KSA CT host job opporunities workshop

KSA CT held a job opportunities workshop for third year interior design students yesterday. The aim was to encourage students to consider a career in the kitchen industry in the hopes of bringing new talent into the industry.

The afternoon started with a 'speed dating' session with the three participating kitchen design software companies: Articad, Compusoft and KDMax. This was followed by a talk by Warren Franken of Andy de Klerk Cabinet Works on what is required to be a kitchen designer and what opportunities exist in the industry. Warren got all the students to make paper aeroplanes to showcase to them how each job in unique despite being in the same discipline.

This was followed my an address by John Autard of Interior Placements on the do's and don'ts of applying for a job and compiling a CV. Then Monica di Ruvo, chairperson of the CT IID, spoke about the IID's student membership.

The day was brought to a close with the students getting to interact with the KSA members that were showcasing themselves as potential employers and suppliers. Thanks to Joos Joiners, Caesarstone, Loubser Wood, Easylife, Eclipse, Quantum Leap Designs, Spotlight Kitchens and Cabinet Works for giving up their afternoon to meet with the students.

A final thanks to Bernie Latimer and Electrical Industries for supporting the event by ensuring both the students and guests had a supply of good coffee for the afternoon with their new coffee machine.

First ever KSA / IID function a success in Cape Town
The first ever joint KSA IID event took place last night in Cape Town at The Bank in Harrington St. With seventy one members of the kitchen and design industries in attendance the evening was a great success.

The evening kicked off with Stephanie Forbes from the KSA introducing Monica Di Ruvo the new IID representative to the guests. This was followed by a presentation on Blum's Dynamic Space by Tania Koen of Eclipse. Eclipse also showcased their range of stylish chairs and stools.

Steven Harris then took the stage to bring everyone up to speed on what is happening with the World Design Capitol. He also explained the concept of Third Thursday which is now in its fourth rotation in the area. He closed by running through the range of design software available through Furnspace 3D all of which were being demonstrated during the evening.

Heath Nash brought things to a close by explaining the concept of the British Council Maker Library (a World Design Capitol project). KSA members were reminded of the call for their off cuts, old samples and unused materials for the Library's craft projects. Heath then invited guests to get active in the library and try their hand at making a new and innovative martini.
