Find a Creative Industries Intern
Meet Feraud Lallmohamed, a fifth year Creative Industries student. He interned at Devon Consulting & Public Relations Ltd. this past summer as a Public Relations and Social Media Intern.
We interviewed him this past summer about his internship experience, here's what he had to say:
- How was your internship experience?
Overall, I am very pleased with my internship experience! I feel very privileged to be able to get this kind of experience in my field while still being in school. As someone who has a very niche career goal (working specifically in the corporate beauty industry), I found it hard to find experience that would be relevant to my career path. I definitely planned on starting off getting experience that somewhat helped, until I was able to secure a position in my specific field. However, the fact that I was able to get an internship specifically in my area of interest, I was already very appreciative.
- What was one positive outcome from your internship? What did you learn?
One positive outcome that came from my internship was working with Brands that I've known, used and loved for years. My agency that I worked for has large scale clients such as NARS, Buxom and Laura Mercier. These are brands that I have always had an admiration for and to be able to say that I have worked for them and helped support their campaigns is honestly the biggest positive outcome I could ask for.
- Is there anything you would like to share with other Creative Industries students?
I would like to encourage any students who are feeling scared, anxious or nervous for their internship to take a deep breath. I know personally how nerve-wracking the process of finding one and completing one can be. However, these internships are for you to learn and grow from. One thing that I've kept in my mind while I'm at my position is if you are comfortable, you're not learning. Don't be afraid to try new things and most importantly, ask questions!
