    Foundations & Career Jumpstart

    I couldn't recommend Avocademy enough! I tell my spouse at least once a week (or more) about how happy I am to have signed up with this program.

    I chose Avocademy because it was an affordable UX bootcamp for me and the services they offered (especially the one-on-one mentorship) was unbeatable. From the resources, content, and feedback I received, I learned so much! The mentors are nice, approachable, and gave great feedback/advice. Before moving onto the next assignment, your wor...

    Product Design Intern

    Avocademy has easily been a top 5 life decision thus far! During my senior year of college, I was still lost until I came across Avocademy, they saw my strengths and explained to me how I could utilize them as a designer. Completing the course was smooth and I felt like everything I needed to know as a beginner was there and easy to digest. The mentoring is top-notch and the student-specific feedback is one of the best features of the course. A year later, I secured a paid internship as ...

    Associate Product Designer

    CJ has helped me gain real client experience, that I probably would not have gotten if I had gone the freelance route. All of the mentors are truly there for all of their students to help them successfully transition into the UX field and offer guidance even when you have landed a job! I’ve never heard that from other bootcamps.

    CJ helped me land my first UX role!

    So I just finished the job search part of Career Jumpstart or CJ at Avocademy. The overall process was fun, difficult at times, and such an amazing process overall. It's broken down into two parts: projects and job search.

    Projects
    So for this part they post projects for people to submit for and then connect you with other grads from Foundations on projects with real world stakeholders. You work as a team to complete projects to finish out your portfolio and so...

    Great program!

    Found this bootcamp through TikTok, and after doing some of my own research, I decided to go for it and I'm so glad I did! You learn so much in the foundations course, and end up with a great project at the end. There are great resources in the course, and access to mentors during the entire course. I am currently in Avocademy's Career Jumpstart program working towards completing my portfolio and can't wait to start applying to jobs!

    Best course I could ask for

    I have taken courses in the past, and they all fell flat. I always felt like I was missing some part of the education and couldn't really bring the skills I learned into a real job. With Avocademy, I have never felt more supported or prepared to find a job, and most importantly, feel like I will do well in the job. The mentors are amazing, and being able to get real client experience before you start applying has been essential to creating the confidence I need.

    My experience with Avocademy was more than amazing.  The step by step process, detailed explanations and unlimited mentorship was by far the best part about the program.  Anyone looking to get into UX/UI design, I recommend Avocademy 1000%. The program is affordable, down to earth mentors and a great space to also network!

    Career Jumpstart

    Great program. Currently in my senior year of college as well as this program and was able to land a job 6 weeks before my college graduation. Worked on 3 projects over about a 4-6 month period with real clients as a UX designer with a team of other designers. This was combined with constant mentorship, design, portfolio and resume reviews, and they helped me redesign projects that I had completed at other UX design internships/jobs. Very lenient with me being in college and not being ab...

    Overall, an amazing and positive experience with Avocademy and joining Career Jumpstart (CJ) afterwards. I don't think I would be able to land a job without CJ! The mentors are absolutely so helpful and Maca is incredible for providing the job support you are looking for. I love the CJ course because I had the opportunity to work on MULTIPLE real client work and in a team setting which helped continually build my UX/UI skills AND soft skills. Additionally, the CJ course offers mock inter...
