    I have completed the Intro to UX Design course and I am currently doing Career Foundry's full UX Immersion.

    I think CF provides great value for money compared to the other schools and I really love their positive and encouraging learning philosophy. The course is structured well, having you complete a piece of your project during each lesson.

    Having a mentor to call and get feedback from is super helpful. As someone doing a career transitioning having this resource feels so valuable. Also there is a welcoming community on Slack where it's easy to reach out to the school, career counsellors, and other students for help.

    Since it's a self paced course, you have to be disciplined enough to stick with it- you will get out how much you put in. But overall I can say that the school provides a lot of elements to helping you succeed which is great.

     The course teaches you the important basics on what it needs to become a UX-Designer. The tutors and mentors are professional and the ressources are very well sorted and helpful for beginners and intermediates alike. With a real sense for progression the course motivates you to not only achieve your goals fast but also to go a bit further and dive deep into a topic. I really enjoyed the tempo of the course.
    I just started the optional job prep course but for now it is great as well. Can only recommend CF!

    I've taken courses at General Assembly, Bloc, and now CF. Though all have pros and cons I will say CF has the most thorough self-paced course of them all. GA weighed heavily on the instructor and Bloc wasn't as extensive considering the price. I found CF to be a nice balance and give you the most bang for your buck.

    The UX Design Program is an intensive, and concept heavy course, with lots of helpful information for anyone wanting an introduction to the UX methodology. I'd suggest having some basic graphic and graphic software knowledge before you decide to apply for the course to be able to finish your tasks in the estimated time, especially if English is not your first language.

    There's a lot of reading, research, writing, and you'll need to learn using software or graphic language mostly all by yourself. I don't think this is necessarily bad, it's a normal studying process, but it can be stressful to meet the deadlines while having to do some extra research on the side. 

    Overall, the course meets my level of satisfaction, and the whole experience with CareerFoundry is a positive journey.

    This type of online bootcamp is really dependent on how great your mentors/tutors are, and I was lucky that my mentors were super hands-on and were not hesitant to give me constructive criticism.  The courses itself had some issues with flow and lessons not matching the assignments (at least for front-end dev specialization), but I am aware that they had just recently changed the lesson.  This is probably a good sign that they take into consideration student feedback and are trying to adjust accordingly!  So while it made for a confusing experience, I can appreciate their hard work.

    Just while having a hard time to find the career of my dreams I saw and advertisement of Careerfoundry. I was subscribing to their daily UX/UI mail and even the small articles I got for free, were so interesting I immediately decided I want more of this. I started my studies in June 2019 and I am super satisfied with my decision. The articles are clear and easy to understand with extra resources about the topic. The tutor who is assigned is helpful and ready to answer all of the questions I have. Their advisor team is super nice and they even check up on me regularly about how I am feeling with the course. The physical distance does not affect the quality of the studies as there is a great communication flow between the students and teachers and we even have a huge slack community. I had one bad experience with one teacher but everything was sorted out nicely, and feedback is always welcome.
    The goals are reachable even beside a full time job, and you can ask for more time if you are sick, or having a holiday.
    I had a small graphic design background but believe me you do not need any. You just need some imagination and creativity but you won't be lost if you dont have any design background.
    I did not even finish the whole course, but I already got promoted within my company just because the portfolio I made and because of the knowledge I received from Careerfoundry.
    Also I am really thankful for the way the articles are written. not too dry and really down to earth.

    Thank you again CareerFoundry. And keep it going! You rock!

    You can read more about how much I am grateful, appreciative and why do I recommend Career Foundry to Everyone on The Planet Earth on my website! Honestly speaking I do not give 5 stars often. I am actually often writing less positive feedbacks, super honest about everything and everyone but Career Foundry is beyond measure of 5 stars.
    If I could I would give them 10+ for all categories. That speaks for itself. 😏

    They gave me Wings to Fly HIGH! and below you would read what kind of Wings I got with Career Foundry. If you want extra tips on how to get a dream career with a great salary, please contact me. Have a great ride! You do not need Luck, you need Career Foundry!

    I've just filled the Alumni Job Survey on Career Foundry LinkedIn group (6 months support, coaching even when you get your first career, which School or University does it? None, just Career Foundry) and I decided to share with you what I got from them because without Career Foundry I would not have this awesome career as UX/UI Designer. Let's see how it goes, it is new plus present sci-fi situation but my GUT Feeling, my Intuition is telling me the good stuff are coming even more and I feel so.
    The trust is what we all need, in time of taking the new brave step to a new career path and when we reach pour dream career.

    I was asked on this survey provided by Career Foundry if I am willing to help other students with their career path. Yes, I do. 😊 You can reach me at any time even you the reader of Career Report by connecting with me through my website above and below LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/katarzynahasnik/


    One of my role in my present career UX/UI Designer is also implementing Agile Culture across the DevOps Team based in Ireland and other countries. I am Leader of DevOps, working directly with CEO and CTO, Co-founders, shareholders, clients, Marketing Executive boosting written marketing content, Graphic Designer by revaluating design, logo etc. My role would be updated to Head of Design or Creative Director after initial time as already I was told. Let's see. Just day by day, see how it goes, in this sci-fi, you never know...how the next day would look like, so take it easy and fun😎 I had been called Scrum Master already 😏and running "Clarity of Communication" weekly workshops to implement transparent culture, honest and upfront. I mentor my workmate, Graphic Designer by daily Zoom to field fo UX/UI. Plus I create UX/UI for our software products.

    Just a few more words about the recruiting process.
    When you know you know. It is not about Love only. Let the MAGIC happen! Believe it and let the Gut speak for you. Do not analyse too much. Logical thinking does not work here. Just go with the flow. Hiring managers, CTO, Co-Founder - KNOWS BETTER. 😊 Let go if something takes too long and let Universe do work for you!
    🥳
    There were 2 companies, which contacted me super fast with hiring managers interview phone calls, which went very well but the process of recruiting was slow (big companies). There was also a positive outcome by networking event open for me but due to the present situation was put on hold. In mid-time a very high level of professionalism recruiter found me on LinkedIn, call me immediately with an email with descriptions. All process took 7 working days from phone call to confirmed career offer with my weekend away in mid-time (4 days, why not to take a break from it 😎). Altogether from finishing the Job Preparation course, it took less than 3 weeks in a career search after graduation at a very easy, relaxed phase. I could start earlier but I needed to finish some projects and get into New Chapter, New Begining, go shopping etc 🙂. I and my boss established a date of start together on mutual agreement, New Moon, 24th of March as we both are into those type of stuff, which is even cooler. 😁 I also suggested or more even required to hire Junior Developer as part of the Dublin team. The great guy was chosen who click with us, similar mindset and interests count so much and we all started at New Moon.

    More about how much I am grateful, appreciative and why do I recommend Career Foundry to Everyone on The Planet Earth!
    Honestly speaking I do not give 5 stars often. I am actually often writing less positive feedbacks about everything and but Career Foundry is beyond measure of 5 stars.
    If I could I would give them 10+ for all categories.
    That speaks for itself. 😏

    They gave me Wings to Fly HIGH! and below you would read what kind of Wings I got with Career Foundry. If you want extra tips on how to get a dream career with a great salary, please contact me. Have a great ride! You do not need Luck, you need Career Foundry!

    I've just filled the Alumni Job Survey on Career Foundry LinkedIn group 96 months support, coaching even when you get your first career) and I decided to share with you what I got from them.

    I was asked on this survey if I am willing to help other students with their career path. Yes, I do. 😊 You can reach me at any time even you the reader of Career Report by connecting with me through my website above and below LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/katarzynahasnik/
    One of my role in my present career UX/UI Designer is also implementing Agile Culture across the DevOps Team based in Ireland and other countries. I am Leader of DevOps, working directly with CEO and CTO, Co-founders, shareholders, clients, Marketing Executive boosting written marketing content, Graphic Designer by revaluating design, logo etc. My role would be updated to Head of Design or Creative Director after initial time as already I was told. Let's see. Just day by day, see how it goes, in this sci-fi, you never know...how the next day would look like, so take it easy and fun😎 I had been called Scrum Master already 😏and running "Clarity of Communication" weekly workshops to implement transparent culture, honest and upfront. I mentor my workmate, Graphic Designer by daily Zoom to field fo UX/UI. Plus I create UX/UI for our software products. 

    Just a few more words about the recruiting process. 

    There were 2 companies, which contacted me super fast with hiring managers interview phone calls, which went very well but the process of recruiting was slow (big companies). There was also a positive outcome by networking event open for me but due to the present situation was put on hold. In mid-time a very high level of professionalism recruiter found me on LinkedIn, call me immediately with an email with descriptions. All process took 7 working days from phone call to confirmed career offer with my weekend away in mid-time (4 days, why not to take a break from it 😎). Altogether from finishing the Job Preparation course, it took less than 3 weeks in a career search after graduation at a very easy, relaxed phase. I could start earlier but I needed to finish some projects and get into New Chapter, New Begining, go shopping etc ☺️. I and my boss established a date of start together on mutual agreement, New Moon, 24th of March as we both are into those type of stuff 😁. I also suggested or more even required to hire Junior Developer as part of Dublin time. The great guy was chosen who click with us and we all started at New Moon. I am there for 9 days feels like we know each other for months. 😊

    I am so thankful for CareerFoundry. The UX Design Certification online gave me flexibility to keep working and the interaction with my mentor (a Senior Designer 7+ years of UX industry experience) was invaluable. The curriculum is extremely thorough and well designed. Additionally, I had a great experience with the job prep course and the Career Specialists. Sami and Jennifer were an amazing source of support! Everyone I interacted with at CareerFoundry was helpful. They have a great staff as well as amazing tutors and mentors.
     I enjoyed interacting with other students and alumni through slack and have made friends through the course as well.

    My advice: be prepared to put in the work and then additional work after you complete the course. Networking is essential. Be open to feedback and apply it. Use all the CareerFoundry resources to your advantage while you are in the course (and after). UX Design is very hard field to break into but the CareerFoundry program gave me the design training, resources and job preparation/career advice to get an awesome entry level UX job (far better than I imagined was possible for me). CareerFoundry is worth the investment. It changed my life and I am so thankful and excited about my new career!!!

    I am currently almost at the end of the UI design specialization course for UX designer, so far I found the course very valuable, the mentor, and the community on slack are very helpful. I feel it give the necessary skills that integrated with knowledge in UX design can be very valuable for employers. Careerfoundry give 2 months to complete this course, and if you do it part time while you have a job it is probably just enough time to complete it.

    As it is a fully online course you really still need to be able to motivate yourself in order to be able to do the whole course online. I haven't been able to start the job support but I heard good things about it. If you do it as part of the full UX design course you will be able to take advantage of the job warranty is something that really help you to keep motivated to get till the end. Be aware they are strict rules in order to satisfy the requirements of the job warranty but it is probably fair it is like that. 

    Overall I am quite satisfied with the course and with the whole experience with Careerfoundry and I would recommend this course.
