Nature of Work An interior designer enhances the function, safety and aesthetics of interior spaces. While taking into account how different colors, textures, furniture, lighting and space work together to meet occupants' or visitors' needs. Interior designers work with both private and public spaces. Including residences, shopping malls, schools, offices and hospitals.
Education & Training Training to become an interior designer takes two to four years and is available from professional design schools or colleges and universities. One can earn an associate degree or certificate by attending a two to three year program, or a bachelor's degree by attending a four year program. Upon graduating with a bachelor's degree, one would most likely begin a one to three year apprenticeship program at a design or architecture firm and work under the supervision of an experienced interior designer. A graduate with a certificate or associate degree would usually start his or her career as an assistant to an interior designer. Many states require interior designers to be registered, certified or licensed.
Other Qualifications Interior designers should possess strong creative and artistic skills to make their designs aesthetically pleasing for their clients. To successfully find clients and understand their needs, interior designers require excellent interpersonal skills.
Job Outlook & Future Prospects The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that interior design will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2018 but there will be a lot of competition for jobs. While there are a lot of people who want to work in this field, those who have significant formal training and are creative and persistent will fare best.
Earnings The annual salary for someone with the job title Interior Designer may vary depending on a number of factors including industry, company size, location, years of experience and level of education. The median expected annual pay for a typical Interior Designer in the United States is around $72,759. Wages for interior designers are expected to raise about 1.2% throughout future years.

Nature of Work Provide service to bank customers by conducting appropriate transactions and meeting the needs of customers by referring them to appropriate departments in the bank. Responsible for handling customer transactions at banks, including taking deposits, disbursing cash, opening accounts, and investigating fees.
Education & Training Bank teller positions require a high-school diploma or GED. A college degree isn't necessary to finding work, but a 2-year associate or 4-year bachelor's degree in math, finance or business may help one get hired or promoted. Education in a second language can also help in finding work with banks looking for applicants fluent in foreign languages.
Other Qualifications Tellers need customer-service skills because they interact constantly with bank clients. As a representative of the bank, it's important to be friendly, helpful, courteous and patient. Computer skills are key for tellers, who spend much of their day using computers to help clients. Computers help tellers check customers’ financial information, as well as research information on products and services. Tellers need strong speaking, writing and listening skills. They must understand and answer customer questions regarding interest rates, service charges and account histories.
Job Outlook & Future Prospects The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 1 percent growth in the number of teller jobs from 2010 to 2020. That's well below the average growth rate of 14 percent for all U.S. occupations. Positions for tellers will not grow significantly because the growth of bank branches is expected to slow. Also hurting job growth is the rise in online and mobile banking, which allow customers to handle their own transactions with fewer visits to the teller window. Despite slow overall job growth, tellers entering the field should be able to find work because the occupation has high turnover, and that will create new openings.
Earnings The annual salary for someone with the job title Teller I may vary depending on a number of factors including industry, company size, location, years of experience and level of education. The median expected annual pay for a typical Teller I in the United States is around $23,698. Wages for bank tellers are expected to have little to no change.
