Looking for Internships
Even in a normal economy, looking for an internship can be really tough. Over the past month, I think I’ve sent out nearly 20 resumes and only gotten a response from one company. That company turned out to be almost 2 hours away by train, so I had to politely decline. Sad.
I found a pretty cool site the other day, One Day, One Internship. I think it’s nice that they take their time out to research internships in different states for students and those looking for entry-level stuff. They also have a website for regular jobs. How sweet!
I have a lot of things, such as new sketches and a billion comics, but I’ve been kinda busy, not to mention the whole snow day thing and my need to be in it.
A website I finished work on has gotten loads of good reviews:
“The company’s website is awesome!!”
“Not sure if you received this yet but the site is quite impressive. ”
“In case I didn’t mention it before, this new website is definitely something to be proud of. Simply fab!”
I’m so glad people enjoyed the website. The best part of being a designer is making people happy and seeing a satisfied look upon their faces. Click here to see a demo of the site.
I guess that’s all for now! ♥
Finding Meaning In Design When Nothing Is Fine
We’re all aware: working while under duress is terrible! Especially as a designer. People often talk about design as a superpower because you can illustrate the future—and it often is quite magical. But when your skillset doesn’t feel immediately relevant to your survival, the magic evaporates. In this very personal and relatable talk, I will share my experience with navigating hard times and experiencing a career block. Attendees will learn techniques for overcoming the malaise and building a guided, sustainable design career.
