What can I expect in Career Services?

Career Services is considered Phase 3 of UX Academy, consisting of 24 weeks where we pair you with a Designlab Career Coach to help you find a job as a generalist UX, UI or Product Designer (full-time, part-time, internship, or freelance).

You'll have 18 sessions with your Career Coach to help streamline your online presence, polish your portfolio further, prep for interviews, sharpen your networking skills and understand the art of negotiating and accepting offers. By guiding students through the often stressful job hunt, coaches prepare students for each step of the way by building confidence.

Through your weekly sessions with your Career Coach, you'll work closely to further refine your job application assets for the appropriate markets, using the Career Services coursework as help and background. 

Don't forget to review your Career Services policies page! You can find the page here: https://trydesignlab.com/career-services/policies/

Overall, we want to make sure you are aware of the opportunities out there, and that you have the resources and guidance you need to successfully capitalize on those opportunities!

Please note, if your city is not currently on our list of cities that are eligible for our tuition guarantee, we promise to provide you with the same level of support and guidance that we would for any student applying for jobs on our current list of approved cities.
