Beginner Interior Designer
Dear Hiring Manager,
My name is Walid Nagy, a fully accomplished executive in the process of having a career shift from the corporate world to interior styling and design which has been my hobby for numerous years. During those years, I have designed my own residences and helped friends in styling their places by giving them ideas and helping them with their furniture selections and color schemes. My Cairo residence was featured in several magazines in the year 2005. In order to build that hobby further, I have taken a 270 hours interior design course in the New York Institute of Art and Design which I have accomplished in 18 months while working and obtained my certificate in July 2019. I am also intending to continue taking other courses over the coming period in order to further build my skills, knowledge and experience.
From the corporate side, I have close to 25 years of work experience in the private sector, the United Nations, start-ups and international non-for-profits. Over the years, I have built myself a solid practice and understanding in the fields of sustainability, governance, marketing, corporate communication - external and internal, strategic philanthropy, social development, budgeting, Human Resources, project management, and operations. Those acquired business skills and experiences will help in my career shift.
I believe that you will find my business skills, studies, people management and interpersonal skills are of an added value to your organization; and I am confident that I will learn so much from your organization.
I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to read my resume and go through my portfolio which contains my interior design course project and photos of my residences that I have designed, and for considering me for working with you.
