Whether you’re trying to break into the field, land freelance clients, or secure a higher-paying job: in-demand skills and a great portfolio will help you get there.Learn More
Instructional designers without strong portfolios often feel frustrated and overwhelmed when searching for jobs or clients. There's a lot of competition—and, without a strong portfolio, it's tough to set yourself apart from the crowd.
When you do have a great portfolio, you don't have to worry about finding opportunities. Landing interviews becomes the norm, and clients come to you to see if you're available for freelance work.
Better yet, a great portfolio establishes you in the field and builds your credibility. It shows off your skills and helps you get noticed. In short, it makes landing ID opportunities easier than ever before.
It's so much harder to build your skills and create a great portfolio without feedback from experienced instructional designers, and hiring managers can tell the difference between great portfolios and "okay" portfolios.
That's why the bootcamp includes in-depth, actionable feedback on all of your portfolio deliverables. We'll help you improve your skills, create impressive projects, and demand professional-grade salaries and rates.
You're not in this alone, and everyone in the bootcamp does their best to help their peers. When you join, you can network with bootcampers who work at top companies, get support from people who have completed their portfolios, and build long-lasting professional relationships that will elevate your career.
It can be tough struggling with new concepts and not being able to ask questions. Sometimes, things are explained more easily on a call.
That's why the bootcamp includes 1-on-1 meetings and weekly workshops for you to get personalized feedback, coaching, and support from Devlin and his team. We'll help you achieve your goals faster and move past roadblocks in no time.
University programs cover the theory, but how do you prepare yourself for the real tasks that instructional designers perform on a daily basis?
The bootcamp gives you hands-on experience with the most in-demand tools in the industry.
Rather than bombard you with hour-long lectures, the bootcamp includes bite-sized videos that give you exactly what you need to start building, iterating, and collecting feedback.
Many bootcampers land opportunities before they complete their portfolios due to the skills and process that they learn.
Visual design can be difficult, especially if you're not graphically trained.
However, people make snap judgments based on how things look and feel. If your portfolio or projects are not up-to-par visually, then it can have a drastic impact on your search for new opportunities.
That's why we prepare you to design beautiful learning experiences: we'll help you create a mood board, style guide, and visual mockups, and we'll give you in-depth feedback every step of the way.
Most instructional design projects are hidden behind NDAs, and if you're just getting started, then it's hard to come up with good project ideas.
The bootcamp will help you create a project that shows off the full range of your in-demand instructional design skills and solves a real-world problem.
This project will show employers and clients that you know your stuff, and it will give you a strong framework that you can use to ace interviews and land work.
If you want to stand out in the market and land great opportunities, then a certificate isn't going to do much for you.
Employers and potential clients care about your skillset and the quality of work that you can do. Nothing speaks to this better than a high-end portfolio.
That's why, in the bootcamp, we'll help you create a visually appealing portfolio full of projects that solve real problems. This puts you leagues ahead of people relying on a certificate to get a job.
Once you've done the hard work and created your portfolio, we'll help you present your past experience in instructional design terms and optimize your LinkedIn and resume accordingly.
This will help you secure a steady flow of interviews, and we'll also help you prepare for interview day and land competitive offers.
When it's time to land paid work, you can leverage our industry connections to get referrals to some of the world's top companies.
