Bio

My name is Qing Zhang and I am studying at new York City college of technology. My major is communication design. Before choosing this major, I was curious about this major and wanted to challenge myself to try to become a designer. I haven’t studied high school in the United States. In fact, I didn’t like studying in China so my English foundation is very poor. On the other hand, I also hope that this major will improve my English.

I didn’t have any art foundation before I chose this major. So when I started to take a professional course, it was difficult for me to communicate with other people, and it was difficult for me to learn to draw. I don’t have a great goal. I hope that I can learn every lesson I have, and that every lesson is rewarding. When I can successfully complete all the courses, I will try to work towards a designer.

My Courses

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.
