COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

This site is designed to help you find fieldwork/study situations of approximately eight hours per week at an internship site approved by the Department Internship instructor such as an advertising agency, graphic design firm, corporate design office, publications art department, photography or illustration studio, TV or multimedia production company. Students will be required to keep a learning journal of their internship in the form of a blog using Openlab. A portion of the class will be devoted to presenting and sharing experiences with classmates. Students will learn how to assess their talents, update their resume, and promote themselves and their work through social networks. Students will be required to setup and maintain at least two social media networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The instructors for this class are there as mentors if you have not yet found an internship before registering for the course. However, the instructors do not find an internship placement for you. It is your responsibility to find a position that fits your personal career path and help you transition to full time employment upon leaving the halls of CityTech. Ideally, you will use this site to find an internship the semester before taking the COMD 4900 class.

Working individually and as teams, you will be responsible for researching and developing creative concepts for various package goods and service sector clients. Conceptual thinking will be refined. and enhanced. Advertising that is “atypical” – that breaks the mold – will be discussed and encouraged since no one notices “nice advertising”. The importance of developing and understanding smart strategies and how they work into conceptual solutions will be addressed. You will be encouraged to develop a ePortfolio site. Examples of stellar advertising – past, present and breaking – will be shown throughout this course. When possible, appropriate field trips will be incorporated into our class schedule.
