Intern Spotlight: Isabella Gonzalez
Isabella Gonzalez is from Caruthers, California. She is a graphic design student at Fresno State and is planning to graduate in the Spring of 2022. Isabella is currently a student assistant at OCED and assists the graphic designer with graphics, flyers, and logos to help aid other divisions, including Parent University.
Why did you choose to intern at OCED?
I wanted to sharpen my skills as a designer, earn experience within my field of study, and work with a company I was already familiar with, my school.
What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not interning or at school?
My favorite thing to do is relax at home and watch movies.
What advice would you give to students who are seeking internships or are indecisive about doing one?
I say take it. Whether paid or not, it's an excellent resource to gain experience in your field of study and, in return, employers are likely to hire someone with some experience over someone with no experience. It’s also an opportunity to grow within the company, build relationships by networking and gain recognition and future projects based on your work there.
How has your experience at OCED been like so far?
I really love the time I spend working on creating logos either for OCED or clients. The people at OCED are lovely, they are friendly and I feel my artistic self when I’m working here.
