Designing your design internship

Do your research beforehand to come prepared

Set and measure your goals

Communication and feedback

Schedule coffee chats ☕️

  • Be mindful of the other person’s time, sometimes I’ll schedule a 15 min coffee chat instead of 30 min. After all, follow-up coffee chats are always a thing.
  • Pay attention to them. Seriously, it’s so obvious to tell when someone’s eyes are darting all over the screen.
  • As creepy as this sounds, Google them! You may find something of common interest between the two of you, which can spark interesting conversations
  • Have a topic in mind just in case things get quiet. Maybe it’s an interesting podcast or video, any cool hobbies you might have, or interesting places you’ve traveled to (something I always love to hear about!).
