Is your company looking for an intern?

1 year ago from

Disclaimer: Thought I'd give this a shot, and I apologize in advance if this is not allowed or breaks any rules.

I'm curious if any of you or the companies you work for are looking for an intern (summer is almost over, but fall is just around the corner!)? I've become slightly demotivated over the past few months as I've received little to no feedback/response from internships I've applied to, so I'm trying my luck on DN. I'm a (junior level?) designer with a focus on digital product design, currently studying at Sacramento State in California. I'd love the opportunity to work alongside a creative team and build something special.

Again–just curious to see what's out there! Thanks for your time.

Best, Cameron hello@cjgetty.com

    I am a student myself, but I think you should post a link to your portfolio as well. This will help people to get an idea of what you do best.

    All the best :)

      From their website: "My portfolio is currently under construction."

        Thanks, Ken! Yeah, I'm doing a little overhaul at the moment.

          Maybe try again when you have it ready, it's hard to give someone a chance when they don't have any way of showing previous work. If not a website aleast some way of displaying your work via slides, PDF, printed?

            I have a PDF portfolio I've put together when sending out applications and resumes. I suppose I should have included it in the post, although some of the work doesn't reflect where I'm trying to position myself career-wise.

              My 2 cents if you are going for a UI design internship position: if you know what you want, it’s better to have one UI project, than to have five illustrations, two logo’s and a website you designed.

              Post your work here, get feedback, improve and try again!

                Thanks, Xavier! That pretty much aligns with all of the “how to land your first design job” medium articles I’ve read, haha.

                I’ve been working on 1-2 personal user experience projects just to have something to showcase. I’ve got a few barebones UI shots on Dribbble at http://dribbble.com/cjgetty

                Thanks for the advice!

                  Well, Medium has a lot of bad advice, all I can tell you is that this is how I have judged portfolios over the past six years. In this case, the hype is real ;-)
