Intern at TriVision Studios
The glass doors swing open marking your “red carpet” entrance into the elaborate 12,000 square ft. studio that is called TriVision. Welcome to your new sanctuary.
For the next few months, this state-of-the art facility will serve as your home away from home. Don’t worry and never panic because luckily you are in good company.
Surrounded by a team of like-minded creative individuals who specialize in many areas including graphic design, video production, web development, photography, branding, marketing solutions and much more, as an intern, you are exposed to a multitude of interactive situations that involve split-second decision making with high standard end results. Think you can handle it?
The first few days start off calm and quiet, but that doesn’t mean you should get too comfortable (advice #1: NEVER get too comfortable).
After 20 years of being in business, TriVision is one of the most well-respected multimedia companies in the D.C. Metropolitan region.
So what does that mean for you as an intern?
It means you always have to give 110% in everything you do (yes, I really do mean 110%). Follow instructions and don’t be afraid to ask questions, use your time wisely, and most importantly be open to critique and suggestions.
And if you really want to stand out as an intern and make an impression on the big bosses, bring new ideas to the table. If they see that not only are you hardworking but you have that IT factor where you add value to their business, chances are they might offer you a full-time position at TriVision.
As an intern at TriVision, you might have a day that requires you to edit a video for 5 hours after completing an offsite shoot earlier that day. Or you might be asked to serve coffee to the client while resizing photos for a new website project. Being a TriVision intern means a lot of different things and the key is to always be willing to do everything with an open mind and positive attitude.
Just remember…once the emails begin to accumulate and the internal fans of your computer start making loud noises, that is when the real test begins.
