Bio

Hi there!

My name is Salome, but people usually call me Sal. I am a young professional with experience in digital marketing, graphic design, and customer care. Currently, I am working on a 4-year BTech degree in Communication Design to pursue my lifelong passion in the art of marketing and digital communications. As someone who is creative and detail-oriented with strong analytical skills, I have a demonstrated history of successfully working in a fast-paced, progressive work environment.

My fascination with visual communications and the digital world started at the age of 13 when I launched Adobe Photoshop for the first time. I was previously interested in digital photography and the fact that I could modify or completely change the reality of my photos with the help of the program greatly excited me. Over time as I learned more about the importance of visuals and good design, I started reading books about marketing, branding and color theory. At this point, I had already dropped out as an economics major from University in Bulgaria and was living in New York ā€“ one of the most inspiring cities in terms of many things, including great designs & history.

During my first few years in New York, while I was still trying to settle in the city, I was rigorously working in many types of jobs. At the same time, I was focusing on and planning for my goal, which was a formal education in the field of visual communications. Six years after leaving Bulgaria and five years since moving to New York, here I am, pursuing my lifelong passion!

My interest in the field has only gotten stronger with time, and now that I have made it this far, Iā€™m ready to learn as much as possible and enjoy the process of this opportunity as well.

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.
