Graphic Design Interns learn the fundamentals of operating in a cabinet-level agency while reaching out to nearly 21 million Veterans and their family members with important information about compensation, health care, education and other benefits. Graphic Design Interns plan, design, develop, modify, and complete visual information projects for web-based visual media products to communicate with Veterans, their family members and the public on matters affecting their daily lives from health care and insurance to monetary compensation and suicide prevention. Graphic Design interns contribute in diverse ways to VA content such as through producing graphics for special projects such as A Veteran’s Story and the Veteran of the Day graphics, and editing photos published on the VA’s Instagram channel.
