. We value punctuality and honesty and we're looking for a team player who is flexible and is up for a challenge. 

    We are always looking to grow and we're therefore looking for serious candidates who show interest in pursuing a career in interior design. If by the end of the internship, we feel that you would be an asset to our business, you may be considered for a permanent position. Please email your CV with the reason why you think you would be the perfect candidate to info@hiboudesignco.com.

    See what our past interns have to say about their experience interning with us;

    "Interning for Hibou Design and Co. is an incredibly rewarding experience. The Hibou team is extremely passionate about their work and are role models for all entrepreneurs in the field.  They are highly professional and productive and encourage you to learn as much as possible. As an intern, you will be exposed to all aspects of the business from consultations, design development, office management and customer service. I highly recommended this experience to anyone who is dedicated to becoming a successful interior designer."

    "My experience with Hibou started off as a very insightful opportunity. As an intern, I got to see and live the back end of running a small company and I had the pleasure of working alongside two wonderful designers. This experience allowed me to not only acknowledge their strengths but it allowed them the opportunity acknowledge mine as well. The internship ended and Hibou Design & Co. offered me a full-time position working for the firm as a junior designer."
