Are you unemployed in Germany and thinking about a career change into tech?

Maybe you’ve always dreamt of a job that’s both creative and fulfilling.

If this sounds like you, check out this recording of a CareerFoundry live event.

We were joined by CareerFoundry UI design graduate Florian Bölter who is now the Product Design Lead at the streaming platform Heygo.

Florian explained how he used the Bildungsgutschein* he received from the German government to become a fully-fledged UI designer free of charge in a matter of months!

Florian also shared his background in publishing and product management and how he eventually discovered his passion for design.
