OUR FELLOWS US
We've helped all types of students launch their careers
“I wanted a support system and Pathrise was everything I could have asked for. My advisors helped me accomplish what would have taken me 3 years alone in less than 3 months.”
“My advisor and I had personalized sessions and plans that we came up with together before each interview. He truly went above and beyond, teaching me everything from how to best convey my work to any technical concepts I needed (he even re-taught me recursion from scratch).”
“Before Pathrise, I had applied to hundreds of companies online, heard back less than ten times, and received zero onsites. I joined Pathrise and landed two big offers I could never have even dreamed about before.”
“I was nervous that my past projects weren't good enough or that I wasn't describing them right. My mentor's help with my behavioral matrix helped me find a level of depth in the stuff I've worked on that surprised even me!”
We've worked with over a hundred fellows and counting. Read their stories here.

A general overview of our core modules and schedule
You'll kick off your fellowship by meeting your industry advisor. He or she will be your main point of contact throughout the Pathrise fellowship, but you'll also work with many other experts that specialize in topics like networking, interviewing and more.
We asked recruiters across every industry how to create a resume and portfolio destined for success. We'll teach you the best strategies we know and help you ruthlessly optimize everything from what you say to how you say it. You'll be ready to start applying for companies in our internal network within the first 2 weeks of the program.
Pathrise will help you build a powerful network that consists of our alumni, leaders and hiring managers. In a few cases, we'll even directly introduce you to companies and past fellows in our network who will give you an internal referral to open positions.
As you start interviewing, your Pathrise advisor will help you prepare for what to expect with rigorous mock interview sessions. We'll teach you how to nail your elevator pitch and clearly articulate your story. If you expect coding, design, case study or market sizing questions, your advisor will specifically invest time in training you on how to ace even the hardest of problem-solving challenges.
If you need additional experience, we work with you on a hands-on project based on input from hundreds of hiring managers on what they like to see in their candidates. If you already have great projects, we'll help you expand, polish and present them in the most impressive way possible.
For each offer you get, your advisor will help you negotiate for more money and better benefits. We've been through the process over and over again, on both sides of the table, so you can be sure we'll get you the best offer possible. Even after you've signed a final offer, you'll always be able to leverage our growing network of fellows.

You probably have some questions — we have answers
We understand that 9% is a big commitment, but we have to emphasize that every fellow that participates in Pathrise improves their job seeking prospects by astronomically more than just 9%. Beyond just getting you better opportunities with higher salaries, our negotiation advice alone can account for a salary increase of over 10%. Every single part of our program, from teaching you how to do outreach that will 4X your response rate (5% to 20%) to interview preparation that improves your coding test scores by at least 50%, is designed to statistically improve your job prospects way more than what you commit in return.
Though the specific timing varies for each individual, you can expect the Pathrise program to take 10 hours a week until you get hired (including your actual interviews). Most of our fellows apply for positions, interview, hear back and sign a final offer within 3 months, but we are willing to support you for as long as you need to get hired, as long as you are still committed. We expect our fellows to be consistently committed to the program, but are happy to be flexible during hectic times, like before a big exam or project deadline.
Of course! The Pathrise program is completely personalized to your unique situation. Because our fellows have ranged from undergrads looking for their first job to PhDs looking to enter a specific industry, we heavily modify the curriculum to suit individual circumstances. We never give you busywork. Instead, we invest that saved time into helping you with the other parts of the job seeking process you could use more help with.
