    I was a student here of the UI Design Course some time ago, (around 6-7 months) ,and I loved it !! Just wanna share some quick story, on how the UI Design course, created a change for me.

    I never intended to join a company, but instead I had some marketing and product creation experience, I intended to merge 'em together and create my own stuff...

    So, I don't have any experiences to share that relate directly to UI Design as such, but overall this course, helped me in amazing ways. Some examples:

    1) I was contacted by a company to prepare their sales funnel. Now, the audience research bits in the UI Design course, helped me do a solid research of their audience, their paying capacity, which in turn helped me create the perfect Sales Funnel for my clients. Result? Well, a company that was making $20k in revenue, made close to $82k in revenue after the researched and Deep Sales Funnel I made for them, using the concepts I learned in this course.

    2) I tried launching my own product (Won't share the link here, because I don't wanna be a self promoting jerk) and the wireframing, prototyping and the complete design process I learnt here, helped me amazingly to close more clients, because now I was able to successfully use what I learnt to find my perfect client base, do some good user research, and create the perfect desirable product.

    3) Even on my Social Media Advertising Campaigns, I had a better understanding of A/B Split Tests, the campaigns I made, and whom I had to target, and even make better designs, with appropriate colors to give the best emotional effect.

    So, if you are still not sure, what I am rambling about here. Its that, you don't ONLY need to follow a design path, or a development path using the courses. If you are more focused and interested on something totally different, the courses you take here can still benefit you 10 times fold, because the course material here at CF, not only covers the immediate subject, but also covers a wider aspect, which you can use for creating your own products, creating better experiences for your clients and overall using the skills on any business that you can possibly want to expand to..

    I started the UX Design course that CareerFoundry offers back in August. My background is BA & Marketing and I was kind of scared if I would be able to finish on time and follow the material. 

    Six months later I have to say that I'm absolutely happy with the course, the tasks you had to do and most importantly the mentor I had. She was great! She poitned me out in the right direction, giving me feedback on time and answering all of my questions timely and fully.

    If you work at the same time (like I did), you have to be ready to give up most of your spare time and be dedicated and willing to work as it's a new career path and there are many new things to learn. Other than that CF provides all the tools someone needs to excel! 

    After the course they also provide further help to assist you with landing your first job.

    Just finished my 6 month program for UX Design and it was really a great experience. The achievements throughout the course are helpful and explained well. If you're dedicated and follow through step-by-step, you'll easily be on your way to a UX career after you're done.

    Leah (mentor) and Abhi (tutor) were an amazing combination and I could not have asked for a better team. Abhi was there for my day to day needs and responded to every question I had in less than 24hrs. When I was stuck, he walked me through it. Anything I needed, he was my go-to. Leah was very thoughtful in her guidance and was extremely thorough whenever I asked her a question. She went above and beyond in her explanations and our "mentor calls" really prepared me for all of the next steps, both for the achievements within the course and for starting a career after graduating.

    If you're on the fence (like I was before starting), you should definitely take a chance and go for it. It's an investment in yourself and this is definitely the most efficient way of doing it. And if you decide to move forward, I highly recommend you asking for Leah and Abhi by name. You can't go wrong!

    I wanted to switch my career from Civil Engineer to UX Designer (yea, pretty big gap) but the course was perfectly crafted to allow me to study while working. And after 6 month, I've acquired all the skills I need to start looking for a UX job.

    The lessons were really good but the best part was the mentor; mine was great and gave me precious feedback almost everyday.

    I have just completed my course on UX Design with CF and i feel really happy for my choice.

    It’s a great kickstart for a career change as you learn the whole process of UX while designing an web application and not only reading.

    As a complete beginner coming from Graphic Design i really had to put some effort but it worth it all the way.

    Having a full time job and a family while studying was hard sometimes but i never felt alone there. Support team did a fantastic job and they even offered to me 3 weeks for free to complete my course after having some issues with a few assignments.

    And finally i had a great mentor, Gökcen Keskin, whose feedback really helped me to design the app better and motivated me for taking the right decisions.

    I passed the UX design course several months earlier than the deadline. I must say, I was looking for a course that would outline design phases and decisions, clear up and  bring into structure all that enourmous overwhelming information I saw in the web.  Lucky for me, I had a great mentor Allison Yaeger. Her critical thinking, down-to-earth attitude together with positive personality both challeneged me and encouraged me to revisit my decisions, iterate on my designs. 

    Moreover I received great feedback on my portfolio, and recommendations on how to handle interviews and market myself. It helped me to land an Interaction Designer job in IceMobile, one of the best employers in the Netherlands.

    I higly recommend the course with such a professional mentor to anyone, who wants to start UX career.

    CareerFoundry definitely helped me to grow in my technical skills as a designer.  Their course helped me to familiarize myself with common design tools that are used in the industry.  The various projects and student community was helpful to expand my skills and to gain feedback.  I enjoyed the mentorship CareerFoundry offered as well.  My mentor was always open and willing to talk and flexible with times.  She gave me great and helpful feedback and helped to challenge me in learning other tools and thinking about different ways to design.

    I'm almost finished with the UI design course and I can't emphasize enough how glad I am I took the leap and committed to a bootcamp. Here are some pros and cons: Pros: -The course is self paced. -The readings and assignments focus on real world application. Each task builds on the last and suddenly, viola, you've designed an app (actually several)! -My mentor was great. We connected through Skype and email and she was okay with it when at one point, life happened and I had to take several weeks off. I even asked her to be more critical of my work and she was! (That may sound silly but I really really want a design job and I thrive under a healthy amount of feedback!!) -My mentor also had me tailor my assignments to my larger projects. The result was that I often had to do a little more work but it also meant that I got a glimpse of real problems that come up in the design process and as a result, I feel more confident applying for jobs. -The job placement team! I've never had someone help me apply for jobs. So that's neat. Cons: -Now that I'm job hunting I see that most UI jobs require you to have some basic HTML/CSS/ or JavaScript knowledge. I wish this was covered in the course. I know that there are a lot of free resources out there for this but having a project to focus on and a mentor to call on would be helpful. -The job placement team can be a little hard to get ahold of. I have several working with me so I can usually get ahold of someone but getting ahold of the same one can take time.

    Coming to CareerFoundry with prior UX design experience I thought it would help me take my UX skills to the next level.  

    I feel my CareerFoundry tutor (Abhishek Bhattacharya) and mentor (Leah Simmons) did a fantastic job showing me where I excelled and what areas I could improve in. 

    As most of the class material was not necessarily new to me, I really appreciated the enthusiasm demonstrated by Leah engaging me in critical discussions on how to realign my methods to better meet user needs.  She was high energy and generous with her time.  

     I found the class very easy and was able to complete it in a 3 month period while working a 50+ hour job.  

    I would simply state that this program is not only great for newbies but individuals who might have been working in the field for a while and want to enhance their skills.   

    I feel the CareerFoundry course was an excellent investment of my time and money!

Thanks!
