Students are getting hired

Our material is designed hand-in-hand with hiring managers. Which means our students are getting jobs when they finish. Some have transitioned to new roles at their current companies. Some have been hired into new teams at new companies. Still others now feel confident in their current jobs.

Many of us know what it’s like to be the only writer at a company where “UX” is a newfangled term—now these students are armed and ready to transform  their product content!

I'm speaking to you now from the end of a great first day in my UX writing job

I really enjoyed the course and actually I'm speaking to you now from the end of a great first day in my first proper UX writing job. A lot of the course content really emboldened me to talk confidently in interviews with product people. It helped me to formalise and structure a lot of the practical learning I'd picked up from working hands on with UX designers on previous projects.

I've gained a stronger, more confident voice


profile-pic

I was new to the concept of writing for digital products. I signed up for the Fundamentals course a couple of months into my new role. The course connected many dots for me and helped steer my thinking and planning. Through the practice projects and feedback, I began to hone my skills. I've gained a stronger, more confident voice as a product designer since taking the course.

UX Writing Fundamentals allowed me to talk about the certificate program in interviews, positioning myself as a well-rounded writer.

Scott Sammons Sr Consultant (writer) w Bridge Partners

This is a very unique course.


profile-pic

I think this is a very unique course. I haven’t been able to find any articles or other content that addresses this intersection of doc writing and UX writing. And tech writers are writing UI text and need support.

Holly Jauch Sr. Technical Writer & Editor at Splunk

I have learned a lot.

I’m planning on putting together a portfolio for UX writing. I have learned a lot about UX writing best practices, and how to do comprehensive research to advocate for the users.

Kyra Lee Technical Writer at Magnetic Forensics

I wish I took this sooner.

I wish I took this course sooner. There is a lot of concrete information that as UX writers we are expected to learn on our own. This would have helped tremendously!

Nerie Ohana Content Designer at Microsoft

An important step in my career evolution


profile-pic

Taking the Fundamentals course was an important step in my career evolution from Product Manager to UX Content Strategist. I just booked a project I'm really excited about -- and they found me in your Certified UX Writers directory. Looking forward to taking another course soon!

The material is rich, relevant, challenging, and super fun


profile-pic

I am a veteran copywriter obsessed with UX and the entire process of crafting easy, delightful, and satisfying customer journeys. Last year, I completed a UX Design course at General Assembly. Now, I'm building on that foundation with your UX Writing Fundamentals course. The material is rich, relevant, challenging, and super fun. I can't wait to see how my portfolio piece turns out — and add UX Writer to my resume!

I now feel confident and legitimate as a UX writer


profile-pic

I want to congratulate you for the excellent and challenging class you put together, I learned so much within 3 months and now feel confident and legitimate as a UX writer. The class and project reviews are good training and the final project was a real challenge! Bobbie's feedback was very thorough and helpful ... I am happy and proud to be part of the UXWC community and looking forward to learning more every day 😉

Aude Lerner UX Writer, EasyMeeting

This is as good as GOLD


profile-pic

This course and my overall experience with the Writer's Collective have given me great confidence in my abilities as a UX Writer, beyond standard copywriting. And it continues to do so via the Slack groups which in just moments after first checking-in gave me ideas on how I can continue to 'up my game'. To me, this is as good as GOLD, and with a bit of o' luck, it will help me get exactly where I want to go.

I would 100% recommend this course


profile-pic

I would 100% recommend this course for anyone looking to get a more structured background UX writing. As a baby UX writer, there's plenty to learn on Medium and in other articles, but I finally got to the point that cobbling together a Medium education wasn't enough, and I wanted something organized and step-by-step. This course focuses on every aspect of being a UX writer and working on a team--not just the writing. I was able to apply things from the course into my work developing a product the very next day. Now that I've completed this course, I feel way more confident in working on a design team, and I have a solid base to continue to learn and contribute to this field.

I needed to validate the choices I was making


profile-pic

I work at a fintech startup and I took this course because, as a UX Writer in South Africa, I felt like I was working in a vacuum. I needed to validate the choices I had made. The UX Writers Collective helped me do just that. It taught me how to back up my choices when I advocate for the voice of the customer.

Ryan Jales UX Writer, Luno

I had no idea I could learn so much in such a short time


profile-pic

When I started the course I had no idea I could learn so much in such a short time. I work as a UX Designer and I have been using the knowledge I gained from you on my projects before I even finished the course. What makes this course so special is that it's not just about reading articles, but we also got a chance to practice what we learned on multiple assignments. All the assignments were very useful and fun and the feedback was always very constructive and individual with concrete suggestions for improvement. Getting this kind of feedback from professional UX Writers is invaluable. I write copy for my projects with much more confidence now than I did before. Thank you so much for all your valuable feedback, suggestions for improvement, and support.
