I just graduated from a UX bootcamp since I was not able to afford any type of UX degree. The bootcamp was overall a good experience but the market is so competitive right now and it seems like university grads have a higher chance in getting a job, knowledge wise, also project wise - they got pretty cool projects on their portfolios unlike a basic app/web design.
Also when it comes to internships, most FAANG companies will hire them compared to a bootcamp grad. They got more options which is nice for them but sucks for me lol
I’m not going to get a degree anytime soon, but I was just wondering what can I learn in the meantime to upskill myself? What type of projects should I add to my portfolio? So far I have two client projects and a website redesign.
Anyone that did a HCI degree, what interesting courses did you learn?
