    Really good and recommended course

    When I first encountered with the course I was excited about their Mentor-driven and Project-driven approach to teaching. It felt like what I needed to be able to do an online course. Also the price was unbeatable, and still is I think. I do have some quite minor problems with the course, but at the bottum line, only with the CareerFoundry I was able to learn programming. 

    The biggest thing I was excited about was the mentoring part. It actually what made the ...

    Great support. Comprehensive curriculum.

    My experience at CareerFoundry has been very great! Before the course I tried to teach myself web development. But I had a really hard time keeping myself motivated. So I looked into various options to learn coding properly. Compared to all the other online bootcamps out there CareerFoundry had the best price and still a very comprehensive curriculum. The course material covered the most important topics. My mentor helped me a lot when I wanted to learn more than what the actual cours...

    Positive Experience

    I enjoyed my experience going thru the CF web development course. Before attending CF, I wasn’t too sure what kind of area of development I would like to specialize in. There are so many specialities, frameworks and languages out there-it can be confusing and overwhelming at first... I’m very happy I chose CF because they teach, in my opinion, a broad spectrum of the popular frameworks out there such as Bootstrap and Ruby on Rails - it really helped me understand the...

    Predatory job guarantee. They took my money and I still have no job!!!!

    Incredibly predatory in their job guarantee. They purposely hide that you only have 30 days to request it after 6 months now I’m broke and still no job in UX because of them!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT GET A JOB!

    Please use a different course provider

    I don't have anything good to say about CareerFoundry's Web Development program. The Tutors are meant for day to day questions, and you can have as frequent as once a week meetings with your Mentor. CareerFoundry gets you by making the crash course super easy, and the first few lessons (after you've paid) start out easy to understand and gradually get way more complicated by the 5th lesson which is after their 14 day refund window.
    When I asked the Tutor for any help I needed, they wo...

    THINK VERY HARD BEFORE ENROLLING!!!

    Think very hard before enrolling in this course! The promises made to you before enrolling are NOT going to be your reality. "75 days average" time to finding a new job. I know people that have finished the course and have been looking for a job for almost 2 years and can't even get interviews. "Job Guarantee" Read the fine print!!! So many stipulations to this making it almost impossible to actually qualify to get your money back. In fact, this was the first thing my mentor told me on o...

    Do not sign up for Data Analytics Program

    Trying to learn from this curriculum is like trying to learn to read, but the instructors only tell you about the alphabet they don't actually tell you what each letter sounds like, or how to put them together in sounds. They tell you what to do, but not how to do it. They use 10,000 words and make things way more complicated when 100 words would do. You end up having to use google and youtube to teach yourself. On top of that the tutors and mentors they promise are useless. They are wor...

    It was an amazing experience

    During my last job last year I participated the UI-Design course. I was an amazing experience, I learned a lot and received a lot of new tools and new contacts from all around the world.  
    After completing the course at CareerFoundry, I started the Job-preparation course and together with my mentor from CF, we started to prepare me for the application process.
    It was not an easy time for me, personally and professionally, and they supported and strengthened me the whole time.

    Transformative Learning Journey

    My journey into the world of UX design began a year ago, right after I wrapped up a concise yet invaluable Critical Thinking and Problem-solving course. My quest for a comprehensive and meticulously structured program consistently led me to the CareerFoundry platform. To dip my toes into the UX waters, I embarked on their introductory course, which further solidified my resolve to commit to their full-fledged UX Designer course.
