I noticed there weren’t much talks about internships, so I’d really like to start a post and hear out other people’s experiences.
I thought it would be interesting to hear out from some of you who already have been through your internships (assuming you have). Where did you go, what did you do? And would you do anything differently or emphasize anything for anyone doing their first internship?
I am making this post because this August, I am starting my first internship as a UX’er at a Design company here in Denmark.
Right now, I am feeling very excited and nervous. I think because I am a student and this is my first UX chance out “in the real world”, I can’t help look at this as a way to get recognized and validated as a designer But I’d much rather want my head to focus on learning, making mistakes and accepting mistakes is going to happen.
These are my thoughts. What were yours before you started, and after you’d finished?
