My Product Design Summer Experience at Facebook & Why I’m Headed Back:

gabeThis summer I interned at Facebook as a product designer. The best way to describe product design is with an analogy: If the engineers are like construction, product designers are like architects. I wasn’t necessarily building anything, but I was creating blueprints and writing specs to give to “construction.” My experience at Facebook was truly wild. The work I was doing was real and has a direct impact on millions of people. Not only was I working on my own project but I was free to jump in and offer feedback on any part of the product. It wasn’t all work however. They go to great lengths to make sure that their employees are having fun. One of the highlights for me was having the entire design staff take a day off and go to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk!  I’m excited to say that I’m going back next summer to join Facebook full-time!
