1-on-1 Personalization

Meet with your advisor, who works with you 1-on-1 every week until you get hired at a top tech company.



We've always shared our learnings about the job search transparently, and in the same spirit, we've made the first two weeks of Pathrise completely free to anybody who signs up. Now, you can attend the first two weeks of classes and 1-on-1s with zero commitment.



We place 98% of our fellows within 12 months, with average placement times of 4-5 months. As a promise to all Pathrise fellows, if you join and aren't hired within 12 months of starting Pathrise, then we will give you the option to waive 100% of tuition.


We've helped all types of students launch their careers

Kajol Patel

Cloud Support Associate

“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).”

Yu Wang

Research Engineer

“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.”

Kimberly Lo

Software Engineering Intern

“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.

You probably have some questions — we have answers

Is Pathrise really worth it?

We understand that an income share or tuition 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 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 earnings way more than what you might pay.

How much of a time commitment is the accelerator?

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.

Can I focus more on the topics that are the most helpful to me?

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.
