    Thorough, Hands-On Experience with Great Instructors

    Careerist has helped continue my professional education in the UI/UX design industry. It enabled me to increase my skills and confidence in areas that I felt were lacking in order for me to pursue better job opportunities. I have finished the first part of the course and am about to start the internship where we break off into groups and work under a professional design lead for a real company. I'm very excited to work in a group and on a real client. I am impressed by all of the instruc...

    Valuable, Informative, Challenging

    I enjoyed connecting with my classmates outside of class the most. Whether we were practicing our final demo’s with each other, answering each others questions, or just chopping it up. I also enjoyed the classes and my instructor’s. They taught me a lot of valuable information that I will carry with me throughout my Tech Career.

    Careerist

    Careerist is a comprehensive boot camp that introduces you to the many avenues of technology. I learned the terminology, and application processes and, most importantly had the opportunity to run a demo. I loved my experience in the learning phase but know it's not over yet! I am excited to see what happens during the internship phase but so far the support from your cohort and mentors is superb. I'd definitely recommend 10/10!

    My dream came true!

    I’d been wanting to get a job in IT for a while, but I didn’t quite understand what to start with, since they all ask for at least some experience and knowledge. A friend of mine told me about Careerist and I thought that it was worth a try, and I’m glad I did! True, the education process was fast paced and rather difficult, and finding a job was too. Anyway, it was all worth it. Now I can enjoy working from home, from anywhere really, and my salary is about 50% more than it was at my ol...

    Careerist Fraud

    I took Manual Qa class from Careerist. Advisor promised me that if I don’t get job within 30 days after I finish the course ,I would get 100% money-back guarantee. I finished my course on time and they couldn’t find me job interview so I called the customer service to request money back but it got denied saying the advisor was wrong 😑. Stay away big fraud

    Seasoned, Effective, Interesting

    I'll always recommend this program, it literally helped me get into the tech bubble. The instructors are knowledgeable and patient, the materials are detailed and self-explanatory. The experience I got during the internship afterward was beneficial. My mentor was quite responsive and prepared me well for my interviews. After applying for jobs, with the help of JAS, I was able to ace most of my interviews and secured three offers at the end of three months...
