College students gain work experience
Monday, May 4, 2015 — Students with digital graphic design and other programs at Lassen Community College are gaining hands-on experience.
The work experience program at the local colleges offers students a chance to receive credit by working in a field related to the one they wish to pursue, or other positions to give them working experience.
According to Lori Collier, digital graphic design program coordinator, students in her program are able to apply lessons they learn in the classroom to jobs within the community.
“(It’s an) absolutely fabulous program for them because they learn real on-the-job experience of working with clients, other staff members and having a real supervisor and boss and meeting real deadlines,” said Collier.Add a comment
