Time is Ticking…

Countdown Until Graduation

As the time to apply for jobs nears I have a lot of decisions to make. Where do I want to live? What kind of company do I want to work for? What type of work do I want to do? It’s almost enough to drive me crazy. (If it hasn’t already) When I considered where I wanted to live and work in the future, like most college graduates in the tri-state area, New York City is my dream. I have had the chance to intern in two very different parts of the city and found things that I liked about both of them. I live in New Jersey so any company in the New York/New Jersey area is where I want to be.

I have interned at three very different companies; a financial company in the marketing department, an advertising/design firm as an interactive intern, and a nursing school as a design intern in the public relations department.  I felt the most at home at the advertising and design agency.  I found everything that was going on in the office interesting and was learning more and more every day. I could see myself working in an office similar to that everyday and never getting bored.  I found myself staying later than I actually needed to because I was so wrapped up in the work that I was doing. I also want the company to not be so large where I do not know everyone who works there. I want to know who everyone is and what their role is in the company.

I am drawn in by print design but I also have recently discovered that after doing an interactive internship, I love web and mobile design.  It offers new challenges that push me to think outside of the box.  I am pursuing a maters degree in Interactive Media which has increased my knowledge and  interest in the interactive field and I have become fascinated by the recent developments of advertising and promotion through social media.
