From Zomato To Google, New York: Here's How I Designed My Career Through Internships

April 06, 2018

I’m a self-taught designer. As I entered college, I started working on creating designs and joined freelance sites like Warrior Forum, Fiverr etc. It was the summer of 2014, and I got an internship at Zomato. 


Over the course of the summer, I not only worked on the responsive web design, but also did the Android and iOS design for the tour, login-signup flow, walkthroughs, feed, and profile.

I spent the winter of 2014 as the product designer intern at a startup called Zo Rooms and designed their website and iOS and Android apps. I applied for the summer UX design internship program at Google. I was selected.

My work consisted of creating prototypes and mocks after thorough user research and testing. I got to experience how a huge company operates and how the employees are managed in the best possible way.

My career was designed by internships. I understood the real essence of empathy and the way I saw life changed. The things you learn while working with different teams solving different problems for different people stay with you forever.
