Hello everyone,

I'm new on this platform and I'm here to understand about the opportunities that might be available for the upcoming spring term.

I'm currently pursuing my masters in pace university, information systems. I have 14 months of experience in sales back in india and worked in the world's largest ed tech i.e Byju's the learning app. I'm looking for opportunities regarding sales and marketing internship. And can start working from January 2023.

Graduating with PhD in comp neuro next year. I just did a week long internship at MBB to check out consulting, which I loved but ultimately will not be accepting my offer for life considerations (my wife also works at MBB and we have young children). It was amazing getting a sense of what the work actually comprises.

Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data/analytical consulting? Would love to test it out for a little bit to check out other firms

Hello UX people, I need your thoughts here. A friend of mine has been in the market for a UX job for over a year. He's very green with only internship experience.

It feels incredibly unethical, but I'm wondering if this is standard practice at companies?
Thanks!
