Job Shadow Description
Our San Jose oﬃce primarily focuses on designing workplaces for tech companies in the Silicon Valley. Workplace projects not only include the actual work space (oﬃces and workstations) but also include amenities such as cafeterias, ﬁtness centers, spas, brieﬁng centers, stores and other employee spaces.
The students would shadow one of our professionals while they meet with other team members to discuss design problems, attend team meetings, attend an all hands meeting, attend an oﬃce design charette and maybe even try their hand at a small design problem.
We would also show them the diﬀerent technologies that we use to design our projects.
