Jessica's Story: Design Internship in New York
This is Jessica!
Jessica, a marketing and communications student at Earlham College, ventured into new areas of interest and secured a design internship at Factory PR, a prominent New York-based communications agency that specializes in the intersection of style and technology.
What was your Design Internship like?
My design internship was incredible! I spent the entire summer at Factory PR, and during this period, I experienced significant professional growth. I now have complete confidence in my abilities to enter the workforce and excel.
The team I worked with primarily focused on digital communication between brands and influencers, among other tasks. I monitored influencer activity on active campaigns, prepared end-of-month reports and insights, and uploaded content to the company drive. Additionally, I often assisted with influencer placements and send-outs.

In what ways do you believe this internship has influenced your career?
As this was my first internship, I had the opportunity to see, with fresh eyes, what it's like to work from 9 to 6 for five days a week. It helped me develop time management and communication skills. Most importantly, I learned about digital communication and marketing software and techniques. I was also fortunate to be placed at a company that specifically focused on providing their interns with the best possible experience, getting to know the company and industry through a 7-week intern program.
How did ArtBound Initiative help you during your internship?
I wouldn't have been as mentally and emotionally prepared as I am today without ArtBound. The program allowed me to learn about the creative industry and connect with many people. It truly opened doors for me! I would also like to highlight the constant kindness and support I've received from my ArtBound family.
I was truly fortunate to work with an incredibly talented and successful team that guided me through the inner workings of the communication industry.
