[UX Resources] 🥾 UX Bootcamps
📌 Note: For some people, it makes sense to go into one, but for some, it doesn't. A boot camp may give you a good high-level overview of the basics if you are just starting out, but the number of "cloned" candidates it makes it harder for graduates to stand out. So, do not expect that finishing a boot camp will land you a job, you will have to do more than that and be more creative.
There was a very interesting comment that I heard from a UX director who was hiring for dozens of UX roles, she said that when she saw a boot camp in the Education section on the resume, she immediately dismissed those applications. There were just too many applications that had almost identical shallow portfolio work.
Also, I've heard from many boot camp graduates that they were "fooled" by creating a perception that they would easily get a job after graduating, and it was not the case, at all. Keep this in mind.
