Art & Design Internship
Next Step Connections organizes internships in graphic design studios, contemporary art galleries and museums.
Competition for art gallery internships is generally high. However, employment opportunities are expected to grow as fast as average for careers in art so there are many jobs to fill, especially in the area of multimedia (including growth for video producers, animators, and video game designers). For art and design enthusiasts, Asia is unarguably where the focus is right now. Although relatively new to the art and design world, Asia is quick to catch up. New galleries are sprouting and museums are avidly organizing world class exhibitions to keep the local art lovers satisfied.
The design industry is a vibrant, varied, and dynamic creative sector that plays a powerful and important role in many areas of our lives. Designers help conceive and shape products and services; they contribute hugely to the visual world around us; they create communications for organizations of all shapes and sizes; they influence how we use buildings and help improve our workspaces; they can contribute to building better public services or create more efficient working processes; they create the interfaces we use daily on digital devices; they help us digest information; they create the clothes you’re wearing and the chair you may be sitting on. Unfortunately, there are more students leaving design education than there are jobs to receive them. This means that in addition to qualifications, a designer’s industry experience, skill set and creative ability will be very influential in securing a job or client work.
