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.

Design Mentor Spotlight

Pathrise Mentor Imani Joy

Imani was a lead UX design instructor at General Assembly, where she delivered over 800 hours of in-classroom instruction and one-on-one mentoring. Before that, she was one of the first few designers at a growth-stage e-commerce and media startup called Darby Smart, where she led design on the iOS app and core website.

Drawing from all the portfolio reviews, designer case studies, and design projects that she's worked on and given out from both sides of the table, Imani has helped designers get jobs at companies like Apple, IBM and more.

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 9% of one year's income 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.

Alternatively, instead of an income share agreement, you can make an upfront deposit of $7000, while still getting a placement guarantee.



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.
