Internship Help for Art and Design Students and Recent Graduates

Share Article

Patricia Boman provides art and design students and recent graduates internship help during difficult economy.

Students and recent graduates looking for art or design internships can find personalized help through Art & Design Educational Advisors, LLC.

"In challenging economic times it can be much more difficult to find an internship. We can help," stated Patricia Boman, managing partner of Art & Design Educational Advisors, LLC.

"A good internship is essential to providing a student or recent graduate the valuable work experience they need--and hopefully a foot in the door," Boman said. "Some individuals benefit from more than one internship experience."

Following a review of a client's educational background, portfolio, skills and career goals, Boman works to arrange internship opportunities likely to provide a good experience for the client as well as for the company or organization providing the internship. Boman commented, "by offering an internship to someone at the beginning of their career, a company can add new energy, perspective and skills to their business."

"It is important, however, for those seeking internships to be realistic about their pay requirements in this economy," Boman advises. "Some excellent internship experiences may offer minimal or no compensation."

Boman also encourages students hoping for an internship this summer to get started now. "I expect a good amount of competition for fewer positions," she said.

While many colleges provide valuable career services to their students and alumni, not all have the resources to give in-depth, personalized guidance. "Our mission is to provide specialized, effective help to each individual with whom we work," stated Boman. "We are dedicated to the success of each of our clients."

Art & Design Educational Advisors, LLC is a for-profit firm that provides college admission advising and portfolio guidance for artists and designers in addition to career development services.

Patricia Boman is the founder and managing partner of Art & Design Educational Advisors. She has a BA from Hamline University, a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and a MFA from Yale University. More information about Art & Design Educational Advisors, LLC is available at
