    Great Program to receive the skills and experience you need to start your career!

    This program was a great fit for me. Coming from a career background of education and music, breaking into the developer world was daunting. Through the mentorship, curriculum and job support components of Springboard I was able to learn the skills and experience to forge a path towards a career in web development while maintaining a full time job. Now, this was not easy and presented some challenges when it comes to balancing a demanding full time job with Springboard's innovative and r...

    Amazing professional development

    I was so happy that my husband pushed me to join Springboard. I really benefitted from the mentorship and the career services help. I think. I would have done well using other cheaper options to get into this industry but the career services and mentor program were what made me sign up to begin with.

    Best Online School

    I had an amazing time with Springboard.  Amazing design experience from the ground up, fantastic support, great coaches, but above all the best mentorship experience.  My mentor will be a friend for life and will be invaluable to my career in the future.  Nothing but positive things to say about my Springboard experience.

    Taught me what I didn't learn in school

    As someone who graduated from undergrad with a biochem degree, almost no coding experience, no relevant projects to showcase on my resume and no idea of how to get a job, the Data Science course and whole package accomplished what it said it would: I got a job in data before I even finished the course. That being said - it took me an entire year to finish (as I started a Master's in Statistics about halfway through), but spreading the coursework out over a long period of time and having ...

    Springboard helped me gain confidence as I made a career transition.

    After the program, I felt more confident going out and applying for UX design jobs. My favorite part would be the Industry Design project. I find myself referencing that project multiple times in interviews and interviewees receive the experience well too. I just finished the program yesterday, I'm now entering the job search phase with a career coach. This part of the program was what really sold me into committing.

    So-so

    If your goal in going to Springboard is to get a job, as was mine, then you may be in good hands. I scored 3 job offers within 3 months of starting the program. That's about all I can say positively about the program, and the success in landing a job came more from the psychological impact of the program name than it did from the program itself.

    Unfortunately, the curriculum is one of the laziest curriculums I have ever seen in my education experience.

    Most of the useful ...

    Data Science Career Track

    First of all, course advisors, mentors, and career coaches were great. I really liked the support from advisors, because I was working from home and taking care of my children while doing homeschooling because of the Covid19, they really helped me by understanding the situation and gave me the necessary time and courage to finish the program. Career coaches were great. They gave so strong advice for the career path. Mentors were very good and gave very strong technical feedbacks and advi...

    UI/UX Design

    I loved this program - I learned a lot about UX/UI Design, I have four case studies for my portfolio, I learned a ton about networking and career prep, and I'm waking away with a new sense of confidence to be an official designer. It's self-paced you so you have to be a self-starter and self-motivated!

    UX Design Career Track

    It was very helpful to learn skills hands-on by starting the capstone project so early in the course, then slowly working on it for a couple months as each skill is learned. My mentor was particularly amazing (gave thoughtful, expert, challenging, and encouraging feedback), which made every penny worth the course. I hear most mentors are great, though I'm sure experiences can vary a bit. 

    My main small complaint about the course is that most sub-projects are still fairly large/inv...

    UI/UX Career Track - Great Foundation!

    I really enjoyed Springboard's UI/UX Career Track program! It is a hefty curriculum, but easy to follow and left me confident that I gained a solid foundation in the field. I also really enjoyed the UI exercises added throughout the curriculum to help me learn and refine my design skills! I studied full-time and completed it in about 9 months (so this is not a quick-fix course, especially coming from a non-design background). I would recommend it to anyone looking to commit to a career c...
