Clemson undergrad Meghan Foley talks about her future after graduation

Published on May 6, 2010

Hi.  I'm Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here with Meghan Foley who is an undergrad student at Clemson in Graphic Communications.  Welcome.

Meghan Foley:  Thank you.

Cary Sherburne:  So, tell me a little bit about what are some of the things that you're learning at Clemson in the program and what drew you to the industry.

Meghan Foley:  Well, I actually started as a Biology major.  So I switched.

Cary Sherburne:  Oh, my goodness.

Meghan Foley:  Yeah.  I switched into Graphic Communications.  What initially attracted me to it is that it doesn't just focus on the graphic design aspect, but it takes a step further and we gets hands-on training on printing presses.  So we take it from the design to pre-press.  We actually get to print it and finish and bind it.  So we learn everything and I think it prepares us better than any other graphic design program for the industry.

Cary Sherburne:  And then when you -- how much time do you have left in prison, so to speak?

Meghan Foley:  I'll graduate next May, 2010.

Cary Sherburne:  So, what do you plan to do?  I mean, obviously you're going to try to find a job, but do you want to do to a printer, do you want to be with an agency, a design firm?  What are you looking for?

Meghan Foley:  I enjoy writing and marketing.  So either something in public relations or I have actually considered law school and I could tie that into my undergrad degree with intellectual property rights.  I could go into the copywriting of design and stuff like that.

Cary Sherburne:  Plus also in litigation they're using a lot of large format displays and animated reenactments of things.  So there's a lot of linkage actually to that.

Meghan Foley:  Yeah.

Cary Sherburne:  So, I'm a writer, too.  So I encourage you to build up your writing skills.  I mean, it's great.

Meghan Foley:  I've got a writing internship at Heidelberg this summer.

Cary Sherburne:  Oh, congratulations.

Meghan Foley:  I'm really looking forward to that.

Cary Sherburne:  Yeah.

Meghan Foley:  With PR and writing.

Cary Sherburne:  So May of 2010 and if anyone is looking to hire you after that they can contact WhatTheyThink and we'll put them in touch with you.

Meghan Foley:  Awesome.

Cary Sherburne:  Okay.  Thank you Meghan.

Meghan Foley:  Thank you for having me.
