Now I'm no intern guru, as I haven't even started my internship yet. (please pray all goes well and nothing bad happens)
I noticed there are a lot of high school and college students on the forum who probably could use some tips and information on being an intern,getting an internship, learning to be professional,etc. So ANY input would be great. Perhaps you guys could pitch in some tips, share some internship stories, tell us how to pick up the boss's Starbucks in less than five minutes,and all that jazz.
I'll start off with some questions...
-Whats the difference between internships with graphic design firms, illustrators, toy companies apprenticeships with Fine artists and internships with game studios/movie studios?
-Is the myth about the intern does the dirty work true? 'Dirty work' meaning, pick up my starbucks,call pizza hut, clean the computer, wash the brushes,trim the paper,etc.
-As an intern, what should I look out for in the studio? Like what are the important things I should observe and know about.Should I sit in with client meetings if they let me, should I ask questions as theyre working on something, should I take notes?
-What are the dos and donts?
Any input would be great, so please post! Thank you!
