Graphic Design Fieldwork
The Graphic Design fieldwork program at Algonquin College is proud to partner with creative agencies in Canada's National Capital Region and around the world. The goal of our fieldwork program is to initiate our students to the professional practice of graphic design in a safe, stimulating and productive workplace.
- Students work as designers at your place of business for a minimum of a 180 hours during the six-week period.
- The start date is March 18 until April 26, 2019.
- Students are expected to work similar hours as other employees.
- Students are expected to work as a member of a design team.
- We expect our students to honour the confidentiality of your business.
- Fieldwork can be salaried or not. That’s up to you and the student to negotiate.
What we need from you
- Perform a thorough interview of candidates.
- Submit a short online rating of the student's performance during that interview.
- Provide supervision during the fieldwork.
- Provide a productive and safe work environment for our students.
- Complete a short report on the student's performance during their fieldwork.
We recognize that hosting a student intern represents an added responsibility for your company. Our faculty is grateful to all of you who choose to ensure a healthy future for our industry by nurturing budding practitioners in the field of graphic design.
