Who's done a bootcamp? Was it easy to get a job afterwards?

So I am new to this forum and looking to get into UX and I am curious what people have run into getting a job after a Bootcamp. Do employers take them seriously? I just wanted to see what everyones experience is.

Hey Dawn – welcome!

I’ve split your post into a new topic to give it more visibility. :slight_smile:

From my personal experience teaching, it can take anywhere from a month to a year to get a job after a boot camp. It really depends upon your portfolio, how much you network and hustle, and your interviewing skills. Some employers don’t take boot camps seriously, but it’s hit and miss. In UX, your portfolio speaks louder than your education. Any real world projects you canhave and that have shipped is a big plus.
