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.

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

A space to create & playtest digital experiences. Come make video games, immersive art, AR filters, websites, and literally anything else you can think of— every other Thursday @ 1-2pm. If it’s creative + involves tech, we’ll do it. (We’re 100% online for Fall 2020! Meet us on Discord: https://discord.gg/sQUjMN6) Every 2 weeks, we pick a new topic (apps, environment art, interactive fiction, 3D modeling…) and challenge you to make a mini project on it. Each one comes with tutorials, inspiration & download links— so you don’t need any experience to join. Find your dream role, have a support system for when you get stuck, team up w/ other students for passion projects, or just try something new. Check out our website for free assets, example code, scholarships, jobs, and more :)
