So You’ve Bought web development internship work from home … Now What?
- April 06, 2022
For most of our lives the internet is something that we don’t think to much about. Once we get past the initial shock of it, we start to become more familiar with it.
This is because the internet is so vast. It can literally cover most every inch of our world. We get to see everything from our Facebook feeds, to our Twitter friends, to our Instagram photos, and from there we can follow our favourite web designers to see what they are up to.
With that said, it can also be a lot of work. You have to learn new skills, work out new systems, learn new formats, and so on. One of the most helpful places to get a feel for the internet is through our internships. Some of our internships are very hands on, others are more academic. Either way, they are all very helpful for us to learn new skills, and can help us get a feel for the internet.
Our internship program is in San Francisco, and we are part of the creative team for the San Francisco Design Festival. Not only that, but we have the chance to do some exciting internships with companies like Instagram, Tumblr, and Tumblr.com. The best part about the internships is that you don’t get paid for your time, but you do get experience that you can take to work for a company later.
It’s great. We are a team of five. Each of us has a day job that gives us a paycheck. Our day job is to do web development. We work on the intern websites for the festival as well as the intern websites for our companies.
The intern websites we’re working on are things like Instagram, Tumblr, and Tumblr.com. We’re also working on a Tumblr site for another company. The intern websites give us experience and a chance to put ourselves to work and learn the ropes.
The intern websites are great, but they can be a good deal of work. There are a lot of sites to make, you have to pay for the domain, set up a server, manage the design, build the back end, set up a user-friendly web interface that is easy to use, etc. If you are not an experienced web developer, you need to be able to find time to do the intern websites.
Most of us spend a lot of our time in front of a computer, learning the skills necessary to be productive. For web development, we’re not interested in the same skills that we are interested in in other areas of life, such as reading, writing, or even math. We want to be able to write blog posts, build sites, build applications, etc.
The problem is that most of the web development jobs just suck. I mean who can really say that you are a web developer if you can’t even build an application. That’s why I’m not sure it’s worth it. It’s not that you are not good at what you do, but that you are just bad at it and you need to learn a new skill or two to get good at it.
