    The course content is great and very varied. Some of the instructions are not entirly clear however and can lead to confusion. Also, some of the provided datasets in the Python module are too large for a normal person's PC to process which leads to memory issues and ultimately delays progress with the course.

    I started the UI Design program with CareerFoundry in December 2021, on track to finish by September (I'm doing a part-time track) and I'm loving my experience so far. I'm a nanny with a fine arts background, and really wanted a career change, but I wasn't sure which direction to go. I spoke with some friends with similar backgrounds and experiences who decided to go the tech route (some programmers, some UX designers) with either CF or similar bootcamps. They've since finished their programs and are in awesome jobs now- so I can definitely see myself in their position someday soon! CF's course material is packed with helpful info and tons of resources, and there's some basic UX material in the UI course. My mentor and tutor are both immensely supportive and communicative. I've also been seeking networking opportunities both within CF's Slack community and on my own, which has been a wonderful experience. If you're thinking about making a career shift and UI or UX design seems like something you could see yourself doing, sign up and take the Intro course! If you decide it isn't for you, you can get a full refund. They're one of the most affordable bootcamps, but the quality of their programs is amazing! Plus the job gaurentee also really eased my anxiety about making this jump. I'm working part-time and completing my program, which is difficult sometimes, but my only regret is that I didn't start sooner! I literally have nothing negative to say about my experience. It's a lot of work but if you're determined to learn, I highly recommend CareerFoundry and their wonderful and helpful team.

    I just finished the Intro to UX Design course and will be starting in the Immersive soon. I have really enjoyed the course so far and I’m excited to go even deeper in the immersive. My tutor and my mentor are both so engaged and excited about what they do that it’s hard to not feel excited every day to learn more. The student advisors are also great; very professional and kind, and overall the communication with everyone has been quick and easy. I researched a lot of other courses before deciding on CareerFoundry and was nervous to take the leap but I can say wholeheartedly that this decision was the right one for me and it’s going to change my life. I have no background in UX and I am still able to quickly understand the course curriculum. I will post another review when I graduate but I highly recommend CareerFoundry already.

    I’m just over half way through my UX Bootcamp but overall have had a great experience so far. I’m already excited to begin the job search knowing I’ve received help and feedback from so many industry professionals. I enjoy the self paced learning style which still allows for helpful and quick feedback from tutors and mentors. I’d definitely recommend CareerFoundry

    I’m enrolled in the UX design certification for the last 9 months. I have no design background and yet now I can say that I can design. The overall course content is very well organized and delivered. The tutor that I’m working with is amazing and super knowledgeable in his field. The mentor truly mentors. What else one can ask for. 
    The course although is on a pricey end but with instalments it’s bearable.
    I’m rating 3 stars on job assistance because I’m unsure about it as haven’t been through that process yet. But it’s important to mention that I’ve been assigned a career counsellor now.

    I've started this Bootcamp because I wanted to put my 110% in my passions and I thought CareerFoundry could help me with that. After a couple of weeks, I realized that it was the best choice of my life! I really enjoyed the course, the support (tutor, mentor, professional mentor, and colleagues) and I can say without a doubt that it's the best investment you can make. In only 2 months after my Bootcamp finished, I found the job I was looking for. It's a dream and it's everything thanks to these wonderful people that strive to help others achieve their dreams.
