    Nice dude you have a lot of time to pivot what you want to do

    Just join a bunch of design related clubs and put in on your resume and make a portfolio and you should be good

    Or do hackathons and join as a ux designer

    Or just make your own projects in the meantime. Problem is it's kind of weird to put projects on ur resume.

    Also interns.design is a super nice website to find internships

    This is a pretty cool site that interviews designers:
    loversmagazine.com

    I have a lot of resources to share on this front, but don't really know where to begin.

    Decent site for an intro to everything: degreeless.design

    cool, definitely some great stuff in here

    especially love the lawsofux.com within the degreelessdesign website one cause they link articles

    but at the same time i feel like design is so aestheticized and all the articles and s*** just talk about effectively nothing

    For anyone interested and if you have the money and time, there are a few bootcamps/immersions out there you can enroll into to get an in-depth look at the field and what the job entails.
