    Art internship Interview! Ah!

    Hey guys! I've got a phone interview for an art internship at a local games studio. I'm super nervous, and I just wanted to ask if any of you have ever done an art internship? What kind of questions did you encounter?

    **Edit: and how long should I be prepared for the interview to last?

    At the very least, make sure you have some questions to ask yourself!

    "Are you happy to work full hours without pay for as long as we want you to?"
    That's generally the subtext for all unpaid internships.

    @gtm1260 Just asked simple things like why I was interested in the company, what I was looking to get out of it and stuff like that. It was a lot easier than I thought haha.

    Also @Benedikt It's a three month internship. He said a lot of the interns end up being employees but I realize that's not guaranteed. I'll never know until I try I guess, it's a big step for me so I'm excited regardless.

    Yeah, I was being a bit provocative intentionally. It's not like that's the case for every internship with every company. It's just what I usually hear. There are companies who operate (almost) whole departments with interns. Of course, the output quality is pretty bad in those cases, but they're usually in market segments where that is normal(browsergames and such).

    No problem! I figured you were just being sassy hehe
    I'm hopeful it won't be like that but hey, it'll be an experience either way!
    BTW I took a loot at your work, it's really beautiful.
