      I loved the bootcamp and I do not regret anything about it. My goal was to learn how I can apply UX knowledge in practice and on industry standard and I will say yes I actually achieved that. The resources given to me by IDF was really REALLY good and was really helpful and the great thing about it is, you get to keep them even after graduating. My instructor was really helpful and he really was there for me anytime I needed him and took me through step by step process in the building process and did so patiently. I have grown confident since I started this process.

      The bootcamp was great and I would definitely recommend it. The combination of being able to learn on your own, try things in real projects and then get feedback from a mentor regularly is great for learning both on a theoretical level as well as practically, all while getting ready for a job in UX!

      I absolutely loved my experience with the Interaction Design Foundation during the Get a New Job in UX Design Bootcamp! I had a very specific goal going in of making a portfolio site based on past projects I'd never developed case studies for and was able to get one-on-one guidance and advice on doing so. After a bit of a rocky start with an advisor I didn't work well with, I reached out and the support team was super responsive and switched me to a mentor who was perfect. He was very supportive of my goals for the program and has been a tremendous advisor as I get career ready.

      Get A UX Job Bootcamp team is a bootcamp done by Interaction design Foundation (which is a place I can highly recommend for studying UX.)
      I think this boot camp is very good for UX beginners and they give you lots of guidance and support but if you are already more advanced you need real projects, which are rather hard to start on this kind of boot camp (that was my case) Still I could have more detailed talks with  my mentor regarding my current materials (portfolio, CV ) and learn how to better write case studies. The downside is that I do not really have new content (ex case study) on my portfolio after this course, but overall my materials improved. So go for it if you are beginner, think twice if you are more advanced.

      I’m a graphic designer, I wanted to specialize in UX for a long time ago till finally this year. After pandemia, I saw a big opportunity in the digital world and I said, this is the moment! I started really excited! 😬💃🏽 During the Bootcamp I got a little lost because sometimes my mentor was not as present as I thought she will be. Sometimes her wifi didn't work so we couldn't conclude any of our meetings. I was so concentrated on the course that I tried to don't pay attention to that.

      Platform and courses are exceptional. Bootcamp is more ideal for those ready to apply for jobs but could use direct assistance creating and refining portfolio. Membership to IxDF is well worth the cost in exchange for access to the massive volume and quality material available on IxDF platform.

      I have had a very positive experience as an IxDF student.
      Mentor: I was delighted with the option to choose a mentor that matched my aspirations and career goals. Anina Lambrechts, as my mentor, really inspired me and helped build confidence as a UX professional. We had weekly calls for the duration of the course, portfolio review, and job preparation interview.
      Course structure: Tailored to student's needs. One can choose from structured projects or may work on a personal real-life UX project.
      Student Perks: A lot of curated resources to learn from as well as discounts for relevant programs and tools, together with a special offer for website hosting and domain name.
      On the course completion, the student gets an industry-recognized Certificate!
      Call with a Recruiter: And a special thank you to Brian Young from the creative recruitment firm Creative Circle for support and valuable feedback on the portfolio, interview preparation, and really anything that relates to getting into that 'magic door of your dream role"!
      And, another special thank you to Alec & Student Support IDF Bootcamp Team, that helped me to navigate the course with ease, efficiently replied to all queries, and made sure that I get the best experience possible!

      Thank you, IDF Team. You are wonderful and making such a positive difference!

      This bootcamp was great. I learned a ton and loved having a mentor. The instructors and participants are from all over the world so I got a very broad view of how UX is used around the world. I also got a detailed view from each course. I learned so much and am able to apply it to my current job. The cost is so affordable as well.

      This curriculum is robust and gives you a real "choose your own adventure" feel. You are paired with a mentor, that you get to meet with regularly, work on real projects, and at the same time, have dozens of courses at one time to choose from to really cater to your needs and interests. I have graduated, but am still able to use the platform to learn and earn certificates in the areas that I am interested in. 

    Thanks!
