Chowan University student shares experience at the Graphics Intern/Employer Day
MURFREESBORO, NC – Hank Griffin, Chowan University Senior of Kinston, NC, majoring in Graphic Communications, participated in the 25th annual intern/employer day hosted by the Krueger School of Graphic Communications at Chowan University on March 16th.
Fifteen companies from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia were in attendance. Over the course of the day each employee interviewed up to ten students for about twenty minutes in the hopes of matching students for internships or jobs. Griffin participated in 4 interviews during the day. He shared, “It’s good exposure, and provides experiences in the interviewing process.”
Griffin is still waiting for a response about a possible job after graduation. He shared, “I enjoy the printing aspect and working on the layout, however, I do have experience designing content as well.” After graduation, Griffin would like to gain employment in the digital printing field. He hopes his experience at Chowan and at the intern/employer day will continue to provide him with the knowledge and opportunities to find a good fit for future employment.
Graduates from the program receive a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Communications. Considered to be one of the premier programs of its kind in the country, the faculty along with their industry advisory council are constantly assessing the ever-changing needs in the printing and packaging arena. At a recent advisory council meeting, the committee agreed the University should focus on color management, packaging, variable data printing, MIS systems, and mailing, as well as the traditional areas of offset, flexo, and screen printing.
