The Adaptive Path internship program is a great opportunity for current or recent design students to get a taste of what it’s like to work at a design firm and get some experience under their belt. And to hang out with Stanley (a very affectionate Chihuahua mix). Our interns work on current projects, internal projects, and sometimes get to travel to far off lands, from San Antonio, Texas to Seoul, Korea. Last year they even helped us brew beer in the studio.
While we know our interns will learn a lot from us, we also expect to learn from them. We look for students who can translate their current education and methods into the work they do for us. Other things we look for include:
- Familiarity with the human-centered design process, from research to ideation to execution
- Exceptional skill and craft in an area of design practice (e.g., visual communication, UI design, illustration, industrial design, interaction design)
- Confidence collaborating with other people and articulating ideas
- Passion for doing great design work and empathy for people
If this sounds like you, please apply!
We are looking for current and recent undergraduate and graduate students to work in our San Francisco studio. We are particularly interested in people who focus in the following areas.
- Visual design
- Interaction design
- Service design
Send resumes and portfolios along with why you’d make a great addition to our team to internships AT adaptivepath DOT com by March 1, 2014. Please include “Summer intern−[YOUR DESIGN FOCUS]” in the subject line. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by March 31. Internships will begin in the beginning of June.
Internships last 10 weeks and are open to current students or those who have completed a degree during 2013. This position requires you to work in our San Francisco studio Monday through Friday during regular business hours.
Interns will be assigned to project teams and will work alongside project leads, program managers and practitioners on client-facing projects. Interns may also participate in Adaptive Path research and development projects. All interns are paired with an Adaptive Path staff member who will serve as their advocate and mentor within the organization.
Compensation is commensurate with experience.
Housing is not provided, but we will provide housing guidance. Past interns have had success subleasing spaces and using Airbnb.
