My name is Nadya Audrey Salim, and I’m studying Human-Computer Interaction at UC San Diego. This summer I had the opportunity to work at Eventerprise as a UX intern.
During my first month at Eventerprise, I worked on a couple of big projects. I also developed new skills that will surely be useful for me in the future. Some of the skills that I gained includes learning how to use tools like Figma, Basecamp, and LuckyOrange heat map, none of which I had never used before.
One of my big projects was redesigning the event listing pages, which consists of four different web pages. Every project that I worked on was done step-by-step, from evaluating the current design pain points, conducting a competitive analysis, sketching with pen and paper, to creating a mockup using Figma.
Some of the other tasks that I did on a weekly basis included analysing the Eventerprise website using the LuckyOrange heat map and compiling UX test reports.
Although it was a short internship, I learned how to keep up with a fast-paced work environment like Eventerprise, while keeping the quality of my work as the priority. The weekly UX test report task taught me that being detailed orientated is imperative in order to identify flaws.
My takeaway from my EventerCamp internship is that continuously analysing and figuring out a better way to present information to the user is the key to success. After all, what’s important is not only the visual aspect of a site, the experience that our users get from interacting with our platform is the main target.
