Design Fellow Spotlight

Pathrise fellow Vivian smiling

I had no idea where to start with my job search, despite being a really driven person. I felt really disconnected and demotivated but my mentor brought everything back into perspective. They gave me confidence to light that fire inside of me again.

I’m eternally grateful for the support and encouragement that Pathrise has given me! One dream down, many more to come.

Don't pay until you get paid

out of pocket

There is no upfront cost required to enroll in Pathrise; we only get paid when you do. The program is based on an income share agreement. The way it works is only after you get hired, you pay back a small percentage of your income for a limited time as you earn it. As part of the agreement, you don't pay anything, even from your current job or income, until you get paid from your new job first.



The first two weeks of Pathrise are completely free with no income share agreement required.



If you aren't placed within 12 months, then you can waive your income share and pay nothing.
