Can you tell me more about what you do as a graphic design intern for Seton Hill’s Marketing Department?
As a graphic design intern for the marketing team much of my work includes the editing and creation of email graphics, magazine ads, and website story headers.

I am graduating in December 2021 and I am currently searching for a job where I can continue to utilize my skills as a graphic designer and expand upon my artistic abilities.
