Big fan here 👋 & Should I post questions here?

Love design details 😊. Contents are helpful and great companions for young professions who are new to this industry. Highly recommend 🥳 !

Currently, I am focused on finding an Internship/Junior product/UX designer opportunities while learning continuously. I believe in "learning by doing". Two main questions:

My interest is products for education/architecture. Considering my background, it seems hard for me to even get a practice opportunity. Considering gain experience asap is vital for now, should I look at any possible practice opportunity instead of focusing on my interest?

I have applied to many firms including large corporations/design agencies. (mostly internships) I find it is hard to get HR's attention to my website. (I checked my website stats constantly) I assumed they ignored me instantly after browsing my resume (background as an architectural designer/without HCI related degrees) Is there any advice you could think of to solve this issue?

BTW, do we have design details community?
