Webcredible is excited to welcome its newest user experience intern, Ian Wang. We’ve supported the industry in the past by offering students an opportunity to see what it’s like working in user experience, but it’s about time we widened the net. Ian, we hope, will be the first of many.
Ian is studying for an MSc (his second) in human-centred systems at City Uni. As part of his 2 year degree he is spending 6 months with us learning the ins and outs of user experience design, and working on his dissertation. With another degree in industrial design and 4 years working for Acer in Taiwan, we hope Ian will teach us a thing or two as well.
Like any busy digital agency we’ve thrown him in the deep-end. In his first month Ian has taken part in a workshop with UCA (University of the Creative Arts), been on a number of our training courses, worked on prototyping a website and conducted user testing. Here’s Ians thoughts on his time with us so far…
“I feel like I’m being taken seriously, I’m not just running errands. On my first day I was in Farnham on a client project. It’s great to have responsibility and get a feel for what it’s like working in UX”
Ian is also keeping a Pinterest board updated with photos of his internship.
To be considered for an internship at Webcredible you don’t have to have three MA’s. Just send us your CV and cover letter and you might be a UX intern sooner than you think.
