Our recent Adobe Test Fest has concluded, with several Adobe certifications issued during the weekend event. Also, we have a winner in our highest score contest! Samantha Navarro, a master’s student in Design and Innovation, scored an excellent score of 950 on her Visual design using Photoshop exam to earn the $100 Amazon gift card! Samantha was excited to take advantage of our availability of Adobe exams.
“I started learning Photoshop on my own when I was thirteen and have been hooked ever since,” Samantha said after her exam session. “I had no idea that Adobe offers certifications, so when I saw that OIT would provide free testing I jumped on it. To another creative, your portfolio will often speak for itself, but to someone like an HR representative, certifications can provide hard evidence of your credentials. I researched the exams and decided to start with the program most familiar to me: Photoshop. While brushing up on my skills, I learned a bunch of helpful tips and new tools that I am excited to try out; it was honestly really fun to study for. ”
Samantha also plans to take the Adobe Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and After Effects certifications in the future. Congrats again to Samantha on her achievement!
