My name is Nikolas Sonnenkalb, I live in Paderborn and am studying for a masters degree in “Interdisciplinary Media Studies” at the University of Bielefeld. I did my undergraduate studies in “Multimedia Production” at the University of Applied Sciences in Kiel – on the subjects taught there I was able to build up well in Bielefeld. The curriculum of this course of studies includes an internship with a minimum duration of six weeks, which I was offered to pass at the organisation NILAM. I came to know about this organisation through the Career Service of the University of Bielefeld. A list of companies can be found there which, among other things, provide internship opportunities.
Since my CV has so far been influenced by advertising, design, media and technology, I was struck by the internship offer titled “Intern video technology and media design”. A closer look at the job description further increased my interest, since the tasks also listed “postproduction of source videos, design of print materials and digital advertising elements, image selection and retouching”. Thanks to my school education in design at the technical college, my vocational training as an advertising technician and my bachelor’s degree in “Multimedia Production”, I was able to make these areas my own for years. Even in my private life I am dedicated to these topics, so that I am now well equipped as far as hardware and software and the knowledge about them are concerned, in order to be able to create corresponding contents.
