Pathrise Fellowship

What is Pathrise

Pathrise(YC W18) invests in undervalued university students or young professionals by coaching them to get a competitive internship or job. The program is completely free upfront. In exchange, Pathrise fellows agree to pay back a share of their first year's salary if and only if they get hired.

Pathrise is based on insights from hundreds of hiring managers in tech; this means everyone from Google recruiters to startup CEOs. We've been featured in TechCrunch, VentureBeat, EdSurge, and The Atlantic as the "Y Combinator for your career." To date, we've worked with over 130 fellows and have helped them land offers at Facebook, Uber, Google, Oath, Amazon, and other top companies or exciting startups.

About the Fellowship

The Pathrise Fellowship is a program for students and new grads that helps you land the best job or internship possible in tech.

During the fellowship, you receive 1-on-1 mentorship from experienced industry engineers, analysts, managers, and recruiters. You learn systems to attract the attention of any company you want, find out insider information on how to ace your interviews, and more. We even directly refer you to companies in our network until you find a job you love.
