Graphic Design graduate
Last year at this time, I made the decision to change my career and enter a Graphic Design program. I researched 6 different Colleges that offered Graphic Design, but Herzing was the only school that met all my requirements. The school had easy access by public transportation (Eaton Centre, down town), reasonable and competitive tuition costs and by far not the most expensive, current and relevant software training in the Adobe Suite of applications that are being used in the Graphic Design industry and most importantly, knowledgeable and friendly staff.
I found the work so motivating that I dived into it, keeping busy with projects that occupied my time usually 6 days a week. It honestly never felt like work as the weeks and month flew by and I ended up with a rather extensive portfolio for my efforts.
It was this portfolio that lead to one of the added advantages of the Herzing Graphic Design Program which was the ability to enjoy an 80 hour internship in a company related to the field. To my joy, I was fortunate to land an internship in Edmonton, Alberta, where I will be working for a company developing new and innovative 3D film techniques. My hard work is paying off in spades but I doubt my long hour work days are over quite yet, for which I am also thankful!
All the Teachers and Administrative staff at Herzing College have been more than generous with their help and assistance, providing me with everything I needed to have a successful year and a rewarding future career. I would highly recommend the Herzing Graphic Design program to anyone wishing to upgrade their current software skills or a change of career. Thanks to all the staff for a fabulous year!
