"Pivoted my career and got hired before completing the program"

Joining Liftyz's product design career accelerator was a game-changer for me. Within just a few months, I transitioned from graphic designer into a UX designer role, thanks to the comprehensive program. Liftyz played a crucial role in helping me change my career path and provided invaluable support throughout the process. Janus and Lesley are experienced and friendly mentors, guiding students in creativity, problem-solving, and human-centered design.

"Saved me at least two years of exploring and learning"

​Janus gave me tips on how to improve my "marketing materials" and gave me a clear outline for the whiteboard challenge. Janus was very supportive throughout the program and got me to think about my career path. I ended up getting two job offers, one from Amazon and one from Goldman Sachs. There's no better investment than the Product Design Career Accelerator program. Taking part in this program has saved me at least two years of exploring and learning. ​

"Gained confidence and polished my responses to various interview questions"

I just signed the job offer! The Liftyz accelerator really brings my job application to another level! The program has cleared all my doubts and fear of applying for UX/product jobs. With the guidance and support I received from this program, I have been encouraged to embark on a multitude of practices that I would have never undertaken on my own through mere online searches.

Throughout 8 weeks, I have updated my entire portfolio and resume with solid feedback, practiced white board challenge and portfolio presentation with my cohort, and also 1-on-1 mock interviews with Janus. Through these practices, I gained confidence and polished my responses to various interview questions, ensuring that I was well-prepared for the real one. Besides, Janus is a super supportive and compassionate UX mentor. She always provides you with professional UX advice and hand-on practice. I wholeheartedly recommend the Liftyz accelerator to anyone seeking to excel in their job search for UX/product designers.

"Landed interviews at J.P. Morgan, Visual Meaning and Pinnacle Sports"

I was feeling very down about my job search, struggling with self-doubt and uncertainty about my CV and portfolio. But then I received well-crafted information and templates, support and encouragement from Janus who helped me review my approach and get me back on track. Thanks to her guidance, I landed interviews at J.P. Morgan, Visual Meaning and Pinnacle Sports. It’s really nice to have Janus as my mentor.

The program provided plenty of resources, and the weekly modules and live coaching sessions were well-structured.

Janus has been knowledgeable and helpful in answering any questions I had about the job market and the interviewing process. I liked how structured and clear the session and feedback were. She provided me with strategies and tips to help me make the best impression on recruiters and also shared with me resources such as a designer resume template. Her encouragement and support were invaluable to the newbie immigrant. She was always willing to offer a listening ear. I strongly recommend Janus to anyone looking for mentorship.

"68% pay increase"

I have accepted a position as a Senior UX Designer with a Fortune 500 financial company in New York with a 68% pay increase! After being laid off last December, I was feeling a bit lost. However, I came across Janus' Instagram profile and learned about Liftyz. The guidance and templates Janus offered helped me create a well-structured portfolio that was well received by hiring managers. Thanks again for the late-night calls last week for interview preparation and salary negotiation. I will definitely miss our weekly check-in sessions.

"These resources at this level of comprehension are quite hard to come by just by googling"

I really enjoy that Janus puts a lot of effort in making the workshops as engaging as possible. She has practical advice on how to land a job and how to become a successful designer. Her feedback are very comprehensive and something that I can use in the future as well even after the program. The career coach sessions with Lesley were a real delight. Her thoughtful and practical feedback, drawn from her success as a senior designer in a well-known company, has been a game-changer for me. Lesley's approachability made the 1:1 sessions comfortable and effective. Moreover, the resources provided by Liftyz were exceptionally valuable. These resources at this level of comprehension are quite hard to come by just by googling. I think they would be very useful even after the program at my future job.
