Angelina Craig – Lead Designer at NVS Design Indianapolis
Did you have a part-time job as a student?
Yes, I worked part-time at Walmart for most of my college career. I was selected for an internship in graphic design at NVS Design the summer between my Junior and Senior year of college. After the internship, my company decided to keep me on as an independent contractor, which later turned into a full-time job.
Were you involved with any extra-curricular activities during college?
With working, interning and trying to maintain my honor roll grades, extra-curricular activities were pretty difficult. I did emerge myself in additional art and music classes as electives because I enjoyed them so much.
What is your #1 career tip you would like to share with college students?
Hard work and patience. You won’t go into your career making the money you want. You will make mistakes and you will learn from them. The key is to keep pushing yourself to do better and constantly work on improving yourself, only then will an employer really see value in you and with time you will get a better sense of self-worthy and better pay.
