    I am nearing the end of my UX Design course. What a wild ride, but I haven't been alone. Careerfoundry gives many resources for students to recieve help if they need. That includes a Slack community, tutor, mentor, and student advisors. 

    Along the way it has been hard at times, but the layout of the course is easy to follow. It let's you know what pace you are at and gives you some freedom. It consists of reading a chapter and doing a project at the end. So you will be learning a lot of hands on skills.

    My mentor and tutor have been outstanding and role models. Cameron and Jayneil, thank you so much for your hard work. It is up to the student to schedule calls and follow up if they need help. So you need to be some what of a self starter. I usually am a lazy guy and I was able to do it. So don't give up.

    It took a long time to pick a boot camp but I am glad I chose Careerfoundry. The website was the first one I found when randomly researching UX bootcamps. The price was right in the middle and it influenced my decision greatly. Luckily they did a good job at selling the program. I have yet to do my specialization program at the end of the Immersion course, but I know it will be a good experience. 

    If you aren't sure what bootcamp to decide I suggest Careerfoundry. The job guarantee sells itself really. What do you have to lose? Stop hesitating like I did and take a leap!

    Thank you Careerfoundry.

    I have been on this course for 8 months and I don't normally write reviews, but CF has been really supportive and the course structure has been really good. They are fast at responding and just having a mentor is invaluable. The course has great feedback from the tutors as well, but just having that support from the mentor really helps to talk through anything that you don't understand. The information is in bite-size chunks and you really get a good understand straight from the beginning. I'm also thinking about studying further with the UI design course.

    I have completed the full-time UX design course with CareerFoundry and I am really satisfied with the course, the teaching methodology, the organizational structure (tutor, mentor, student advisors). They have the best layout, structure as well as content.
    I am doing my Job preparation course right now and to my surprise, on this part as well the content is very well structured with a lot of support and resources. I have a very good mentor, who really goes beyond to help me out whenever and wherever I need apart from the well-structured material available on careerfoundry site itself.

    I will give a 5-star review and would like to pursue other courses with CareerFoundry to enhance my skill sets.

    As a career changer from HR to UI/UX it was important for me to choose the right course that will guide me throughout the journey to gain solid understanding of the subject, design a lot and build a portfolio that will inspire potential employers. I am very close to finishing my course and every single day I have been growing my knowledge and design skills with lots of joy. I feel in great hands with very experienced and respectable tutor and mentors dedicated to me. They have always been there for me, for any doubt I have, giving me valuable feedback and lots of encouragement. I enjoy that we also do video calls which make it personal as well! I feel extremely happy studying with CareerFoundry. I read the course with joy as it's written in a very understandable, simple and even fun way. Are you a TOTAL beginner like me? then this is just the perfect guidance, really. I feel I have been learning so much and really build a great portfolio that I can't wait to share when I start applying for jobs. Another thing I find great is the Community at CareerFoundry with other UI/UX, Web development, Data Analyst and more students, currently studying or already graduated. We can give and receive feedback on our work, which is absolutely great and sooo valuable! In these times in 2020 it's more difficult to go places and be very social spending time with others, but since I am doing this course, I gained two study buddies that became my co-work buddies and great friends at the same time. We learn from eachother, network and have a  breakfast, dinner or a good cup of coffee together as well. Once again, I feel in great hands at CareerFoundry and I would love to help others and recommend who want to change their career or expand their knowledge in one of these fields.

    "Designer" title is already an attractive word for your CV hangs down. That means that you may be able to help in making a difference. But if you want to move from being desirable to be required all you need is to enrich the communication with the whole team, and that means the development team too. I am about to finish my course with Career Foundry (CF)and I couldn´t be happier with the decision I made by choosing it. Now that I have met the bowels of development is not that I will be expert building things by my own but I am ready to take to next level any product with my team as I know how far we can go. Talking the same language is way far important. Even though I have been able to create my own portfolio from scratch, I have learnt HTML, CSS, an introduction of JS and much more things I didn´t expect to learn but CF is really professional covering whole skills of the student and they know how important soft skills are in the professional field. I can say they don´t miss any detail. I would either add I feel quite lucky having the tutor I have, it is really important you connect well with your tutor so they can push you to go further and CF ensure you have such a connection to double-check you are taking the most of your programme.

    More than worth having done the course. A very good overview of all topics and with the practical relevance - excellent. Tutor and mentor have always helped very well. I never thought that the online would work so well. Since I haven't been looking for a job for so long, I can't say too much here yet. But maybe it won't be that easy in times of Corona. But overall never regret having taken the course and aiming for a job change.

    Prior joining Career Foundry (CF), I thought I don't need such a course to enter tech industry. With my 10 years experience, I thought my knowledge, skills, professionalism would be enough to switch from Brand Designer to UI/UX. But, after hitting the rejected by more than 100 different tech companies, I decided to join CF. That stage alone wasn't easy because there are so many online/offline course for UI/UX Design Program. 

    During the program you will have your own Tutor and Mentor where they will monitoring, giving you insights and feedback to support and make sure your work is meeting industry standard. 

    I know for some of you and including myself at first, "giving an emotional support, positive thoughts and blablabla, it's such a cliche notion that nobody affected and leading to toxic positivity".  But, believe me, I'm a skeptical, bitter and self-driven person turns out really appreciate the emotional support that I didn't believe I would need such a support from all of them. The staff even sending email to me and making sure how I'm with the progress.

    One thing maybe that could improve is the payment format for the tuition fee. For some of us, 3,5K euros could be hard to pay, maybe there is an option to have an installment format that we could monthly pay, but it's just an idea. I'm pretty sure the back office have thorough discussion about this. 

    Anyway, I guess that is all from me, I know it's a long review, it's just showing how I'm fully satisfied with the program and thanks to them, my mindset and skills are expanding and now I got a job because of CF team and the career specialist that keep pushing me. Shout out to Jan, George, Rafi and other CF staff!

    I am so glad I ended up taking this course through CareerFoundry! I was thinking about getting into UX Design by completing a Bootcamp for a couple of months prior to COVID-19 hitting. Once everything shut down, I thought it was the perfect time to start working on my career change. This course is 100% online and super flexible. I highly recommend CareerFoundry to anyone who asks. I've already learned a ton about UX throughout the program and I'm excited to continue to learn. You'll have access to a tutor and mentor to help you through, which is such a good perk for me so I can get professional feedback on my project.

    I will start off by saying that I was skeptical of deciding to enroll in CareerFoundry’s UX Design program. I did a ton of research online about whether or not to take a Bootcamp-style course that could potentially change my career. Let me just say, I am SO glad I decided to take that leap and enroll! Within the past few months, I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge regarding everything UX (and then some!). Every Exercise has been so thorough, yet easy to understand. But what I value most is the guidance I have been receiving. Student Advisors are always so quick to help with any technical problems, and my Tutor gives me great constructive feedback on my assignments. Most of all, I am very grateful for my Mentor. She’s critical, but in a good way. She pushes me to be the very best I can in order to succeed in this competitive industry. Plus, she has given me so much advice on job searching, interviewing, portfolio creation, and networking. Overall, if you’re thinking about changing your career to UX Design or gaining new skills, I would highly recommend CareerFoundry. It has given me so much hope in finding a career that I will love and excel in!

    To be honest with you guys. I scrolled down Instagram one day and saw this short little video from CareerFoundry that was a sponsored post and it went a little like: are you unemployed in Germany? And do you want to become a UI Designer? Little did I know that this is actually possible. The whole program really teaches you the knowledge and skills you need to learn the job. I never imagined I could do this from the comfort of my own home. Of course, this was also great timing, because I was able to do this during the lockdown situation in Germany. So my workday luckily wasn't affected by the pandemic. I should also mention that I used to work as a store manager. So I had no previous experience in the field. I am really happy I was brave enough to ask the Agentur für Arbeit to sponsor this course with the Bildungsgutschein. I am excited to see what my future career looks like. For now, I can already say that the work as a UI Designer feels much more fulfilling.  If you think about trying it yourself, I think you should :)
  • Best decision!

    It was the best decision I made in a very long time. First I was sceptic about how applicable the content would be and how professional my Tutors and Mentors will be, but after the first week, there were no doubts left. I am an established designer already and it worked perfectly for me. I received great professional support and the challenges were both perfect for beginners but also for established professionals. I would do it again! 

Thanks!
