    CareerFoundry is exceeding my expectations!

    After a ton of research, I signed up for the UX Design program at CareerFoundry and have been super happy with it thus far! I'm about 1/3 of the way done and have been impressed with my assigned tutor and mentor as both provide excellent feedback and advice. Also, I enjoy how flexible the program is and the sheer amount of support offered, from fellow students and CareerFoundry employees. I'm excited for the rest of the program!

    CF intro to UI design

    The course has helped me to sample the key elements and knowledge of UI design. The tasks and exercises have provide a good foundation to build on. 

    I’ve nurtured skills that are key to my career.

    Having a dedicated tutor and mentor was a great support.

    Supportive, engaging, and engaging

    I wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed up. The courses are delivered in manageable chunks with lots of additional resources. My mentor and tutor have been timely with their feedback. They are encouraging and offer useful additional resources, tips, and tricks.

    Great feedback

    My tutor and mentor are great at giving constructive feedback, as well as being timely. I rarely need to ask questions because all information is given well and understandably, however when I do I get a response fast.

    Pleasantly Surprised!

    I am currently enrolled in the Data Analytics Immersion course. I have been consistently impressed with the amount of material that is covered. The way CareerFoundry has set the program up is also really great! My tutor has been incredibly helpful and super responsive to my questions and concerns. However, nothing is perfect! The material can be unclear at times while other times you're quite literally being spoon fed directions. I've found that trying to communicate with the student adv...

    Feedback on work not up to industry standards

    When I first joined the UI program, I was excited to begin learning. To my surprise all my assignments were approved upon first submission with very little critical feedback. When I asked for feedback, I was given small things I could change about my work. So, I assumed I was doing well. I completed the course and began applying for job and networking. I found mentors in the industry who told that what was taught in this program did not match industry standards and that without any exper...

    Rigorous, informative, and well structured!

    Prior to taking on this course, I needed something that was well structured and had valuable information necessary to guide someone new to the field like me. This course has great resources and people that genuinely care for your success. I would definitely recommend CareerFoundry!

    Career Change in Progress!

    I'm currently 1/2 way though the CF UX Design Program and I'm thrilled so far. I love that I have a tutor who I can communicate with several times a week, and a mentor to review the big achievements with. I was also just assigned a job prep course teacher as well. I'm an older student taking steps to a huge, completely different career change- it feels good to have a support as I'm learning all of these new skills.

    PM Bootcamp student

    I'm not very far in the course but so far it seems to be going pretty well. There were some tasks that need more clarification as there was some confusion between my tutor, mentor and myself but overall I've enjoyed the course so far and the encouragement from my tutor and mentor.

    Great so far!

    I’m almost ⅓ through the program and I’m really enjoying it. The material is clearly explained and the tutors and mentors are prompt and thorough with feedback. I like that I can move at my own pace rather than having a strict schedule, which means I can work ahead one week if I am going to be busy with other things the next.

    Insightful, accessible, fun

    My experience as a student in the UX course was amazing! I did not expect a tutor and mentor here to guide me through my whole journey, it was very helpful! The course gave me a proper insight on how UX research and design is done. Now, I am more confident than before in this field, and hopefully this course can serve as a stepping stone for me!
