    I wanted to take a UX course that has flexible learning options, industry-practicing instructors, and has a robust curriculum and BrainStation ticked all the boxes. I was very pleased with their LMS and other tools which allowed for seamless communication with the instructor, the learner support team, and my fellow classmates.

    I especially loved the interactive workshops we did each class. It allowed me to better understand the material and collaborating with groups and partners enabled us to learn from each other. Our instructor, Han, was especially helpful during studio times when we would work on our final project. She facilitated a safe, inclusive space for the students to show our progress, which allowed us to get a fresh perspective on our projects and improve on it. I've never experienced such a supportive learning environment! I'm definitely taking the Digital Marketing course next and I'm looking forward to it.

The class had so much detail that I wish I would have taken the  longer course. Anyone that is considering Brainstation to further your knowledge its a must have.  For your set up make sure you have 2 monitor to get the full experience of all the applications that are taught. I enjoy the experience and well worth it. Thanks Brainstation!!!

    I have to preface this by saying that before joining the Bootcamp I had a myriad of jobs, many of which were technical in nature. With a background in engineering, I feel I did have an advantage when it came to understanding and comprehension of the more technical aspects of the program compared to those with completely unrelated experiences. I found the content straightforward and detailed, with sufficient information and instruction to complete the curriculum. This is not to say it was easy, I had to commit full time each day and night to ensure I absorbed the material and completed each assignment. You get out exactly what you put into it and you really need to expect to commit 100% of your life for 3 months to this program. 

    Having completed the program nearly a year later, looking back I can confidently say that the curriculum was very frontend focused, and the backend portion was more of a knowledge base than put to practice. It's understandable that in 3 months to attempt to teach a full diploma's worth of content is a great undertaking, but if the program claims emphasis on Full-Stack development, there should be more meat than potatoes (if the metaphor sticks lol). Alongside the coursework were various hackathons and pair-programming events which were very valuable experiences in my opinion. Allowing us to experience the social aspect of the work, especially over the pandemic, enhances learning and understanding. These challenges allowed us to connect with our colleagues and collaboratively improve our skills. I learned a lot through how others were programming and I can say with certainty that they improved my skills.

    When it came down to finding a job, it really is on you as a person to put in the work until you are actually hired, if you don't keep that momentum going when you finish the program you will struggle. BrainStation does provide the necessary tools to gear up for the hunt and interviews but there are no guarantees that you will find work immediately. I will say the most important job assistance aspect is networking; connect with your peers and build bridges, they are key as you will be the next group in the industry. Unfortunately, BrainStation's ability to provide quality networking was dampened due to the pandemic, so being unable to carry out live in-person demonstrations impacts the ability to speak 1-on-1 with potential industry representatives and employers.

    To conclude, if you're considering this program and have some technical background then BrainStation can definitely give you the base ingredients to be a developer. However, it will be more challenging for those who have completely unrelated backgrounds and I strongly suggest getting some base understanding before deciding to commit. I loved my time at BrainStation and I am greatly appreciative of the skills learned, the connections made, and how they helped shape my future.

    A very quick deep-dive on all the major digital elements: SEO, SEM, Google Analytics data, content marketing, social media marketing, and email marketing. This online course was taught live by a working industry professional, who included wonderful examples of their work and how certain aspects of digital marketing applied with real world examples.
    As comprehensive as it can be, considering each of the pillars mentioned above was a three hour lecture. A great way to learn basics, expand your digital marketing brain, and learn jargon, if you are unfamiliar with it.
    The final project is a great portfolio piece or worth using to show to your management team or client. 

    Definitely has changed how I see the digital landscape.

    This bootcamp was a fantastic way to gain exposure to the modeling and technical skills currently expected in the industry. Although I didn't immediately start in data science after I finished the bootcamp, even in my corporate finance position I was able to leverage my new skills to improve processes and run more complex analyses (I effectively became a better Financial Analyst). 

    ~One year out, I now have a job as a Data Scientist, which would have been MUCH harder to land without this bootcamp.

    While BrainStation will provide you with relevant information and plenty of opportunities for practice, it is really important to take the lectures and assignments seriously (don't just go through the motions) and continue developing your skills on the job / in your free time. A lot of becoming stronger at coding / modeling is simply practice, so if you are able to apply what you've learned in the bootcamp (and practice a lot), you can be successful in the data science field. 

    BrainStation was also a cool way to meet a lot of professionals from diverse backgrounds!

    After yet another terrible job experience I decided to take the leap without more thought, and it was the best decision I ever took. I found excellent instructors and staff that go above and beyond to make sure I got the most out of my class. They and my classmates became an important support system for my journey. The course itself is intense, "bootcamp" is really a great term for it, it was not easy, if you want to succeed is better just to forget about anything else for those three months, specially if you come from a no coding whatsoever background like me. It is a lot of work but definitely worth it, specially surrounded by an amazing team of people and classmates. After graduation I continue to get career support, advise and have biweekly meetings to check on my progress.

    I am happy to say that a month after graduating I have accepted a job offer in development at the company I wanted and with a much better salary.

    Alright so I took the Digital Marketing program in late 2020. 

    I have to honestly say that the curriculum that is being taught really helps you to develop strong instincts on what you are doing professionally.  This is coming from an individual who has always been skeptical of schools that specialize in tech training only because there is such an abundance of information that is available at your fingertips either for free or for a cheaper price (in comparison to paying for a full-time program).

    The foundation that this program builds for an individual learning the ropes of digital marketing is truly un-matched in my opinion.  When I first took the program, I felt that I was coming to this program with a decent amount of knowledge about digital marketing.  During the process of going through the program, I learned that my initial knowledge was really just scratching the surface of developing my knowledge in Digital Marketing.  At the end of the program, I developed a capstone project (along with a series of other projects) that I am truly proud of (and proudly highlight in my LinkedIn profile), I felt challenged in a way that helped me grow significantly as a professional, and I am now a part of an amazing online community that extends beyond my graduation.

    Aside from the academics portion of my journey with BrainStation, I also have to give tons of credit of my superb experience to the Career Success team.  There is nothing short of a plethora of support from BrainStation after you graduate.  Ultimately they want to see you succeed as long as you are willing to put in the work.  Follow their advice down to the punctuation mark when it comes to the job search as it is good advice and they stay very current with job application best practices.  The online community that they have built is one of the BEST that I have ever come across.  

    In my opinion, this program is best suited for individuals that already have some professional marketing experience, for individuals that have a Bachelors+ degree from university, or individuals that have a successful independent project (like a small business) to showcase their digital marketing skills.  Although the program helps you to develop those independent projects to show off on your own, I found that graduates who were finding the most success after graduation were already working as marketers or had a Bachelor degree to speak of; meaning that employers are still looking for that classic experience + mainstream education mix along with proven digital skills.  This observation comes from my own personal experience as well since I was one of those students that didn't get hired immediately after graduation.

    They also do an amazing job at recommending students for jobs as well and I was able to land a couple of interviews directly from their recommendations which has never happened to me with other colleges.

    For those that are looking to make a career change that do not have traditional professional marketing experience or a Bachelors+ degree, understand that this program will deliver a great overview of the different roles that Digital Marketing can offer.  But also understand that BrainStation may just be the initial step to get you where you want to go.  You'll have access to a stellar community during/after graduation, and you'll have plenty of projects to showcase, but you'll need to mentally prepare yourself for a longer job-search process because ultimately a recruiter will recognize that your lack of professional experience is still a lack of professional experience no matter which way you try to spin it if you are someone trying to make a sudden career change.

    At the end of the day, I actually highly recommend BrainStation for individuals that want to add technical skills to their skillsets from a reputable school.   The academics that you learn is relevant to the profession you are pursuing and the community you end up accessing is such a godsend when you are out in the real world practicing your new-found skills.

    Just finished my first 5 weeks and I dont regret taking cyber security with brainstation. Enrollment was a breeze, any question I had was usually answered before end of day, which is great.  The instructors are very knowledgeable and love what they do. I feel very confident gaining great knowledge and skills in just 5 weeks, I can t imagine how I will feel in a year. 

Thanks!
