I’m going to let you in on a little secret:

There’s a damn good chance your portfolio — no matter how visually impressive or cleverly worded it may be — is working against you.

It’s the reason you’re not getting messages from recruiters.

It’s the reason those job applications or messages you’ve sent to recruiters seem to have disappeared into the void.

It’s the reason prospective clients suddenly go dark on you and stop responding to your calls and emails.

In my nearly 30-year career, I’ve hired plenty of UXers and Designers; for my own company and for a dozen other organizations who built UX practices from the ground up.  And what I’ve seen over the years, then and now, is that the formats and presentations 98% of people use for their UX portfolios actually hide the things that truly make them excellent candidates.

Things I often only discovered after hitting the wall and forcing myself to spend a lot of time I didn’t really have revisiting those portfolios in depth, digging deep into navigation and case studies.

In any event, I felt like something needed to be done — specifically, this course.

A path to quickly illustrate these critical mistakes and show you a better, more effective way to structure and present your work and your value — to recruiters, hiring managers, employers and prospective clients.

I’m inviting you to forget whatever you’ve been told about how to create an online portfolio.

Because if it’s anything like the hundreds I’ve seen, you’re not doing yourself any favors.

So in this course, across 14 lectures, I’m going to give you everything you need to do it better, from the perspective of the person doing the hiring.

Whether that person is a recruiter, an HR or company exec, or a prospective client looking for freelance help, I’m going to walk you through what works and what doesn’t, with real-world examples.

I’m going to show you why you’re making it harder for yourself to get noticed and get hired. Because even if your work itself is spectacular (which I’m sure it is), I have no doubt you’re making many of the same mistakes I’ve seen thus far in my own recruiting endeavors.

More importantly, I’ll show you exactly what you should be doing instead, from the very first screen.

Who this course is for:

  • UXers, Designers and Developers looking to land a UX/Design job…or freelancers looking to land their next big client.

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Alica Cverdeľová

    I love this course, Angela explained it very easily and clearly from the beginning, but I loved her 1 minute final videos, which ended later: What a pity.
    BUT I felt a little disappointed now with the project Day 39/40. Where I was maximally lost, I could not come out of where to look for anything and it was poorly explained and the biggest mistake was that there were no videos with explanations, I think it was quite a complicated project where many things were used and no explanation, only the final results. And they carried a few things in the projects before, so I had her project run once and it showed her the mistake as well as me, so in that case you have to leave it at that and what else is a shame. It’s hard to do a project when you don’t see what’s going on there.
    I’m a little worried about the next few weeks, and I hope it won’t be a waste of time.

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
