Cardinal Career Launch: Student Highlight

Katie McGraw, Class of 2022

Career Launch:

Right after graduation, Katie accepted a position as a news designer at NewsNation Network following her graphic design internship there.

The North Central College Advantage:

“Both the design and marketing departments provided more opportunities than I can count that apply to my career now. To be specific, North Central’s Student Design Agency prepared me for quick turnarounds and equipped me with client communication skills needed for my industry. Being a part of the College’s American Marketing Association Case Competition Team developed my creative problem-solving skills and was also a great talking point during interviews.

“The mentorship from my professors helped me discover some of the internships and jobs I secured that prepared me for my current job. They also provided me with tips on how to not get burnt out, which is essential to know in any creative industry.”
