My Contributions
Over the summer, I designed on Jobs on Facebook team. Our team's goal is simple but difficult: Help people get jobs. While I can't disclose the details of my project, on a high level, I worked on defining the people problem, ideating different design solutions, doing usability testing, figuring out the engineering constraints and feasibility, and aligned with the cross-functional team on design direction.
Major Takeaways
This summer has been definitely the most memorable one in my design career. Over just 3 months, I grew so much as a person, designer, and a teammate. The experience was remote due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but I had so much fun despite the lack of in-person interaction.

1. Cross-functional conversation allows me to determine the proper scope of the project. Especially when the problem space is complex, a regular conversation with your partners allows you to stay in the right direction. It also allows you to receive feedback early and move quickly through the problem space. Cross-functional alignment is also the key to delivering a successful experience in a short time.

2. It is integral for a designer to alway sembrace a learner's mindsetand keep seeking feedback.

3. Over-communicate. As many workplaces move towards remote settings, it is better to over-communicate than less. It allows the team to be aware of what you are working on and seeking help early in the phase allows the whole team to move quickly.
