Graphic Design - Communications Internship – CA- Fall 2017

Imagine an internship in which you’ll design images every week that will be seen by thousands of people every day.

Imagine an internship where you are a full-fledged member of a fast-paced communication team and the only coffee you’ll be getting is your own. Now imagine kicking off your career with an internship in the place where dreams come true. Interested?
