    Overall my experience taking this course was very good. The CF dashboard is really well designed, and the content and materials are really good. After finishing the course you can really get a very good idea of what the UX Design role is about. And because most of the companies that look for Ux professionals do not really know about the discipline and role, you can really grow and make an impact in the IT world. You will finish the course having an interesting Portfolio (after submitting all your tasks) that can help you to land your first UX designer job. I strongly recommend this course to everyone working in tech, also those like me that want to go more into frontend development. The only downside of the course is that mentorship is based on Skype. My personal feeling is that the professors are overwhelmed by the amount of revisions they need to take care of. Unfortunately, the feedback was not so deep and personalized as I expected. In my opinion, this has nothing to do with the quality of the mentors/tutors. Mine were great! Is more about the whole 100% online course system.

    So to summarize: I’d recommend this UX course to everyone, including web developers and marketing people or even product managers working in It!

    I went with CareerFoundry after looking into three (Tradecraft, Springboard, and General Assembly) back in June 2018. I went with CareerFoundry because at that point, I came with no experience (just eagerness and determination!) and wanted the job guarantee, which Springboard did not have at that time. I have to say this was the best decision for me at that time because now it is May 2019 and I am very confident I have the skills necessary to transition into a UX career.

    There are weekly Skype calls with a mentor, the ability to specialize in another skill (learn more UI, learn VUI, or a bit of front-end coding) to add an extra piece to your portfolio. The purpose of these UX programs is not the certificate of completion, per se, but more so you leave with a portfolio that you're proud of showing to the design community and for job applications. 

    For anyone who is still on the fence, I recommend talking to people who have already graduated from the courses and are either searching for a job or already have a job. I can say that CF has a great commuity of advocates and alumni!

    I've just completed my UX Design course and I'm now doing the Specialization course. 

    Although I had a hard time towards the middle of the course due to several reasons, I was able to get the help I needed. More specifically, the co-founder Martin reached out to me personally and offered to help me solve my issue. I really appreciate the nice gesture and the fact that he is really trying to help students achieve their goals. Thanks, Martin!

    My tutor- Carlo and my mentor- Margarida are amazing too! They are both highly experienced in the industry and they are always there to help. I requested for Carlo to be my mentor in my Specialization course too and it was certainly the right decision! He's been really helpful; not only that he makes sure I am on the right track, he also gives advice based on real-life experience and examples. I truly believe I'm in good hands! 

    The course itself is great too! It's not all theory, but we actually design something and build something! It definitlly bring up my passion and excitement throughout the study. Oh, and that sense of achievement when I see my "masterpiece" :D 

    I'm work at a Saas company but I'm totally new in this area. Doing this course ceratinly helps improve my work process, e.g. understand the product and customers better in terms of the product design and functionality. 

    I'm really glad I chose CareerFoundry and this course that brings me to a whole new Tech world! :) 

    Just one thing though, although I enjoy doing the course, it does take a lot more time than expected in my case (work full-time + family). However, as mentioned, Martin was nice enough to help me sort out my situation.

    When I first started looking at viable schools for UX/UI, I was a little sketched on the price and data that most were presenting. I learned about CareerFoundry through a Medium blog post and went down the rabbit hole from there. I signed up for a short free course to get a sense of how the information would be presented, then chatted with one of the school's advisors. Within a month I was enrolled.

     

    Here is what I love: 

    - Career Foundry partners with SkillsFund to provide loan options. This was a selling factor for me. I applied, was approved, and now a pay a decently low rate to learn not only UX/UI but Front End Development as well. 

    - You get a mentor. My mentor is Maria and she's amazing. She is patient with me and blows my mind every time we meet. You have the ability to meet with your mentor however frequently you desire. What is great about this, is that they work in the industry that you will be transitioning into. 

    - You get a Tutor. My tutor is Johnny and well, he is a lot in all of the good ways. Johnny will ensure you fully comprehended the lesson and will provide all the feedback your heart desires. He has high expectations and does his due diligence to ensure your work is up to par with where it needs to be in order to be successful within this industry.

    - You get access to an advisor and the CF slack community.

    - The material is presented exceptionally well. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up but it is self-paced.

    - I haven't even finished the course yet and I already landed a job doing exactly what I want to be doing.

    I really can't speak highly enough. I am still completing my way through the course but I learn so much that is applicable to my current career. I am able to apply the methods in real time. 

    This school is worth the investment 100%.

    If you're a professional that's contantly being chased by the financial reality of life, it's hard to make long-term investments in yourself. I became sold on CareerFoundry because they made me less anxious about the investment I was making. I knew going in that it requires my own efforts and dedication to the courses, but their comprehensive payment plans, as well as the job guarantee removed all anxieties regarding how successful of an investment this would be. I could then focus on the courses, and realised that the course is designed with ample time to work on the tasks. Even before finishing the courses, as a UX Design student, I noticed a huge increase in responses I was getting from employers. Tying it with my background, experiences, and skillsets made me a much more attractive candidate, and it's completely changed my life. Take their free course to see if this is something you're interested in studying, and make the investment in yourself. You honestly have nothing to lose.

    I started the User Experience Designer course at CareerFoundry in February 2018, completed the course in October and got my first UX job in December. The course gave me the knowledge, experience and portfolio I needed to confidently apply for UX jobs. 

    I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience with Careerfoundry, I chose the course as I needed a flexible part-time course to complete alongside my full-time job. The content and the structure of the course is excellent, broken down into manageable chunks to gain an in-depth knowledge of the UX process, the best part of the course is the support provided by the tutors, mentors and the course advisors. The course also provides support at every step of the job application process, I felt fully confident and ready when I started applying for jobs. 

    I would like to specifically mention my tutor Matt Kollat, my mentor Pia Klancar and my career specialist Richard Learthart for being three of the most supportive and inspirational people I’ve met.

    If you are considering a career change into the world of UX I highly recommend CareerFoundry.

    I have a Bachelor in Communication Studies and English is still a big obstacle in my career. So when I realized that I can not become a journalist in my new residence country, I start looking around for other options.

    I did my research and I start thinking about programming and web development. I had no idea what is what and what do I have to do, so Google became my best friend for the first weeks.

    I started several free tutorials but without having someone to show me and a real path to follow, it was pretty hard to do it. This is how I decided to register for the Career Foundry Web Development course.

    I was amazed by the structure of the course: you have around 10 assignments for each unit. At the end of each assignment, your personal tutor is going to review your work and give his feedback. At the end of each unit, you will have a video feedback from your mentor, reviewing your entire work and suggesting you any improvements.

    In the beginning, it was hard as I knew nothing about web development but slowly-slowly, with a lot of work from my side and a lot of patience from my tutor and mentor, I went through the entire course in less than 6 months, meanwhile working a fulltime job.

    I knew nothing about websites, how are they made or how they work, but the course thought me everything: a bit of front-end, a bit of back-end and hocus-pocus: at the end of the course, I had an entire portfolio that I used at my interviews.

    At the end of the web development course, I had a job preparation course where I learned a lot of tips and tricks specific for this field but also practice for job interviews. My career advisor was amazing and she helped me to overtake my fears and to be confident with my new skills.

    Less than 6 months after I finished my course, I've got not one, but two job offers. One of which was an internship from a company where I was dreaming to work at, but with a year before I wasn't able to pass their coding interview. Now, not only that I got the internship, but at the end of the internship period (4 months) I received a permanent, full-time job offer from them.

    Web development is a competitive field and the learning never really stops. I am so proud of myself to say that I am a developer and I suggest to anyone who wants to change their career to follow their dreams and to start learning. Career Foundry is definitely a very good start and teaches you not only the basics but also some advanced techniques. Plus, you have their full-time support both for assignments and job preparation.

    So what are you waiting for?
