Internships…Not As Intimidating As You Think
My name is Abby and I am a Senior here at Temple; I am studying Advertising with a concentration in Art Direction. This past semester, I worked as a Graphic Design intern at the Alumni Relations Office here on campus. Up until this past summer, I wasn’t entirely comfortable or confident in my designing abilities and as a result, hadn’t searched for a Graphic Design internship. The idea of going to an internship and creating work for someone other than myself or a professor really intimidated me. Now that I’ve completed my internship, I can happily say that I was worrying over nothing. Supervisors understand you are an intern and that you’re there to learn, not create award-winning work; as long as you’re trying your best, you have nothing to worry about.
