Design and Illustration

Ariane (Seymour) Baker

Design and illustration careers begin with a portfolio of client-based or self-inspired work that displays your talent, style, and creative thinking. While there are full-time positions in the field of design, there are fewer full-time opportunities for illustrators. For this reason, many illustrators work as designers and illustration is a part of their job.

“You will figure out your own path. Have the patience to define it for yourself.”

German Studies Department Internships in Dresden

Students with an effective command of German are encouraged to apply for one of three paid summer internships in Dresden. Students are required to work a minimum of 300 hours over 8-10 weeks.

    “There’s usually a job out there, somewhere, that combines the skills you've chosen to develop, and usually, over coffee with an old Wellesley friend, you'll figure out what that job is.”

    “I think art’s first goal is to remind us that we are human...”

    Performing Arts

    The four steps in this resource will help keep you focused and productive in your search. You should plan on revisiting each step as your knowledge and understanding of positions and industries grow. Each step below is outlined without a specific industry or position in mind. It is best to schedule an appointment with your Advisor for Career Exploration (ACE) or an Industry-specific Career Advisor to customize your process. The questions we have provided at each step are designed to help you reflect on your preparedness and identify what you may need to move forward in the process.

    English Department and Writing Program Internships

    The English Department and the Writing Program are happy to announce five sponsored internships for the summer of 2021. Internships, whether remote or in-person, run for 8-10-weeks, with a minimum of 300 hours in total, and will carry a stipend of $4,000. Students may apply for more than one internship, but should indicate their first choice. Completed applications will be due on Monday, March 15, 2021 by 11:30 P.M. EST (Boston time).

    Spanish Department Internships

    The Spanish Department is pleased to offer several internship opportunities to practice and continue exploring the Spanish and Hispanic languages and culture. For Summer 2021, the Spanish Department has confirmed virtual internships at El Observatorio Instituto Cervantes at Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) and el Museo de Arte de Ponce (Ponce, Puerto Rico).

    Due to the continuing pandemic, it is unclear whether the following opportunities will be offered this summer:

    • Asociación de parálisis cerebral y otras afecciones similares, (ACPACYS) (Córdoba, España)
    • Museo de Arte de Ponce (Ponce, Puerto Rico)
    • Universidad Internacional Menéndez y Pelayo (UIMP) (Santander, España)

    Wellesley has not determined whether it will resume funding in-person internships this summer; a decision is expected in April. Many organizations are also uncertain whether they are able to host this summer. If, at a later date, an internship at one of these organizations becomes possible, the Spanish Department and Career Education will advertise the opportunity and reopen the application for these sites. 

    The Gig Economy

    If full-time, permanent, salaried positions are difficult to find in the area you want to work (as is often the case in creative fields), gig work, freelancing, or a side hustle related to your interests could be a good way to gain experience and build your resume. Gig work can also be a path to meeting life’s practical obligations while honing your craft or perusing creative goals.
