Hello Peter,

I am an undergraduate student entering into my junior year of college. I am majoring in political science but am considering tacking on either a minor in studio art or minor in graphics design. While I would enjoy studio work and think that it’ll be an enriching experience, I am wondering if I’ll be better off going the graphics route so that I will have something relevant to show off to the advertising firm I plan to apply for an internship at during the next summer. Which would you recommend? Does it really matter?

Furthermore, I am wondering if I should make a creative twist on my resume in order to set myself apart from the rest of the grovelers begging to intern. I am proficient enough in adobe design programs  that I can create a little fun and colorful pamphlet or package for myself. Should I get a little ballsy and do that, or will I just make myself seem annoying?
