Summary of Internship

As an intern for Hudson Integrated, I am an additional help to the Creative Director, Chris Blinstrub, who guides me through the work that I am assigned to complete. Every Thursday morning, I go to the office in Saddle Brook, NJ, and look at my email and an online tool called Trello, that keeps the tasks I have to finish organized. There is a new task assigned for me to do every Thursday, which makes every internship day more fun and interesting since I am not stuck with doing the same projects each time. Some days, I am given an image or an example of part of a website to recreate with coding. Other days, I am given content, photos, CTAs, FAQs, and other fixes that need to be updated for a clientís live or developing website. Also, not only can I work with coding programs, but with design programs, as well, such as Photoshop. With each project, I am able to gain more knowledge and experience with certain types of coding elements that every website incorporates and operates on. Testing a website for mistakes, formatting issues, and other bugs that can occur on a website has also helped me understand more on what causes the problem and how to find a solution for it. Through meetings and questions, my mentorís generous and helpful attitude have also made my internship a lot easier and a great environment for learning. Because of this internship, I was able to explore my passion and put it into practice in a professional based setting.
