During a workshop on design thinking, I explored the theme: school-to-work transition.
Summary of the interview with a recent graduate:
- She thinks it would be better to confront with real projects, at school.
- She feels that three-month internship will not be enough to fill the gaps and to get to know.
- She need to do practice to understand what she likes and get in contact with the world she is interested to.
- She feels that it is too late to make a specific school for what she likes.
- The practice helps to test their passions and eliminate wrong knowledge.
- The practice needs a long period of time and specialized schools. For those who have already finished their studies, the schools are too demanding.
After a series of interviews I have identified this problem statement:
"A student who is beginning his university course, who has an idea of what he likes, but he does not know fully his attitudes and his passions, he needs a way to quickly test and put into practice the theoretical teachings. Because the practice helps to understand the applications of the theory and facilitates the emergence of deep passions."
