How I got the job: Abigail Heyd, Sculpture Senior

VCU News recently did a story on seniors and recent graduates who landed great jobs and internships. Representing VCUarts is Abby Heyd, a senior in the Sculpture + Extended Media department.

“Universal was really impressed with the variety of my experience at school,” Heyd said. “That really speaks to VCU’s program, everything from welding to basic construction to sewing. Because I was comfortable in a workshop with chemicals and power tools, Universal was able to put me in these settings and I knew what was going on.”

Heyd worked in the props warehouse on props, sculptures and objects that will be featured in queue lines for different attractions, including the new Jimmy Fallon and Fast and Furious rides. She also had a chance to work with the designers who created Harry Potter World.
