    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.

    Data Analytics Course review

    I have studied this course for about 1 month. There are a lot of details in the course and a bunch of tasks to do. Luckily, my tutor and my mentor response quickly. I am not sure after i finish this course i will get the job because i haven't gone through job preparation part.

    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!

    Worth starting if you are interested in changing careers to UX/UI

    CareerFoundry provides an immense amount of support. You have your assigned course advisor, tutor, mentor, and career coach. Its a very hands-on-learning course and prepare to do a lot of reading, but overall the quality of the learning is great. I feel CareerFoundry is up to date on new UX/UI practices and I am confident I am getting the best learning from this bootcamp.

    student-oriented, flexible, elaborate

    I am currently enrolled in CareerFoundry’s UX Design Certificate Program and I find it to be a great course to understand how to  become a UX Designer. I’ve enjoyed the process of seeing my project come to life and am grateful that I have a support system like CareerFoundry to help guide me along the way. They have a job prep course as well as job-seeking assistance that I am looking forward to utilizing once I finish the program.

    Great tutors and mentors

    The support and feedback from my tutors and mentors is great. Both are industry pros and give great insight on the course project. 
    I love being able to work at my own pace and around my current work schedule.
    Having zero UxD experience, it's been a challenge, but the course guides you along and you get to view other student submissions for guidance.

    Career Foundry, is a great course, my mentor has told me on more than one occasion I am over analyzing and its great! However I overanalyze Everything, and it makes me rethink the knowledge I have absorbed.

    Encouraging, the staff really feels invested in your success

    The course is extremely fast paced, and it's really easy to fall behind if you have work or school at the same time as this bootcamp. However, I've had good experiences contacting the student advisors because they are very understanding of my situation and would help me get back on track. My tutor approves my tasks with some pretty generic/nonspecific feedback, sometimes I'm not sure if I'm really understanding the scope of the lesson because I don't get much constructive criticism, whic...

    Career Change within a couple of months!

    After college I felt a bit stuck because I knew I didn't want to attend grad school nor did I want to work entry level positions forever. After some research I found my field of interest (UI Design) and found CareerFoundry. So far I am incredibly impressed with the skills I have developed and how much I have learned in these past couple of months. It is incredibly impressive to go from not knowing anything in the field and finishing the course with a full polished portfolio, that was cur...
