Since 2015, Toneyes has been actively recruiting young and talented individuals through their graphic design Internship program. In the early days of the Agency, they understood the importance of training the upcoming generation of designers to pave the way forward in the design industry. Our vision for the graphic design internship program focuses on the concept of the “Why?”, “What?”, and “How?”. The answers are simple:
The above answers set the foundation and build up our code of conduct for our graphic design internship program. A successful internship program is building a safe and respectful place for growth and learning. With this, motivation, creativity, and new ideas will fall into place.
Training interns is no simple task. Therefore, our recruitment program focuses on bringing in quality interns that show the motivation and skill set needed to thrive in the working environment. After accepting a new intern into our program, the introduction phase starts off by enhancing the foundations of their own knowledge and eventually strengthens their confidence to initiate a smooth transition into the team. We give our interns the same respect that we give our other employees to build trust within the team and practice to become independent thinkers.
Having a graphic design internship program can bring many benefits to both sides.
On one end, interns gain an immense amount of industry experience that begins the foundation of their career, while still providing them with a controlled environment to learn with supervision. Successful candidates are also likely to receive a job opportunity at the end of the internship, which brings additional motive to do well and succeed.
Whereas, on the other hand, the agency receives the insights and ideas of young, talented individuals that can bring new perspectives that can showcase in your projects. Bringing motivation to the team to collaborate on interesting ideas and produce quality outcomes. Additionally, graphic design internships generate endless amounts of marketing opportunities. Whether it be, working on a new showreel for that year, generating social media content, or conceptualizing new product ideas for your agency. These are just a select few of the kinds of projects that can boost production and engagement with your clientele and within the team while also giving your interns the freedom they need to be creative and the training they need to elevate their skillset.
Internship programs construct a solid model as a recruitment process. It gives assurances of the quality and performance outcomes after hiring. More so, the inputs and ideas that the upcoming generation can offer in the creative industry is a plus for generating new and interesting concepts for project development. With no doubt, hiring young individuals with a sense of ambition and drive can bring a new source of energy to your company and will showcase into the work that is produced.
