Visual Communications Grad Featured on Gap Career Blog
Visual Communications Graduate and creative specialist at Gap Inc. Rachel Arthurs is featured in a Q&A on the Gap Inc. Career Blog. Rachel, who started her career as a visual associate at the Athleta flagship store in Corte Madera, California, went on to intern at Gap Inc.’s headquarters in San Francisco. Nearly a year later, she has a full-time gig at Gap Inc. headquarters in San Francisco where she helps manage social media and a global careers site.
Rachel says, "At FIDM, most of our assignments were centered around project management, which is an invaluable skill to have, regardless of your industry. It forces you to be adaptable; teaches you to ruthlessly prioritize. This really helped during my time at Athleta when we were constantly working to meet visual layout deadlines. No matter how crazy it was to flip the store (e.g., merchandising the store with new product for each season) in three days, we always got it done, and we always made it happen."
