    Life changing program

    I can’t say enough about career jumpstart. Upon starting, I was immediately met with warm welcomed from everyone in the program. Modules are clearly laid out and you get to jump right into real client work! On top of gaining real world experience working on products, you get the experience of working with other designers , PM’s, etc. Whenever I needed a second pair of eyes or ears , someone was readily available. They helped me with interview prep,portfolio prep/feedback, and mentorship....

    Sets you up for success, but job hunting can be tough!

    After completing the Avocademy bootcamp, I signed up for Career Jumpstart which is really a must have when switching careers to UX Design. I signed up in January 2022, completed two projects, then started job hunting (I also completed another project a month later while job hunting). It took me a little over 6 months to find a job. They certainly have tons of mentor support for interviewing and recently increased the mentors availability which was great, but it's still a tough market. Wh...

    Good Place to Start...

    I joined the Avocademy UX/UI Design Bootcamp. As an educator seeking to change careers, I really thought I would be able to build a portfolio by the end of the course, receive mentorship, and get a job. They are relatively new BootCamp. I had to take breaks due to current work stress and did not complete the program in the timeline. Once I finally got back on track, the curriculum shifted and changed. A different struggle is that you are not placed with a consistent mentor. Mentors are p...

    UX/UI Student

    I had a great experience learning with the Career Jumpstart program. The course material was very well oriented and the mentorship was helpful. This program is great for giving real life design experience with clients, which is not like many other courses. I came from a graphic design background, so having this course really helped me to understand more about user experience so that I can make my designs more intentional for users. I would recommend this course for anyone that wants to g...

    Career Jumpstart

    I could not be more grateful to Maca and the rest of the team for creating this course+career jumpstart. I was incredibly prepared from the work I’ve done and landed such an amazing job that ties into what I want to accomplish as a UX and UI Designer and I would not have been able to do it without their help!

    Ux/Ui Design

    I finished UX foundations and for the price of the boot camp I think it’s well worth it. The mentors are very hands on, you can talk to them through zoom or even in a regular DM. I had one mentor help me through DM around 9pm which I didn’t expect! It just shows that they actually care and actually want to help you. I would say that the course is very heavy with reading, a lot of it is articles so it could be a little more challenging for students with other learning styles but there are...

    UX/UI Foundations Program

    The quick answer is do it! Enroll in the program, is totally worth it! Now the context: I have been a graphic for the past 10 years and ventured intro web design 4 years ago. I recently moved to the US and decided it was time to transition from freelancer to employee. When searching for jobs I had to know code to apply for web design roles. While searching for jobs I noticed there were so many opportunities for UX/UI. I thought I could apply for one of those jobs, since I had a lot of ex...

    UX/UI Foundations Program

    I genuinely do not regret my decision joining Avocademy to learn UX/UI design. If you want to learn about UX/UI design as well as gain experience in what it is like working in this field, I'd seriously recommend this program. Just to give a little background, I had literally no experience in UX/UI design and became interested in it after a friend of mine recommended me to look into this program. Best decision ever! This program gives you the resources needed to do well in this field. Not...
