Although I can't publicly disclose the details of my time at NVIDIA, I had an amazing experience interning in a close-knit, collaborative design team. Read about my experience below!
April 2022 - July 2022
I interned on the NGC Cloud Team as a User Experience Design Intern for 12 weeks during the summer of 2022. I was integrated onto a team of designers doing amazing work defining the design and user research culture at NVIDIA.
This was the first time I had access to a team of designers who could critique my work on a regular basis, and this was definitely one of the most valuable experiences of my internship. Not only did I gain the privilege of frequent feedback on my work, but witnessing how other designers critiqued each other gave me insight into how I can offer feedback to others and look at my own work from a different lens.
One of my biggest challenges was trying to feeling connected with my team given its remote nature. Being my first time on a design team, it took a while for me to feel comfortable speaking up during team-wide meetings and contributing the input I had to offer. Being in an actual workplace taught me skills that I would have to work on, and I'm now a lot more conscious about being proactive and contributing to design meetings with managers and stakeholders.
My NVIDIA projects were massive in relation to my previous experiences, and due to my limited time at the company, they had a life before and after me. The projects had been in the hands of many people, and being onboarded and orienting myself was a challenge in and of itself. I learned how to consolidate different decisions and iterations from different designers, as well as the value of exploring as many viable directions as possible.
