    Im a senior graphic design student and am applying for pre-press internships. Any particular skills I should know before starting the first day? or even before the interview?

    you should know all your basic design stuff off hand. the difference between CMYK, and RGB, the difference between vector and raster. You should know what file formats are used for what purposes and why. You should know how to color correct using many a different methods. ummmm, you should probably know how to scan stuff too and have a full understanding of bleeds, trim, etc. of course this all varies on if what kind of pre-press job your applying for (ie: Kinko's, or your local full scale print house)

            this was probably done in a signware rather than illustrator. The sign making softwares out there handle making an extrusion like that far better than Illustrator.
