Recent Merchandise Product Development Graduate Radhika Parsana, who previously studied biotechnology in India, already has a job as a design and trend researcher at Avery Dennison, a global leader in pressure-sensitive label technology serving the global markets for food, beverage/beer, wine, home and personal care products.
"FIDM has groomed me for the industry. Having a background in biotechnology, excelling in an extremely competitive fashion industry was challenging. The international student advisor helped me understand and navigate the international laws for my internships," explains Radhika, who interned at Kellwood and Sue Wong while studying at FIDM.
"It is exciting to have found my calling and work with a wonderful organization that invests in my growth and exposes me to high-impact projects. All of this would not have been possible without the support of the FIDM faculty and Career Center. They have motivated me at every step and all I had to do was give my best and leave the rest up to FIDM."
