    self-paced, flexible and practical knowledge

    Career Foundry is an online learning platform offering comprehensive courses in tech-related fields like web development, UX/UI design, and data analytics. It emphasizes project-based learning, provides personalized mentorship, and offers job placement assistance. However, it can be relatively expensive, has a limited course selection, and requires self-motivation for self-paced learning.

    Flexible and Hopefully Worth It

    The course is good although it's a little basic. The tutors and mentors are all timely with the submissions. There is a lot of reading but it is manageable. I'm currently on the Python section and the only complaint I have is the long wait times to load the dataframes. Everything else is fine.

    Well Organized

    The lessons all build towards your final project so you're not wasting time with any "needless" tasks. The go at your own pace style of the course is a HUGE plus. My husband did a synchronous bootcamp when he switched careers and it nearly killed both of us. Having the ability to work in your down time isone of my favorite features of the course. Mentor and tutor are fantastic.

    Encouraging experience I'd HIGHLY recommend.

    I started Career Foundry a couple of weeks ago and have already recommended it to two friends of mine. I'm incredibly grateful for the tutor's support I've had as I try to double down on the course and finish by the end of summer. They go above and beyond to make you feel empowered.

    CareerFoundry UX Program

    My experience overall was positive. I obtained skills that I used to brand myself and succeed in a UX role. I especially liked having mentorship throughout the program. I wish that my course mentor was available during my job hunt period because there were numerous times that I wanted industry specific advice that I only thought of once applying for jobs. My job prep mentor was great, however, for some of the UX specific questions that occurred to me, I would need my course mentor to hel...

    Not the best bootcamp for web development

    I'll evaluate this bit by bit:

    Course material: It's all reading. There are some videos from time to time but 90% of the course load will be reading. If you're the type to need a video or live sessions this bootcamp is not for you. I feel the way they introduce React in the 3rd chapter is way too complicated. It goes right to the giant project with like 6-8 components. As a complete beginner this was utterly confusing..I almost had no idea what I was doing. My tutor did help me br...

    Amazing academic support

    I love how I am able to work on this course in my own time, it’s 100% self-paced and flexible. But they don’t sacrifice any support in the mean time. Between a mentor and tutor, I feel well-prepared and confident in the new skills I’m learning. I can go to either of them with questions and they respond usually within the same day, if not by the next. My mentor is available to help with all sorts of things and provides encouragement when I feel lost. I can book calls with my mentor and he...

    No regrets! Only bootcamp to take

    I am halfway through my course and I have learned so much already. My tutor and mentors have been there for me every step of the way. I’m excited to complete the course and see what the world has in store for me.

    Going well!

    CareerFoundry is a long, meaningful journey.  Yes, there are days when it's lonely and you lose motivation.  But I think overall, the learning has been solid and relevant to the main goal at hand.  It is a lot of reading (one thing I wish was simplified, shorter, or mixed in with live/recorded instruction), so grab some noise-canceling headphones and coffee and get down to the nitty-gritty.  

    CF's Data Analytics course, I feel, provides lots of ways to view, manipulate, a...

    UI/UX immersion Course

    As a Graphic Designer with a 15 year experience I thought i was a good career switch. I definitely liked submerging myself in the program and learning the methodologies behind UI design as well as UX design.

    Systematic, Supportive, Detailed

    CareerFoundry is a phenomenal way to learn online. They have incredibly helpful “mentors” and “tutors” who encourage you and advise you as you go through the course. Each lesson gives detailed information and outside sources for when you want to learn more outside of the exercise. The feedback you receive is not only encouraging but helps for revision along with comments about real world expectations.

    Excellent structure and support.

    I find the structure of the curriculum and each lesson is thoroughly thought through and informative. I don’t think I could’ve compiled all this information on my own no matter how long I had, especially in the right sequence.
