Now that your (semester/college career) is over what are some goals that you plan to work toward this summer?
Some goals that I want to set for myself is to improve my technical skills. I want to work more in programs like Illustrator and Photoshop. Indesign has been sort of my best friend my entire career and I would like to be able to branch out to the other Adobe programs. Therefore, over the winter break (and into the summer) I will be practicing my Illustrator and Photoshop skills.
• Looking back at (this past semester/your time) at FC,
What is one of the best experiences you had working here?
One of the best experiences I had working here was working with WAC. I don’t have that many clients but I always look forward to speaking with the WAC Writing Fellows. I enjoy the creative freedom they give me with my designs and I also appreciate the fact that they are always looking for ways to get the message out about what they do.
What is one thing that could have been done to improve your experience working here?
Looking back now, and I know it wasn’t necessarily in my control, but one thing I would do to improve my experience is adjust my work schedule. As of now I have worked in the late afternoons to evenings, and on the later days of the week. I realize now that a lot of the work needs to get done by the beginning of the week, or sometimes the clients want to meet earlier than my work hours. I know I’m already taking morning classes next semester. Since I can’t really do anything about what times I work, I want to spread myself out more throughout the week so the clients can get what they need sooner.
