How do you define successful experience?
Curious to your answers to this question. Is it experience where you
learned a lot? Where stakeholders were happy? Where projects were
completed on time?
As younger designers hone their skills, what kind of experience should
they try for in order to have successful experience?

In the context of the job announcement sent, it is the application of their
design to solve a business problem, which resulted in both user and
stakeholder satisfaction for a web site or application.
There are a lot of valuable experiences in solutions that are failures also.
Both are valuable to an entry-level designer, especially if they are able to
understand the causes of the success and/or the failure.
I believe the best way for an entry-level designer to have successful
experiences is to be flexible, explorative, and try finding a good mentor.
