An internship is an opportunity for students to work in their chosen profession while attending school in order to gain valuable knowledge and work experience.



Most often, interns are not paid for the work they do monetarily, but are instead rewarded by the sharing of knowledge, ideas, opportunities for their portfolio, networks and possibly a permanent job offer if the intern takes advantage of the opportunity to be a valuable employee.
Students in the Valencia Graphics Department are required to take an internship. Students cannot take an internship until they have passed GRA2182C Advanced Graphic Design II OR GRA2143 Advanced Web Page Design with a C or higher. Students probably won’t qualify for a Graphics Internship until their final two semesters enrolled.

You will not be able to register for an internship without following the steps outlined on our blog:

    I was surprised to see so many criteria involved for picking a Graphic Artist. You have to be pretty well rounded in the field in order to take obtain jobs. Being as how I had just started my class today, it was a bit of an eye opener to see just how much you have to know in order to be hired for a job. This excites me to challenge myself and try to take as much in as I can but also scares me for how difficult the industry can be. I can only give it my 100% effort and faith I do well in the course and learn how to perfect my craft. I look forward to seeing how I can handle graphic design. Best of luck to anyone trying to make it as a Graphic Designer. Thank you for listening to my response.
