Without question, the skills I gained through the iMedia program got me the job at NASCAR. Elon helped me advance beyond senior manager to senior director. The network I established was incredibly helpful. I would not be here without the degree.

Gain a solid foundation

Coming into iMedia, I had limited coding experience and no formal knowledge of user experience. The program was completely transformative and I gained extremely valuable front-end development and interactive design skills. I remember browsing jobs and naming this exact position as my dream job. It never would have been possible without the skills I gained in iMedia.

Having the opportunity to talk about my experience working on digital marketing for a nonprofit company in another country really changes the way employers view my ability to think globally.

When potential employers learned that I earned my master’s degree in interactive media and was well-versed in multiple skill sets in addition to video production, my resume rose to the top of the list.

My professors challenged my thoughts and helped me evolve my ideas into something feasible and impressive. Those ideas were then fed with industry news, technologies and new software discoveries, helping me to better communicate my capstone in a digital experience that was on par with modern design, development and production standards.

Access industry-standard software and equipment

What really stood out to me about Elon’s interactive media program was the access to all the tools that I needed to succeed. I had a large range of cameras, audio equipment, software, hardware and editing studio space at my disposal. There was always someone on staff to answer any question or offer recommendation on how to best complete my project. This was incredibly useful when I wasn’t sure how I was going to bring my idea to life.
