Bio

My name is Silvia Nava, I graduated from Queensborough Community College with an Associate Degree in Computer Information Systems. For the Fall 2016 semester, I transferred to New York City College of Technology to pursue a Bachelor Degree in Communication Design. I am a graphic designer, fluent in Microsoft Suite and Adobe software.
One of the main reasons I changed to the Communication Design major is because I enjoy the way a designer can express a concept through a visual. It is also impressive to see the amount of research behind every detail in the designs. In my opinion, a design can be a first impression that holds a lot of weight. I hope to incorporate a strong message through my work while also expressing a bit of my personality.

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.
