DESIGNED FOR YOUR PATH
We specialize our accelerator based on your needs
Don't pay anything until you've already landed a position at a top technology company.
Focus on what you need help with in order to land your dream job. We’re in your corner.
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.
DON'T PAY UNTIL YOU GET PAID
There is no upfront cost or tuition required to enroll in Pathrise; we only get paid when you do. After you've been hired and start work, you'll pay back 9% of your first year's income over 6 months. We'll make sure you don't pay anything, even from your current job or income, until you move on to your next step.
Alternatively, you have the option to pay upfront instead of signing an income share agreement. The upfront tuition of the program is $5500, and fellows who decide to fulfill tuition upfront still receive both the 14-day trial and 12-month placement guarantees.
WE GET RESULTS
Proven to get you hired and make you more money
increase in interview scores
above industry average compensation
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 accessible and 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 and pay nothing.
Our comprehensive curriculum covers both career and design skills
Your career advisor 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 advisor, you will also be assigned an industry advisor 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.
Understand who looks at your design portfolio, when, and why. Then, we help you 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's behind hiring teams’ goals when assessing a whiteboard challenge in order to apply a framework to 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 advisor 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 advisor will help you negotiate for more money and better benefits and leverage our growing network of fellows.
Additional curriculum helps you navigate everything from handking contract work to how to advocate for yourself as a designer in an engineering org.
After the first 8 weeks, the program continues. We continue to host additional workshops and provide 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 advisor 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 ADVISOR SPOTLIGHT
Bryce was a product designer at Airbnb for 2 years where he became a “Swiss Army Knife” working both in the marketing-side with the Art Department, and product-side with Airbnb Experiences. Before that, he co-founded Nubko, a creative collaboration startup. He also worked as a graphic designer for a handful of clients, including celebrity chef Guy Fieri.
Drawing from all the portfolio reviews, designer case studies, and design projects that he's worked on and given out from both sides of the table, Bryce helps students enter into the still-developing world of design.
