Being able to strengthen my graphic design skills and working with the young people involved in the Dance Company to create a logo everyone was happy with.
The scheme has allowed me to see potential career paths in freelancing and graphic design which I had not previously considered.Dawn Dawson | Abertay University | BA (Hons) Computer Arts graduate
My internship gives a great insight into working life and how to communicate with clients when creating a product. It also helps to build a number of useful skills such as problem-solving, communication and being able to negotiate with others. I was also able to particularly expand my technical skills as well which is an added benefit.
I would say it definitely has helped with my future career and has allowed me to see potential career paths in freelancing and graphic design which I had not previously considered. I would absolutely recommend doing an internship to other students as it brings so many benefits and can also open doors for you!
