As an intern, you will be expected to work one-on-one with undergraduate and graduate students who are seeking assistance in the development of their visual presentations. Interns and students will focus on the ways in which language, visuals, and aesthetics can work together to create arguments and focus audience attention. You will also consider the use of color, layout, text, and graphics in visual presentations. Furthermore, interns will inform students about various platforms for presentation, with a focus on how to decide which platform is the most effective for their given presentation.
When not holding consultations, interns complete design projects like infographics, layouts, flyers, and marketing materials for the Pearce Center and attend meetings with VID leaders and interns twice a week to discuss projects and receive training.
You will be expected to work 12-15 hours each week, 160 hours total over the semester. Per UPIC's student salary rates, you will be paid $10 - $12 per hour.
