ABI Internship Experience

The ABI internship course was a great way to develop my connections and real-world experience. The design industry is a notoriously difficult environment to get your foot into, but with ABI I have been able to develop my resume, portfolio, and experience in a way to really benefit my odds. Everyone that I interacted with at ABI were great people, all putting effort into supporting me, teaching, and making me feel comfortable with my internship and future endeavours. My program manager, Jason, was extremely helpful, responsive, and supportive.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Job interviews are always nerve-racking, but the ABI course focuses a lot on making sure you are prepared, which was a great help.

Re-discovery myself through a whole new lens.

The opportunity with Artbound is one that I truly think no one can really miss out on! As some one who had a struggle to figure out their own life post graduation especially in the creative industries, Artbound allowed me to see the opportunities that arose from those whilst refining my skills for future employers.

There was also value when it came to the internship process itself, allowing myself to collaborate whilst also gain new skills and opportunity within the art gallery scene.

If you also feel stuck in your own situation, why not give this a shot?

Supportive professional development and helpful for a career shift!

I joined artbound initiative because I was interested in trying an internship in design, even though my degree was in illustration/visual art. They helped me rebuild my resume and portfolio website to be able to land an internship in my field of interest - which I wouldn't have been able to do on my own.
Artbound Initiative placed me with a wonderful internship company that matched my interests and goals, and I had plenty of support along the way from my coordinator Jason. Definitely reccommend :)

An Invaluable Experience Meant For the Books

My introduction to ABI was one that was a bit unconventional. I was a gap-year student hailing from a relatively small town in North Carolina. Despite that, I had big dreams - dreams that I was committed to bringing into fruition. My experience working not only with the ABI network, but also those who I had the pleasure of meeting during my internship, has been truly insightful. Aside from broadening my world-view, this experience has definitely put my strengths and weaknesses into perspective. I feel like I've become more wise as a result of everything that has occurred throughout the length of the program, and it's for that reason that I'm so grateful.

  • I was able to met new people and subsequently gained a broader world-view.
  • I was able to assess my strengths and weaknesses, both professionally and personally.
  • I was able to release mindsets and behaviors that were limiting my potential.
  • I had to challenge my own expectations, in addition to others.

Great Opportunity

ABI and the ABI team gave me a lot of new skills and experience that I can take into my career as an artist. Not only did I learn how to get an internship, but I learned how to maneuver and market myself in the artworld. Thanks to ABI, I also made some incredible connections with other creatives. I did a virtual internship with a painter overseas. In this internship I was responsible for a lot of behind the scenes work in uploading pieces to sell, compiling a portfolio, etc. This gave me insight into what goes into being an artist and selling your work. The ABI team was incredibly helpful when I needed it. My program coordinator, Jason, was very helpful and attentive. When we spoke he was very kind and respectful, and answered all of my questions. Generally, the ABI team does really well in responding, and they expect the same from you. They answered any and all questions I had without belittling me, and were happy to help.

  • Great info on resume and cover letter building
  • Helpful in learning how to interview well
  • Good opportunity to make permanent connections in the art world
  • Modules need to be done in a certain amount of time, hard around holidays.
  • No info on how to make a website, social media, etc. (some tips, no instructions)
  • Some career coaches are better than others at communicating

Script Development Internship - Such a Great Experience!

Overall, the remote internship experience with ABI was so great. It was really cool to be able to connect with people from around the world who all have a desire to excel in the creative industries. ABI allowed me to connect to people I would have never been able to reach being from New Zealand. I was also able to gain such an invaluable insight into the world of fillmmaking/ pre-production even though it was virtual and this has opened so many more doors for me than I would have expected - it's also helped me so much in my own journey as a writer/ filmmaker. The ABI team, particularly Alif, Laura, and Zulfa, eased the journey by always being there to support me whenever I needed help. It was really great knowing that there were always people who were there to answer any concerns I had.

  • Career launch pad
  • Great connections from both industry professionals and the ABI community
  • Gives you access to an industry which is known for being difficult to 'break into'
  • Navigating time differences between host company and yourself
  • Can be isolating working remotely because of the lack of immediacy you have with other interns/ team members from the company

Animation Internship for Writing

There were some challenges in finding an internship that fits my interests and expectations for a starting date, however, the experience was still very rewarding. Though I would have enjoyed utilizing my technical skills in producing animations, I gained lots of experience in the writing process for television shows. It was very interesting to see the development take its shape through the company's method of brainstorming. I also gained connections with professionals at the company and other interns who share the same passion for storytelling.

  • Flexible hours
  • Gaining professional insight
  • Building connections
  • Slight misalignment to internship interests
  • Starting date changes for internship
  • Independent work

Virtual ArtBound Initiative Fall Internship

The process before the internship was immensely valuable. They train you to be a good intern and to navigate the nitty gritty of any application process now and in the future. I still find myself returning to the notes from that time quite often. The internship itself was a great experience and all of the Artbound staff are consistently and readily available to help throughout. Consistent communication between me and the Artbound staff made me feel confident during my internship and made the process go smoothly.
