    This course has not been what I expected. Neither the tutoring nor mentoring has met expectations, and the course content hasn't been anything special either. 

    I haven't enjoyed using the platform either. The chat function is frustrating and audio functionality for the text is poor.

    Since March 29th, 2021 I opted in for a UX design course in CareerFoundry I have found it absolutely amazing. I love the structure of the course - they are well detailed and easy to understand. However, my Mentor and Tutor guiding me through this program have been helpful. They are intelligent, experienced, and time conscious to correcting of course tasks. I would recommend careerFoundry to prospective students irrespective of the choice of program. Moreover, the opportunity of supporting students to achieve his/her dream job. That means if you're unemployed and you are looking for an educative platform that will make your dream come through- CareerFoundry is the best for YOU!

    Very supportive and helpful. Responses are very fast, most of time within 48 hours. Need a little spontaneous studying to use some software which they do but cover in the curriculum but Mentor always helps a lot. Very recommend to all of you who are interested in UX Design.

    This course is so well structured. With every task, you learn new skills in order to start slowly building your understanding of UX. It's so easy to follow and great if you are a beginner. The consistent feedback from a tutor also really helps! Would recommend it for anyone looking to delve into the world of UX!!

    I'm nearly finished with my CareerFoundry Intro to Data Analytics course. It's been a great exploration of the fundamentals of conducting a descriptive analysis, and using Excel. The quality of feedback from my tutor has been incredible, and I've loved the relevant, contemporary examples used in the curriculum.

    Pros:
    - Website: Ok
    - Service: Helpful and quick reply. But when about job related? Sadly not good due to different local market
    - Slack community: Met some interesting fellows

    Cons:
    - Curriculum: Not good enough to get a junior position. Video explanation? The instruction is too plain / strong accent - hardly to understand sometimes. Too much writing and quite confusing sometimes.
    - Job preparation: Too strict and too American way. Can't help much to get job locally.
    - Job guarantee: Possible, if you are willing to start unpaid internship or earning super mega low salary (not enough monthly living)

    Suggestion: Do free online source - as employers don't ask for certificate at the end. If someone want to do a course at Careerfoundry, they should do UX/UI course - they are very good for this. But not other courses.

    The best part of the UX Design Program with CareerFoundry (and what made me choose them), is that you can choose your own pace. You have a deadline, true, but it´s established doing the minimum weekly hours of study. 

    Also important is that you spend all the time during your program working on practical projects. So yes, there is a lot to read and digest,  but putting everything automatically into practice makes it much more dynamic. Not only that, you are building your portfolio from the very first day.

    They offer support through a Tutor and a Mentor during the whole Program, which is amazing to avoid the feeling of being "alone" the whole way. They can answer your questions and give you a hand when you get stuck. The only thing to mention here is that I have seen different kinds or levels of support and commitment between Tutors/Mentors of different students. This human difference can create as well a big difference in the experience that each student has through the program. However, the Bootcamp has an Advisor Team that is available for issues like this.

    The overall experience for a person that has no previous knowledge in the field is quite positive. Sometimes the content of each lesson could be polished to be more consistent in between the different steps of the lessons, or even through the progress of the personal project, but I am aware that they are constantly improving it.

    A more than positive experience!     

      

Thanks!
