Kelsey Horowitz

Recent College Graduate / HR Assistant

"Avocademy is a great course for anyone looking to start out in UX Design. I like that it is structured, so I can check off my readings and activities along the way. Maca (my mentor) has also been really responsive, and always answers my messages. She is always willing to help, and has even recorded some personal tutorial videos for me to explain how to do something on Figma (the design software). I also feel like her feedback is constructive, professional, and personable, and you can talk to her through video chat, or her new Slack Community group she created (which is also cool to see the other people in the class)."

Rebecca Rausch

Graphic Design Background

"I can't say enough good things about my experience. Maca provides incredible information throughout the course (I ended up bookmarking so many pages, videos, etc. that will help me in the future). I even learned more about graphic design from her than I did years ago in school. Not only that, but you have direct access to mentors throughout the course. They also meet with you every few weeks on Zoom to make sure you are on the right track and are available to message on Slack. The Slack channel also provides an opportunity to interact with other students and exchange tips/tricks."

Kevin Hanst

Recent Graduate (Economics Background)

"For my little experience as a designer, working with Maca was extremely helpful in learning the basic principles of UX/UI Design and having her by my side every step of the way was very reassuring. This program allowed me to get right into practicing these design principles and create a project from beginning to end while also developing my first portfolio. It was a great first step into becoming a full-fledged designer that was both affordable and flexible to work with."

Mara Rosenstock

Marketing Manager

"When attempting to transition from marketing to user experience after completing a UX design course, I struggled to hear back from any of the jobs I applied to which felt very defeating.

Through Avocademy’s Career Jumpstart program, I learned how to emphasize the right info on my resume, ensure I showcased my best work on my portfolio, and present the right content from my portfolio during job interviews. I was also able to receive mentorship and advice from people who have years of experience in a variety of industries which helped me understand what a real UX job could look like. "

Kathy Nguyen

College Student

"I chose to enroll in Avocademy's Career Jumpstart course because I was really unmotivated and couldn't find a job despite applying for a couple months. Now, I'm really glad I made that decision! The course is pretty affordable compared to other bootcamps, and it helped me realize that I definitely had the skills to become a UX designer, I just needed to present it better. The course itself was very informational and thorough, and by the time I was finished I felt a lot more confident about my resume and portfolio."
