[Swaetha]: It’s quite hard finding a Product Design Intern / UX Design Intern during university that is part-time, or during the middle of the year as most of the time it’s done between Nov — Jan. After getting ignored 😖 seen zoned 😥 ghosted 👻 by about 30 different companies, only 2 got back to me, only 1 actually interviewed me and I currently am a Product Design Intern @ Lyka woohoo🎉!! This is how I did it.
[Taryn]: There are a few places where you can find designations/hackathons/case competitions to compete. The first and arguably most well known is through your university societies i.e. SUEDE, DigiSoc etc. Others can include larger organisations or bootcamps such as Adobe Creative Jam, General Assembly, IxDA. If you’re feeling extra ambitious you could even have a go applying for international university designathons which are open internationally and work with diverse individuals and apply these soft skills in a new way.
