I just sent an unsolicited application to IDEO for an internship position at their New York office. (Fellow engineers might remember them from Gateway Lab as the people who redesigned a shopping cart.) They don’t have any current openings listed on their website, which I’ve bookmarked and checked daily since the summer, but I finally mustered up the courage to shoot them an email anyway. I spent a good part of yesterday and today crafting my cover letter and updating my résumé, so cross your fingers in hopes that they contact me back.
In other news, I’m taking the GRE tomorrow. Yikes.
