"97% of eligible alumni get a tech job within 180 days of graduation"
Are there program requirements?
You need to have at least a B2 level in written and spoken English, a computer, (Mac or PC ) and an internet connection. Mac is preferred since we teach Sketch which is a Mac-only program. However, we suggest alternatives and provide resources for PC users.
What’s the "catch" for the job guarantee?
The requirements you’ll need to meet to be eligible for the job guarantee are based on what we know from experience will make graduates successful in their job search. We are very transparent about these requirements so that they’re easier for you to follow. Some of the requirements include: You have successfully completed 100% of your CareerFoundry program, you are applying to at least five jobs a week, and you live in a metropolitan area with a population above 200K people in any of the following countries: USA, Canada, European Union or EFTA countries, UK, Australia, or New Zealand (or you’re willing to relocate). Check out our terms and conditions for a complete list of requirements. Or connect with one of our Career Advisors to find out if you would be eligible for the job guarantee.
What kind of job can I get after the program?
You will be ready for “Junior UX Designer” or “UX Designer” or “UX/UI designer” (if you choose the UI specialization) roles based on the curriculum. If you have transferable skills from your previous career, you can potentially land a more senior role; your Career Specialist will help you to craft the right story. Many job ads for UX designers ask for 2+ years of experience, but it is often part of their “wishlist” rather than a requirement.
Is the program 100% online?
Yes, the program is entirely online so that you can study flexibly according to your own schedule. You get access to our active student community on Slack and, after the program, you will have a global network of other ambitious alumni and mentors to support you.
