Depending on your internship, certain computer programs will be crucial to your experience, (at Fashionista it’s WordPress!) so get to know them before you apply. It will ultimately add to your appeal when looking at potential hires. Tom Handley, Parsons’ Twitter-savvy PR and marketing professor, shared his list: Photoshop, Illustrator, Quickbooks, iMovie or Final Cut, and Excel. He considers Excel the top priority.
In addition to those, have a good working knowledge of all the social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare and Tumblr.
Moral of the story: Go ahead and play on Pinterest, but you better be able to make a mean infographic, too.
