    Thinkful UX/UI Design Flex

    I took part in Thinkful's UX/UI Design Flex program from September 2020-June 2021. 

    It was a weird time to take on a new project with the pandemic, my home state being on fire and being job limbo. In spite of the word seemingly to be ending I decided to move forward with my plans to take this course. 

    Overall I had a great experience. I'm not a school person and usually stray away from things that are structured. This program was the perfect balance of structure and ability...

    Great experience overall for a career pivoter

    For someone that is completely new to tech, I think I did pretty well. Yes, it’s not easy but that is part of the struggle and it’s up to you how you move forward. I chose the Data Flex program because I feel that I learn more when I read and do the exercises on my own. At time, I’d get stuck and I’ll go on the slack to seek guidance or wait for my mentor meeting. My mentor was amazing. He’s very knowledgeable of the industry and the school material. The only things that Thinkful struggl...

    Data Analytics Flex

    Thinkful offered to let me take a course and only pay if I found a job.  I retired a couple of years ago as a software engineer.  I wanted to go back to work but also change my field a little.  The data analytics flex course allowed me to go at my own pace. The information was presented with lots of examples and gives a great foundation in excel, Tableau and Python.  I was very impressed.  I was offered a job 2 weeks after I graduated.  Well worth the time spent.

    Data Analytics Immersion Program

    I just graduated from Thinkful and I had an absolutely fantastic experience overall. Starting from no experience in SQL, Python or Tableau, I am now confident enough to try and attempt projects on my own. Like any other boot-camp, it is a given that you will not have the complete knowledge of the subject that you are studying but the important thing is that you leave with a solid foundation that allows you to build on it and that is what I have. The instructors and the career guides are ...

    Data Analytics

    Thinkful is a great way to jumpstart your career in the tech world. It opens you up to opportunities and the modules are easy to understand. I received the help I needed when I got stuck and learned the skills needed to be valuable to employers. I was able to get out of my dead end job and am excited for what the future holds.

    I would recommend!

    A little over a week ago, I completed the Immersive UX/UI program at Thinkful. The program is intensive; there was a lot of information to take in in five months; nevertheless, they were willing to work with me based on my situation. Thinkful's support and the academic team are fantastic; they understand that life is full of unpredictable events, and they were willing to support me based on my situation. My family and I are deeply affected by COVID-19, my ASM, mentor, and the academic te...

    UX Design Grad

    I recently completed the UX Design Immersion program. I'm really glad I did it, though I am still looking for a job (I just graduated 2 weeks ago - why I left the job Assistance as N/A, though they do seem to have a great assistance program from what I can tell.) Some other students in my cohort were already interviewing/landed roles before graduation but they tended to have some background in design already. I think this program is a great way to get into UX and really teaches you every...

    Engineering Immersion Program Gratduate

    I recently graduated from Thinkful in March of 2021. My experience with Thinkful was for sure a mixed bag of some amazing experiences and then several regrettable situations. I had heard about Thinkful from a friend who had been through their program 3 years before. He raved about the mentorship and the pair-programming that happened through the program to help you learn software development. The mentor assigned to me was AMAZING. He went above and beyond to serve and help me survive a v...

    Changed my career track

    I graduated from the Immersion Software Engineering program a month ago. Overall, the course was paced very quickly and, unless you have prior experience with code, prepare to spend the majority of your free time trying to dissect the material. The coursework is broken down into modules and, within each module, there is a checkpoint with an assessment (this is autograded for the most part) that will need to be completed. There are a few capstone projects which make good portfolio feature...
