How has your internship helped build skills and clarify your career goals?

It helped me refine my design skills and learn to work in a professional environment

How do you apply your Liberal Arts skills in your internship?

By using my illustration and adobe software skills to develop promotional material

What is the a typical day like as an intern, any challenging or exciting aspects?

I come into the office and ask my supervisor for my daily assignments and continue working on them until the end of the day at 5pm, all while working along a fellow intern in charge of PR messages and my supervisor to achieve a good product. The most challenging aspect of my internship is learning to better manage my time and work more efficiently. The most exciting aspect of my internship is being able to write and go through with a proposal for a major promotional project. What surprised me most was the sheer amount of friendly and welcoming people here, and the most meaningful experience are the relationships I formed and the experience I gained.
