No need to uproot your life to change it. Schedule sessions that fit into your busy life.
With Pathrise, ensure that you'll be able to start building real world experience fast.
Our comprehensive program covers both career and design skills
Your career mentor will be your main point of contact throughout Pathrise, extensively trained and equipped with research into industry recruiting and hiring.
In addition to your career mentor, you will also be assigned an industry mentor who is an experienced designer at a top tech company.
We asked recruiters how to create a resume and portfolio destined for success. We'll teach you the best strategies we know to optimize everything.
Learn who looks at your design portfolio, when, and why and then work with your mentor to optimize every piece of content in your portfolio and personal brand.
Pathrise will help you source opportunities and network effectively by breaking down tactics that have been tested for hundreds of fellows before.
Learn what hiring teams are looking for when assessing a whiteboard challenge and how to apply frameworks that will help you succeed at challenges of any length.
Through our behavioral matrix, we'll teach you how to nail your elevator pitch and draft answers to questions we predict with data.
We teach you a unique approach to take for each of the different types of evaluations design teams utilize in their interview processes.
Experience rigorous mock interview sessions as well as utilize weekly reflections with your mentor to improve after your real interviews.
Master new tools and sharpen existing skills, including how to incorporate your research and data into case studies and interview answers.
For each offer you get, your mentor will help you negotiate for more money and better benefits and leverage our growing network of fellows.
Additional program helps you navigate everything from handling contract work to advocating for yourself as a designer in an engineering org.
After the first 8 weeks, the program continues. We continue to host additional workshops and support you with weekly 1-on-1s until you land a job that you're satisfied with. We don't think about Pathrise like a course that's done after you take it - we only consider ourselves successful when you have a signed offer in hand!
Design Fellow Spotlight
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
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
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 $5500, 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.
