other ideas Internship for fine arts student?

I'm an art student with a major in fine arts. I have been looking around for internships as I wish to work for a high-end brand design company one day as an artist (big dreams). Is there any way to get an internship even though I'm in fine arts? Or is anything fitting besides boring museums(I love them still) or working for another artist? I want to aim high as I wish to get the most out of being an artist, as I have many ideas and things I want to achieve. what else is out there for fine arts students?

Hello, Mai !

You seem very ambitious and talented and ready to start a career ! I would like to offer some advice on steps you can take to work, but can't guide you on how your career will go.

Although you have set your standards high and know just what you want and don't want, my first advice would be to do your art freelance. List yourself as an artist in directories and trade websites. Offer your skills. Initially, you might get the most out of being an artist by doing your art and selling it as a product or service. It is my view that you would be getting the most out of being an artist by doing. Each piece you create is the artist experience and every time you conceptualize and produce something that is the definition of getting the most out of being an artist. You didn't really say what your definition is.

To work for a high end brand company, register on Linked In, Indeed and as many other employment websites that you can. Set notifications for what you are looking for. You will need an impressive portfolio (become familiar with the companies that are hiring). Keep in mind that art is an opinion based field of work, so networking and building contacts is vital. Find the art community where you live as well as on campus and get to know a lot of other artists. Attend all art shows and art events on campus. As you further your studies, you will learn about various careers for artists. I have left a link for you below to see some prospective careers you can obtain with a degree in fine arts. Explore more online.

I hope that this is helpful and I wish you all the best !

Start by building your network! A broad network can take you to great heights, so make sure to communicate with everyone. Attend exhibitions featuring various artists and consider places where luxury design company employees might hang out or spend their time. This way, you're not only expanding your connections, but also immersing yourself in the environment that fosters creativity and innovation. Keep going, you're on the right track!
