  • (1888PressRelease) March 19, 2014 - Providing hands-on training, CareerFoundry transforms its students into job-ready applicants, with a focus on real one-to-one contact with mentors and in the supportive setting of an online student community. Students are led through a three-month training program in UX & UI Design or Web Development (, meeting weekly with their personal expert mentor, learning from online course materials and receiving regular feedback. Upon finishing the course each student has a completed portfolio and is introduced to CareerFoundry's recruitment partners, a list headlined by international firm Urban Linker from Paris (, as well as Europe's all-star accelerator Startupbootcamp, Berlin's famous ipotentials, and others. CareerFoundry are launching students onto the tech scene, ready to begin their own startup adventure. CareerFoundry CEO Raffaela Rein says:

    "Technology industries are booming, but there is not a single vocational education provider for tech, online. CareerFoundry is the first career accelerator and online vocational education provider for the digital economy to helps students go from zero to job ready in just three months."

    CareerFoundry's belief in the role of its mentors is founded on extensive research of education studies and the edtech space. According to Blooms 2 Sigma Problem ( one-on-one tutoring has a far larger positive impact on the student's learning than a more traditional 'teacher and class' dynamic. CareerFoundry has tested this theory on over 250 students worldwide, with 70% of those who have gone through the programs landing a job in their chosen field. In the use of its mentors CareerFoundry is harnessing world-class talent and setting the standard in online education. Rein says:

    "We've seen this data reflected in our tests from day one. The differences between self-taught vs classrooms vs mentors were astonishing and we chose to build around what was clearly the most effective way to learn. We were originally concerned it wouldn't be possible to translate this to an elearning platform, but our data so far shows unprecedented success."
