Today, we’re excited to announce the biggest set of improvements to UX Academy since our massive revamp of the program in 2017.
Designlab is already in a class of its own when it comes to career support—but we’re now adding to that through an expanded Career Services program, and portfolio panel review.
More Career Services Sessions
In our last major update to UX Academy last year, we introduced Career Services. It’s included in the price of UX Academy, but it’s effectively a follow-up course that allows graduates to work 1-on-1 with a Career Coach to add further polish to their portfolio, get help and feedback on job applications, as well as practice and improve their interview skills.
Compared to other design education programs, Career Services already represents unparalleled support for the transition from training to employment. But we are always looking for ways to improve the support we offer our graduates, and for this reason, today we’re announcing an increase in the number of 1-on-1 Career Coaching sessions from six to twelve.
We’ve been piloting this level of support within the program over the last few months, and have found that the updated curriculum and guidance has really helped students with their job prep.
You can find full details of Career Services on the UX Academy homepage.
