New ways to learn. More options to create and get empowered.

Over 40 percent of postings on the Career Services site ask for competency in Adobe Creative Suite. If you don’t have skills in Premiere, InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop (the most requested software) you are missing out on opportunities.

The design team will give you an opportunity to solve multiple client challenges using Adobe software – InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator. You can also work on Premiere projects. You will get a chance to learn some new features and tricks in Creative Cloud and maximize it for ultimate creativity. You will also get a look at new Cloud products – Adobe Experience Design (creates app prototyping) and Adobe Dimension (creates 3-D mockups).

NO experience necessary. Everyone works at their own level and speed.

There are three teams open: 3 pm Monday, 2 pm Tuesday, 3 pm Wednesday.
