Take as many chances as you can … those experiences (good or bad) will build your knowledge and help you become a professional.
Because of the classes I took at MSU and the guidance from my peers and professors, I was able to develop my skills while learning key design techniques that I have been able to implement and refine in my career. These basic fundamentals enabled me to build my proficiency in design, giving me the ability to thrive in any industry as a graphic designer and focus on my goal of being a creative director in the future.
Take as many chances as you can. Whether a job leads to a promotion,
