There are so many “big steps” you have to take in your first couple of years of business and for us, one was to hire an intern. While we’ve been talking about it for almost a year now, we’ve had a lot of concerns. What if we aren’t prepared to add someone to our team? What if they don’t fit in? A couple of months ago we started putting our feelers out and set up a meeting with Kaitlin who is currently getting her Bachelor’s degree through Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) for Graphic Design. After we met Kaitlin, all of our concerns disappeared! Kaitlin is friendly, smart, professional and her design skills are on point. Most importantly, we could instantly tell that she has a passion for the people and organizations behind each project: the clients.
Read on to learn a little more about Kaitlin through a little Q&A we did with her. We think she’s awesome, and we know you will too!
