Oh hey there

We're a group of students and faculty from Stanford who are creating a new way for you to work with us this summer. Here's the scoop:

For Companies & Organizations.

Design Summer is where you can share your most sticky, hairy, complex challenges and give students up to 12 weeks to help you make progress. Once you post a project, you'll be able to connect with and vet the student(s) who best fit the challenge. There’s no cost to you except to compensate the students for their time (hourly, stipend, etc) and the rate is up to you.

Our students have not only been studying design & problem solving in all forms, but they’re also part of a new pilot program focused on strengthening their abilities in storytelling, self-awareness, career navigation, and community building.

It takes less than 2 minutes to post a summer project and you can post as many you'd like.

Post a Project

For Undergrads.

We know that COVID-19 has introduced a lot of uncertainty to all of us. For students, the summer could be a big part of that uncertainty. How do you make meaning out of your summer? Will internships be virtual? How do you navigate finding an internship or a summer project in these crazy times?

If you have any of these questions, you're in the right place. In response to COVID-19, Design Summer is pivoting from full-fledged class to a 1-hr virtual workshop and a "portal" with a growing list of open jobs/internships from alums. We're hoping to include and support as many students as who are interested in creating a meaningful summer.

Here you will learn:

+ How to build (or rebuild) your resume and LinkedIn

+ How to interview well

+ How to reflect on your path and plan what's next with confidence

You'll also gain access to an exclusive project portal with specific summer jobs/insternships for Design Summer students.
