Graphic Design Intern

Keep asking questions and seeking opportunities for yourself. Don't stress yourself out, but also don't get lazy and think just having classes and one part-time job on-campus (< 10 hours) is going to prepare you for your career. Also, make yourself dependable. Don't count on someone else to prepare your path (completely) for you; forge your own way!

I would strongly recommend anyone applying for graduate school to work with their professors and mentors within their department. Also, definitely reach out to the career center for help with resumes and interview practice because it is such a great resource for students that will only help them achieve their goals for graduate school and beyond.

Start exploring summer internships in the fall. Many companies will close their internship applications by the 1st of the year and so it is important to research early
