What you actually do
If you want to develop yourself in the area of interaction design for physical products or user interfaces, convince us of your skills and maybe you will be the next interaction design intern of the largest design agency in The Netherlands!
Each semester, VanBerlo looks for an enthusiastic Interaction Design student who wants to gain experience in a variety of user interface projects. At VanBerlo user interface projects are almost always tied in with physical products. For example, embedded interfaces and mobile apps that are connected to physical products.
Applications for Spring - Summer 2018 have now closed, applications for Autumn - Winter 2019 (or later) are now open. VanBerlo only takes on trainees in the form of “experience traineeships". We do not take on trainees with their own projects, or those looking to work on a final thesis project.

To qualify for an internship position at VanBerlo you have to be registered as a student in the EU or UK. You are preferably following a degree in the area of Interaction Design, Digital Communication or Product Design with a specialization in Interaction Design / Design for Interaction.
Additionally, you have to qualify for a selection for these criteria:
- You are skilled in visualizing concepts and ideas with Adobe CS/CC
- You have a good sense for design and styling
- You think in workflows and you can construct an interface in wireframes
- You can prototype interactive services, software and physical products
- For you the end-user is most important and you are familiar with design research methods

- You have an affinity for product design
We’ve got lots to offer
- Challenging projects at the forefront of innovation
