While the majority of our Nanodegree programs do equip graduates with the skills to pursue a new job, enrollment in any of our foundations or introductory Nanodegree programs alone does not prepare you for a job.
There are students who have gotten roles after completing an introductory Nanodegree program, but typically when combined with previous technical experience and were up-skilling rather than making a career change.
To maximize your chances of leveraging the skills and portfolio you gain through completing a Nanodegree program, proactivity is key. Complete the Career projects available in your Nanodegree program. Know that Udacity is here to support you, whether you’re beginning a job search, making a career change, or gaining new skills for your current role.
