    It's the real deal and it's worth it

    Having just completed Springboard's UX Design Career Track, I am walking away with a whole new set of UX skills and thanks to the rigorous curriculum  I feel very confident in my ability to execute them in a professional setting. I come from a multi-disciplinary design background, and I've had an interest in transitioning into the UX/UI field for a few years, so I was slowly self-learning and taking Coursera courses prior to starting the Springboard course. Unfortunately, Coursera course...

    Great Learning Experience

    The fully online, largely self-paced program made it possible for me to learn while coping with a demanding work schedule. Overall, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the curated program and the 1:1 mentorship. The mentorship is where I’ve got the most out of this program. It really does give you an in-depth insight into how data scientists works, and their industry best practices.  This program would be a great choice for those who: - wants to have direct interacti...

    I literally learned a whole new skill in less than a year through Springboard.

    From the Software Engineering Career Track Prep course to the full-on Software Engineering Career Track, I was met with genuinely kind and overall cool people. As a DJ looking to switch careers, the Prep course was very helpful in providing me a very basic understanding of web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript). In addition to a very user-friendly course, Springboard gave me a mentor (Adam G.) to help me if I ever got stuck on anything. We met weekly until I finished the course and pass...

    Data Science Career Track

    Pros: Lots of opportunities to learn about unfamiliar material. Lots of homework so I could practice what I learned. It was helpful to build a project-based portfolio to show what I learned and could do. I'm planning on going back and improving my portfolio as much as possible.

    Cons: After I completed an assignment, it would have been useful to view another's (A+) completed assignment so I could compare and learn from my mistakes.

    Data Science Career Track

    Springboard is great.  It helped launched my Data Science career just 4-5 months into the program.  But this was with 30-60 hours a week of studying and 10-20 hours a week fixing/updating my resume and CL as well as job searching and preparing for interviews.  

    Mentors were always there when needed and are really smart.  The career coaches helped tremendously and was vital to me getting me first job even with little experience.

    UX/UI Career Track

     There were so many things about Springboard that I loved! Some perks right at the beginning: self paced, different payment options, the mentor calls, extra calls, career coaches and an externship with a real company etc.  The way the curriculum was structured was incredible, starting with the basics, but also in the approach, each topic was covered in different ways to help soak up the information as well as being able to then retain the knowledge if you have different learning styles. ...

    UI/UX Design Bootcamp

    I am so glad that I chose Springboard for my bootcamp program. Like many folks, I'm making a career change, and I didn't know how quickly or slowly I'd get through this new information and skill-building, so I love that you can work at your own pace. The curriculum is well laid-out and thoughtfully brings you through the building blocks you need to complete two capstone projects, a modified Google Ventures Design Sprint and an Industry Placement Project. Those four projects are turned in...

    Data Analytics Career Track

    It's a good introduction to the topic. It really depends on how much time you have to invest in the course and how do you get the most of your encounters with mentors and coaches.
    If you are not based in the US or Canada it gets demotivating to follow the track for the professional development part.

    Data Science Career

    I was a little bit intimidated when I first signed up for the program.  The prices are very reasonable.  All that is required upfront is about $700 to save a seat in the class.  They have many payment options which allow you to defer to pay any tuition fees until after you complete the program.  The JOB GUARANTEE is what really hooked me.  They have a great career services office with people who really care and are willing to help you write a resume and modify your LinkedIn profile in or...

    Great experience!

    I think the main difference between springboard and a lot of other courses out there (I did a lot of research before deciding on Springboard) is the 1:1 guided support. You can talk to Springboard student support for student issues, you get assigned a personal mentor that you talk to once a week for the duration of the course, you can talk to other industry professionals whenever you want and you get a personal career coach. All of that makes Springboard an exceptional course and worth t...

    Data analytics

    The program is challenging and teaches a lot of key skills. Mentors working with you 1:1 weekly allows you to learn and improve based on your individual skill and need. Projects provide you with practical experience and a portfolio. Career skills are integrated to help you along the way. Career Coaches are helpful to target your search.
