Success stories

Beginex gave me the chance to work on my design skills in a real-world setting, turning me into a well-rounded UX professional and enabling me to become a Lead UX Designer/Strategist at ADP.
- Andrea Wilhelm, UX Designer/ Strategist at ADP
I gained valuable real-world UX Design and Research experience working on a team, being guided by expert mentors, and interacting with a real client. I also came away with a great case study for my portfolio, which helped me land a UX position.
- Mitchell Wulfman, UX Designer & Researcher at Awesome
The program helped me learn how to better defend design decisions (thanks to feedback from mentors) and communicate findings to stakeholders. With any educational program you get what you put in, and for me it was knowledge validation and confidence to pursue my current position.
- Wendy Chan, Digital Product Design Consultant, UX Team at Coach
Beginex provided me with an excellent opportunity to build leadership skills and gain real-world UX experience. As a result, the work I've done has helped me get hired as a UX designer.
- Victoria Honey, UX/UI designer at Dashlane
Working with a team on a real client project and covering all the key phases of the UX process really helped put me outside of the comfort zone - I learned a great deal and met awesome people along the way.
- Liz, UX Researcher
Working on a real and meaningful client project and receiving feedback from experienced mentors really helped me apply what I learned at Pratt and grow as a UX professional.
