On March 25, 2021 1:1 career coaching and the careers community channel in Student Hub will be discontinued. Career events will be discontinued on February 28, 2021. Recordings of past career events will remain viewable on our YouTube channel. The Career Resources Portal, as well as any Career projects that are part of your Nanodegree program, will remain as career resources. Click here for more information about the discontinuation.
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 Services 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.
If you have any questions about whether your Nanodegree program is introductory, please write in to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
