I was recently hired by IE Office Brooklyn College to be their intern. This institution is located at Brooklyn College campus. The Brooklyn College Office of the Provost for Institutional Effectiveness aims to process to plan and make strategies to fulfill the College’s mission. The office’s main client would be students who are looking for what they are doing, how they are doing, and how to make it better to meet their goal. The office is a key tool to help students in the path of success. Honestly, I am excited to join their team and develop my skills and knowledge.
Here’s a link to all two websites:
This was my first time having an in-person interview and I felt nervous. I make sure everything is perfect before the interview, like the cover letter, resume, and portfolio works. Also, I did some research about the interview general question they might ask.
On that day of the interview, I came early before the interview started, so I waited outside and reviewed again for the interview questions. At 11 o’clock, I walked into the office, I saw Isana who was one of the interview staff, and she asked me some general questions. When I prepared to respond to the question, another staff member came in. Isana asked me the same question, I have realized that the interview question I prepared last night was totally different. She asked me “Who is my professor in communication design class, is professor Davis?” I said yes, and she told me that they worked together before.
Interview questions they asked:
- Do you have html / css experience?
- Do you know how to use excel?
- Do you use Indesign or other software?
Then, they moved over and discussed with each other about my portfolio works. Also, they showed their previous works and described the job profile for me in detail. After that, Isana asked me my preferred schedule and let me come here on February 24. Finally, I got hired and I felt excited I have this opportunity to work for them, and which can enhance my skills and knowledge.
This Spring semester was the beginning of my career. It was a rush time to seek a job because I have to update my resume and put more portfolio works on the website. I am worried that I don’t have enough time to find a position. After that, I have looked for different job websites, like Indeed, Glassdoor, professor Tanya Goetz’s dashboard. I tried to send out many applications and resumes that applied for a Web Design position or any kind of job related to Design.
I have found one internship at IE Office Brooklyn College. The professor Tanya Goetz showed us the information about this job opportunity in class before I applied for it. I think that will be a great opportunity to enhance my skills and knowledge. I emailed them with my resume and cover letter to tell them I am interested in this position. On the same day, they kept in touch with me soon and scheduled an interview meet at the Brooklyn College campus.
The International Photography Center (ICP) is one of the world’s leading photographic agencies dedicated to the practice and exploration of various forms of photography.
I scrolled and looked at various events posted on the dashboard. When I clicked on this webpage, I decided to go on Friday, February 21. This was the first one I attended, it was a great experience and I’m glad I participated in it. In this event, I was led by ICP staff. They were joyful to share their thoughts and explained each piece of artwork in detail.
