Frequently asked questions
Everything you need to know about how it works.
Do I get to choose who I work with?
Absolutely! You’ll get a list of interested candidates and you’ll be able to pick one for your project.
What kind of design or product management help do the students provide?
For product design, the students are well-versed in everything in the product design lifecycle, from identifying the right problem to solve (customer interviews, competitive analysis, gathering inspirations), to finding the right solution (brainstorming ideas, prioritizing features, wireframing, user testing, branding, and high-fidelity design and prototypes).

For product management, the students are well-versed in setting the strategy, creating the roadmap, gathering requirements from customers, writing PRDs, and managing the sprint and backlog while working with designers and developers to ship the product.
Can I submit an unpaid project?
You have full control over this. Our founders have submitted unpaid and paid projects in the past.
What happens after the 4-8 week project ends?
You can decide to continue working with the student, or create a new project on Basil.
What is expected of me during or after the project?
We ask that you treat the student/new grad with respect and help them achieve their career goal as much as possible. We’d appreciate it if you can help promote the student’s work on social media (eg. Linkedin) after the successful completion of the project, but that is not required.
