ArtBound Initiative Internship

I am grateful to ABI in helping me land my summer internship, which taught me so much about collaboration, communication, and taking initiative, especially when it involves my career. Through this program, I was able to receive guidance and navigate through my internship. There was always a professional I could reach out to and receive direction or resources. With this, I now know how to effectively write and compose my resumes, website, and portfolio. My favorite aspect of this program is the community and connections that I made.

Pros
  • Self-Growth
  • Resources
  • Networking

Thank-you Artbound

At the start I thought that Artbound was a fake service, but after connecting with others it most certainly was the real deal. They were amazing with their support and got me into a worthy internship that has taught me a lot about my industry. I was able to take part in fun projects and my supervisors were great with helping me in areas I struggled say presenting my folio and resume. Only bad side was COVID not letting me go overseas to New York where I was originally meant to go. But either way it was good.

Pros
  • Lovely people
  • Get industry experience
Cons
  • Was remote
  • COVID prevented me from going overseas

Remote internship with an amazing agency!

I am extremely happy with the agency I was matched with. Even though it was a remote internship, I am glad to have come out of the experience with new skills gained and existing skills polished, such as my organizational skills and adaptability. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, which encouraged me to ask questions. The program timeline was clear and the website was easy to navigate. I also created my portfolio through ABI, which is something I have never done before, and thus grateful for the guidance.

Pros
  • Build or polish your resume and portfolio
  • Supportive coaches
  • Being matched with an agency
Cons
  • Can have a lot of down time in between projects during remote internships

Gateway to the creative world! Great opportunity!

I found ABI through an online career fair that my school was hosting for students and was really excited by the opportunities they offered. I chose to do my internship locally, opting for a remote experience because of the pandemic. The two months of coaching through ABI's online modules prepared me about the soft skills that I needed to develop for the workplace, envision my career goals, and actively create steps to achieve them. The coaches and mentors that worked with me helped me navigate the career path I wanted and build my portfolio to a professional competitive level. The result was a portfolio which was so much better than the one I created at school. Through ABI's connections, I managed to get responses from different organizations and brands that were interested in me. I managed to land a remote internship at an agency that works for international brands. The internship was challenging, eye opening, and fun, with my mentor supervising my internship journey through my journal as well as regularly checking up with me and giving me an assessment. While working professionally, I had the opportunity to expand my skills, test my creativity, make mistakes, learn from them and rectifying them. I'm really proud of the designs and work I made by myself and in collaboration with my coworkers. The resources and support I received from ABI were BETTER than the ones that were provided to me by my school. Many thanks to Lauren, Sasha, Laura, Ginda, & Zulfa!

Pros
  • Great coaches and mentors that provide resources & support.
  • Great connections with great career opportunities.
  • My portfolio & resume is more professional in experience and content.
Cons
  • A bit pricey depending on your destination.
  • You have a certain amount of time to complete the courses.

ABI program

A gateway to the industry! A perfect opportunity to learn from the expert coaches before the internship to set a path for a successful experience during the placement period. Will value this as one of the best decisions of my life!

The platform is very easy to navigate and the supervisors are super helpful with any questions.

The best part is that the program goes beyond their way to find the internship best suited for individual needs and skills! Grateful to have participated and given a full time position within the placement company afterwards

Pros
  • Learn from the experts
  • Gain confidence
  • Prepare for your future

ABI Experience

The Artbound initiative team gave me tremendous support throughout my internship time. The preparatory work is second to none and I had everything I needed weeks before I even got my first internship. From the very beginning the ABI team was invested in truly listening to what I wanted for me future and helped me secure internships that will help guide me in my career. The Artbound initiative team are the most supportive team of mentors I have had the opportunity to work with. Just a couple 20-min one on one session with Laura alone, I was able to learn things that people a lifetime not knowing. After being with this program I can say that I am equipped with the tools to be successful in any creative profession and am confident in my pursuit to achieving my dreams.

Pros
  • Endless support from the ABI team
  • Better understandings for yourself and professions
  • Guidance and Insights on what employers are searching for
Cons
  • A little costly

Virtual Internship

I received a great amount of support and guidance from the Artbound initiative team throughout my internship time. I especially appreciated the preparatory work I did before starting my virtual internship. From the beginning the team was invested in truly listening to what I wanted out of a virtual internship and helped me secure one of the most significant internships thus far in my career. The program helped me understand what I should prioritize during an internship period, how to be an effective communicator and most importantly how to make sure an internship experience should not be treated as an isolated occurrence. The Artbound initiative team was the most supportive and understanding team of mentors I have had the opportunity to work with. The lessons I gained from the program will stick with me for the rest of my professional life. Throughout the program the team took care of the tiniest details and made me feel secure about the big picture as well. After this program I feel significantly more confident and competent in my abilities to carry out any professional endeavor I intend to pursue.

Pros
  • Support from the ABI team
  • Understanding what to prioritize in an internship
  • Not feeling alone through the internship period and being able to ask for guidance and support
