"Between our evolving curriculum and online platform, fantastic mentors, and our student vetting process, we are confident that we are developing the next generation’s top tier design talent."
NEW YORK (PRWEB) September 12, 2018
Designlab Learning Inc., an intensive online design program built around 1-on-1 mentorship, is launching their Talent Network, a program that connects its graduates with full-time and freelance opportunities at top companies, like Big Spaceship, TBWA, VML, and Intrepid, an Accenture agency.
The Talent Network provides job opportunities for graduates of Designlab’s flagship program, UX Academy, a 500-hour course that teaches a comprehensive UX/UI curriculum. Graduates exit the program with a portfolio suited to junior product design roles. The Talent Network has already successfully placed students all over the world at top companies to further their new product design careers, including TBWA Singapore, Big Spaceship in NYC, and Intrepid in Boston.
Designlab is significantly more affordable than its leading competitors, creating more diversity in their enrollment. In a recent UX Academy cohort, 75% of enrolled students were people of color, 70% were women, and 70% were living outside of major metropolitan areas.
“Between our evolving curriculum and online platform, fantastic mentors, and our student vetting process, we are confident that we are developing the next generation’s top tier design talent. Now that we’re working with companies that are at the cutting-edge of design, we’re excited to continue to provide opportunities to our community of designers,” said Harish Venkatesan, CEO of Designlab.
“There are ample ways for partners to get involved with Designlab, from hiring our designers to collaborating on our curriculum, or working on other initiatives like scholarships, events, and design challenges.”
Designlab is currently accepting new hiring partners to join the Talent Network. For more information, visit https://trydesignlab.com/talent/.
