So, I’m in my fourth year of college. I’ve had quite the experience so far. Originally, I went to the University of Minnesota for architecture. Then after one semester there, I transferred to South Dakota Stat University for architecture. After spending a year and half in the architecture department, I switched my major to advertising. I have minors in art, marketing, and graphic design.
It’s been quite the bumpy ride. Throughout high school, I was so set on majoring in architecture, that I didn’t consider anything else. I’m good a math. I love working on art. I put the two of them together and eventually fell in love with architecture. That major has led me to think about problems in a conceptual manner in order to form together a solution. I don’t regret anything I learned from my architecture classes.
Here I am now, with about one year into the advertising major at SDSU, and I’m on the prowl for an internship! I’m searching for one in the Brookings or Sioux Falls area. Eventually, I would like to find a job in Minneapolis or Chicago, once I graduate.
Currently, I’m working at Daktronics. I work as a commercial marketing student writer. My daily tasks vary. Sometime, I write articles or news releases for the company paper. Sometimes, I do research on the sign industry market and search for possible media contacts. Sometimes, I get to design layouts for documents, brochures, and other types of print.
I love it. I can honestly say that I enjoy my job and the people I work with. Some days are better than others, and some projects are better than others. All in all, I enjoy it.
Now, I want to experience an internship some where else. I’m receiving internship credit for my student job at Dak…but I want to see what else is out there.
I have applied for Lawrence and Schiller, Fresh Produce, 9Cloud, and Brookings Radio. Ideally, I want a payed internship. We’ll see what happens.
Any who, it’s really all I’ve been thinking about lately! I’ll keep you posted on what happens. Just thought I would relieve my mind of the many possibilities I’ve been considering for the summer.
