"I'm very thankful for the bootcamp, as I landed a UX internship in Downtown LA shortly after, and I'm ecstatic over how much the bootcamp has helped me move beyond getting just my foot in the door. I am able to do far more than many of the other interns who went to other schools can do, and I have no hesitation in saying so. ITHAKAI has done wonders and I can only take pride in being a part of the early days that gave me such a leg up."

Alonso Loera, UX Designer at rhubarb studios

"I am writing this review at my office as a UX designer in the headquarter of AT&T. I am very grateful to get this job offer after the very diverse and solid UX training at ITHAKAI. The most important thing I learn is to do as much as we can and we will be beyond how good we think we could be. As a guy with a lot of different UX training experience, I definitely recommend ITHAKAI because it’s not just a school but a good start point in your career."
