What if I can’t succeed in interior design?

Recent SETEC University graduate Han Sovanphearun, 26, is apprehensive about whether or not he should get a job in the interior design field. He is concerned about the low pay and not being able to financially support his family or himself.

“I really like interior design and want to work in this field. But after graduating, I couldn’t because I needed to find a job that provided a higher income so I can afford to support my family,” he said.

Phearun currently works as a team leader in a factory where is paid a decent salary. He has worked there four years. Although he makes good money, he still hopes to get into interior design in the future when his family no longer needs his financial support.

“I will make too little money at first with interior design, unless I have more experience in this field like the skill of using certain design software,” he said.

Phearun strongly believes interior design can be a good career for long-term development, he just doesn’t have the means to live off of the low pay for right now.

“In the interior design field, if you have the financial capacity you can open your own design company,” he said. “If you don’t, you’ll have to switch often from one company to another in order to get higher pay.”
