Emily O’Hearn, Art Director of Print Services for the American Marketing Group recently spoke with and provided her expertise to our College Experience Employment Class. Emily has a wealth of experience having been in the graphic design industry for seven years.
She shared a wealth of advice for the students as they begin their internships, including; “be yourself, be confident. Know that it is alright to make mistakes. Everybody is growing and everybody is learning. If you do not like where you are and you do not like the job you are in there are people to help you reach goals. It is important to set goals for yourself, you can do anything you set your mind to”
Emily stressed the importance of having passions and interests outside of the workplace. She loves dogs, but her apartment complex does not allow pets, so she fulfills this passion by helping out at a local animal shelters as a dog walker. The College Experience expects all alumni to volunteer in some capacity. Therefore, we were happy to hear that Emily has these values.
We thank Emily, all of the instructors, and the students for asking their excellent questions. The whole group gave Emily a healthy round of applause at the end of class!
