I’m making a career shift from Marketing into UX Design/Research, and as a first step, applied to General Assembly and Tradecraft (both based in SF). I just found out that I’ve been accepted into both programs and am wondering if anyone has any insight into the pros/cons of either. Both are around the same price and have similar course outlines, so I’m having trouble making a decision!
I’m specifically interested in transitioning into a UX Research role. Both programs offer User Testing and research methodology, as well as design/prototyping. I’ve heard that GA is more widely known, but TC is better connected within the San Francisco tech scene and can be a bit more personalized.
Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
