During my time here, I was faced with real-world challenges, and working with a team of designers and developers opened my eyes on how to plan and tackle issues straight on. This internship is well-rounded. Outside of development, I’ve improved my documentation, I got experience working remotely during COVID-19, I was able to participate in onboarding and hiring processes, and so much more. I am leaving this opportunity with a better understanding of creating a better user experience, and with irreplaceable knowledge that I will take with me into my next opportunity.”

I was given an opportunity to produce something tangible on a daily basis to execute marketing plans. I was challenged to make improvements to daily processes and to take an existing project from “in process” to being shared on Twitter. I was included in the hiring process for two other interns, allowing me to pay it forward and mentor two other people that were in my exact situation.

“From the beginning, it was one of the most intense application processes I had or have been through—and well worth it. In fact, every application and interview process since has seemed a breeze in comparison. In my time with UIE, I learned many skills; I mastered the “Dark Arts” of the HTML email; I sat in and participated in usability tests of the new AYCL website, followed by KJ Method sessions; and I was introduced to the wonders of true responsive design, Twitter Bootstrap, Git, and best practices such as clean, slim CSS and the use of HTML entities at all times. The entire team helped me refocus my developed skills from other talents into tools for UX and UI. The whole gang at UIE does such a tremendous job of developing a real feeling of family that it’s a hard place to leave. However, I am happy to say that I’ve been able to pay it forward by utilizing my gained knowledge to enhance the processes and tool sets of every agency, company, or small creative boutique I have worked for since. I consider myself the winner of a lottery.”

2012 Interns

Hannah Moore Fall 2012 #

Front End Engineer Current: Verndale
“UIE was a great place for me to start out. I am still very appreciative that they took a chance on me when I was just starting out. I really enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere at UIE and the fact that there was a general focus on researching industry best standards. One time I got to sit in on a usability test and afterwards we all brainstormed on it using the KJ method with tons of post-its. It was cool to get to be part of that. I also got to reconstruct a website as part of a court case. Since the website no longer existed I had to use the wayback machine to figure out what it used to look like, so it was a mixture of web development and detective work, which was a lot of fun. I learned a lot working at UIE (Git, Basecamp and WordPress among other things) and since leaving they have been extremely helpful with recommendations and references for new jobs.”
