The beauty of web development is that the skills can be immediately applied without the need for highly-specialized equipment or a formal business structure. This makes web development a perfect freelancing opportunity. As another option, Purdue University also has many openings each semester for students to utilize their new design and coding skills in an on-campus internship environment.
To illustrate this, I followed Purdue student Kendra Moyars around one day last week to record what her typical day looks like as a Development Intern with Purdue Marketing & Media. The video below captures what it’s like to be a student web developer.
