Working at Dining Services has been a blast. I feel so honored that I got the chance to work here, even as a part-time non-student hourly, I felt like I fit in and that everyone is easy to talk to and discuss projects with. This job helped me understand office pace and what is expected of me when working with a deadline in mind. Plus, a big shout out to Jessica that made sure that tasks never felt intimidating and was always there to help me figure out my task list. She keeps this office running and I am so thankful for her guidance along the way. I grew as a designer at this job and will always be grateful for having the chance to work here.

This job gave me more opportunities than I can count! I was able to work with other creative and talented people and was able to learn new skills in the video industry at an alarming rate. Overall, a really good steppingstone to launch you into your professional career.

Working with UNT Dining Services as a Videographer has been extremely rewarding. This job has served as a solid stepping stone in my career and has opened my eyes to all the unique paths I could take. Also, my managers and team members have been nothing but supportive and helpful.

I really enjoyed my time working at DS Creative and have learned a lot about becoming a more professional designer and working in an office setting. I’m thankful and happy to meet and work with everyone here.

Michelle K.
Graphic Designer

Working for DS Creative opened my eyes to the world of food services in a university setting. I learned and grew so much in my two years working alongside the communication and creative team. Everyone here is so kind, thoughtful and willing to help you advance in whatever skill you seek out. Through this team’s guidance, I feel as though I became a more creative and innovative person. I highly recommend working here.

I enjoyed my time at DS Creative and I learned so much from working there! It helped me gain technical and interpersonal skills that helped ease my transition to work as a full-time designer. I loved working on large-scale projects and being able to see my work out in public. It felt so rewarding to be in a Retail location or Dining Hall and think, “Hey, I made that!” Everyone in the office is so friendly. It makes working a lot easier, and you don’t feel afraid to ask questions once you get comfortable.

You don’t get looked down upon by the full-timers (as a student would at some jobs) and you’re treated like an equal and with respect. You can talk with your coworkers, listen to music, etc. as long as work is still getting done. Questions and open communication are encouraged, so if there is something going on professionally or personally you can talk to any of the full-timers and they will try to help you. This is probably one of the best work environments I’ve been in. This job was fun and really contributed to the college experience.

Andres G.

I really loved becoming part of the welcoming community of the office, and I have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated my time with the Dining Services creative team. This has been, by far, the most positive job experience I’ve had so far, and I have learned so much about being a designer in the real world vs. in the classroom where every project should strive to be award-winning. This was much more realistic and provided important context to my educational and career journey. I’ll miss being here while I’m preoccupied with classes, but I plan to keep in touch and hope to work with y’all again in the future. Thank you for a great summer!

Working as a student at UNT Dining taught me professional skills outside of what I was learning in the classroom. This helped me stand out amongst recent graduates in my field, as well as getting the chance to work with great people who are there to support you along your professional journey.

Lee R.
Graphic Designer

Design at Dining Marketing gave me a huge leg up on my career goals. Working as a Student Designer allowed me to gain practical design studio skills with a flexible schedule and delicious subject matter. At Dining Marketing, I was mentored through the sides of a design career you don’t learn in the classroom — the “real life” experience. Gaining speed, skill, and studio workflow experience helped me to secure internships and be successful in them. Skills I first picked up here have been valued at every team I’ve been on since. Working on a small but involved team, I had the opportunity to work on everything from photography and signage to animation and ice sculptures. Dining Marketing was a rewarding start to my design career, and prepared me well for my next steps.
