2018 SUMMER INTERNSHIP
Your goal – to improve the education process and better the lives of students through interning in User Experience (UX) Design.
Organization: Product – UX Design
The User Experience team lives within Chegg’s Product organization. The UX Research Team is part of the larger UX Group. We partner with Chegg’s Product Management, Engineering and Marketing organizations to do research that informs great user experiences.
Role: UX Research Internship
We do UX Research differently at Chegg! Instead of working by yourself or jumping from project to project, you’ll be an embedded member of one of our product groups. Working directly with your Research leader and using a variety of methodologies, you’ll plan, execute, evaluate and share insights from your UX Research. You’ll work to optimize our customer’s experience and turn insights into engaging, actionable recommendations that make a difference for our customers.
