Advice needed on finding design work, remote or in Europe
5 Mar 2008 - 2:50pm
Does anyone have any advice on finding remote (interaction) design work
or/and a design internship somewhere in Europe (ideally Finland or Sweden)
for the summer?
I've been living in Finland for the last year and a half, doing 2 different
internships, both kind of development oriented. Then I tried to make the
switch back to a design position, but it's not as easy as I had hoped (I
guess partly because I don't speak Finnish and I can only apply with
international companies, partly because I don't have enough formal design
experience) I came close a couple of times, but not close enough.
Now it's getting a bit too late (or too early) for me to find a permanent
position, because I'm hoping to get into a Interaction Design Master's
program and if I manage that it might not be a good idea to be tied to one
place when autumn comes.
Ofcourse, I might be wrong in my guesses, so any advice is welcome.
