Finding a Job

Jobs are listed on these websites: AIGA, Coroflot, and IDSA. All allow filtering for junior level positions and higher. The Division of Design also works in partnership with the UW Career & Internship Center to post design employment opportunities on Handshake.

Students and alums can create a free account on Handshake. Once you have an account, complete your profile and make it public. Uploading your resume and making it public as well will help with this. Be sure to include education/GPA, major(s), and graduation date.

Use the filters to help with searching for jobs. You may also use keywords such as "graphic design," "industrial design," and "interaction design." If you need assistance with Handshake, email

The Division of Design is delighted to be working with the UW Career & Internship Center because their services also include promoting the field of design to employers in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

We recommend these publications, which cover additional issues in seeking design employment:
Get a Design Job
