NMA INTERNSHIP

This NMA Internship course is designed to provide real-world, supervised work experience with mentorship by a professional in the field, enabling students to apply the knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom to the work environment.

Internships are invaluable. Students get real world experience and exposure to the local industry and local companies get to work closely with NMA students and consider them as potential future hires. Ideal internships consist of a professional environment with creative projects with guided mentorship. Students are expected to be mature, reliable, strong communicators, and good team players. Several NMA internships have turned into full-time job offers.

REQUIRED INTERNSHIP DOCUMENTS

**You may begin working as soon as you complete the Animators Required Internship Docs (Industry Handout, Student Study Plan & Contract, and the Release of Risk & liability form) and submit as Wk 5 Laulima Assignment. As Animatiors, I have began one for you since you guys will be working directly with a KCC faculty and I have been informed ahead of time. DOWNLOAD IT HERE and complete the rest of it along with proper signatures.

––––––––––––––––––– TIPS/NOTES ––––––––––––––––––
The Industry Handout, ONLY EMPLOYER FILLS OUT and DIGITALLY or HAND SIGNS. You should give them this when you interview especially if they're not familiar with our program. If they have any questions encourage them to contact me. I'll verify with them that they meet the criteria prior to you starting your internship by calling or emailing them to discuss your position, as necessary (some I may already have on file, so I may waive this if that is the case.

Student Study Plan and Contract: WITH THE HELP OF YOUR SUPERVISOR, thoroughly FILL OUT and BOTH OF YOU, DIGITALLY or HAND SIGN the contract. I will review it upon receipt and contact either you or the employer if I have any questions.

1ST-TIME INTERFACE INTERNS

DRAFT PORTFOLIO

 
Gather and Mock Work. Go through all of your work and begin to gather the original files to all the pieces you would like to include in your portfolio. I suggest mocking them up in Photoshop using free Mockup Comps to make your work look photorealistic and as refined as possible. For pieces like your books or magazine for which you may already have pictures for, you may use those pictures instead.

• Once your work is mocked up, begin designing a draft of your Portoflio using InDesign and use the comps as the images you display in your portfolio. This is an example the InDesign Portfolio Template , so that you can see how it is layed out/organized, but you will want to modify and design your own layout and typography. Save your original InDesign file so you can continue editing but you will not turn this in to me. Alternatively you may wish to design and code a website portfolio instead. E.g. www.YourName.com/art293/portfoliodraft/index.html

When finished with your Portfolio Draft, Export a high quality print PDF and submit in Week 2 Laulima Assignment. Naming File Accordingly: ​YourNamePortfolio_Draft.pdf. If you are creating a Website Portfolio, please upload it to your course site and provide me with the direct address to your internship portfolio website. E.g. www.YourName.com/art112/YourNamePortfolio_Draft.pdf

Former Student PDF Portfolio Examples: Anne | Guiqing | Frank | Lianne
Former Student Website Portfolio Example: Rachel | Hyela Lee

DONT WANT TO MAKE PREPARE PORTFOLIO?

  If you don't want to prepare a portfolio because you've already landed an internship without one, then just make sure to make tell me that in the text box of Week 2 Laulima Assignment.

MAKING EDITS TO LAST SEMESTER'S MATERIALS

•  To your Porftolio: I suggest adding any of last semester's course work and internship location's work worthy of inclusion. To your Resume: I suggest editing any new contact info and adding previous internship locations and any new employment, experience or software skill you may have gained in the past semester.


TURN-IN: FINAL RESUME, COVER LETTER, & PORTFOLIO.


  Name and Turn them in as noted in the "1st-Time ID Interns" Section.

  Write down how many hours you actually spend on revisions of your materials in the text box of your Wk 3 Laulima Assignment. THE MAX "EDITING" HOURS for Resume, Cover Letter and Portfolio are 10 hours total, and that amount time for revisions must be evident in your work for them to count.

Note:
That total number will be subtracted from the required 160 service work hours you need to complete internship. For Example: If you edit your work for 10 hours, you will only be required to work 150 service hours instead of 160 hours on your Contract. If you only complete 7 hours of editing then you will need to work 153 hours of internship, instead, and so on and so forth.

DONT WANT TO MAKE REVISIONS?

Notice of Ending Hourse to Employers. CC ME!!


If you are approaching the end of your required service hours for internship, like you only have 20 hours left or so, (and have not already done so in a previous week), please inform your supervising agent via email and CC me in that email that you are approaching the end of your hours, so I know to send off your Intern Supervisor Evaluation to them and get it back in time for grading. ** I will advise them that they should also discuss your evaluation with you prior to your completing your internship and prior to returning your evaluation it to me. Then, TYPE IN YOUR Week 12: Laulima Assignment, that you have sent off your email so I know to keep an eye out for it.

EXAMPLE EMAIL:

"Hi Bob,

Per our discussion at work today, I just wanted to remind you and formally notify you in writing that Tuesday, November 29, 2016 will be my last day at the office as that is when I will complete my 140 hours as stated in my contract. I want to thank you and the entire staff at Empowered Internet Solutions for allowing me to intern under your direction and supervision.
