I felt the need to come back and review Actualize post-graduation, and postgraduate initiative! I'm glad that I stand by my initial 5-star review - Actualize was a great decision. I have some friends who have taken different programs and who are still looking for work, months after graduation. While it's not a quick process, nor is it easy, Actualize truly supports its students with resume review, LinkedIn profile review, job search, and moral support. During this time you also work on a project with fellow students to keep your skills sharp and add to your portfolio. If I could go back in time, I would make this same choice for school - and I don't say that often! I am two months into a job that I LOVE - Web Developer for a start-up in Chicago, and I couldn't be happier. Thanks Actualize!
