Why We Created This

Are you...

  • An incoming college Freshman (or parent of one)?
  • Not sure what career path is right?
  • Feeling a little anxiety about what path to choose and how you’ll land a job in the future?
  • Changing your mind on what you want to do because of COVID-19?

If you answered yes to all of these, you’re not alone. But don’t worry, PathMatch can help.

PathMatch has helped thousands of students select the best matched career path and more importantly has helped students take the steps needed to build the appropriate skills and experience required these days by employers when selecting candidates for internships and entry-level jobs.

PathMatch’s 5-week Virtual Career Accelerator for Incoming Freshmen helps students determine their ideal career path, learn valuable skills early on, and position their resume for Freshman Summer internships, so they are top candidates for Sophomore and Junior Summer Internships, which in turn helps them land jobs prior to senior year. Want to give yourself or your son/daughter the best chance at a brighter future?

Our next cohort starts on July 6th. Only 8 spots left!

What’s going on? A major skills gap between what students know and what companies need them to know.

  • More and more people are graduating college each year (~2 million in 2020)
  • Companies have automated most of their basic functions, previously given to entry-level hires
  • Hiring requirements for new grads and interns are more demanding than ever
  • Each year, roughly 1 million internships are offered to the 19 million college students

It’s much tougher to do if you don’t decide early on. But, students who work with PathMatch prior to Freshman year have a 95% higher chance of landing an internship Freshman summer due to knowledge gained through our programs.

The workforce is evolving at a rapid pace and everything starts much earlier these days. Students have to have a clear understanding of what they want to do by the time they get to college so they can select their classes strategically, learn the appropriate skills, and network to get in front of companies.

Best Thing I've Done

This program was worth every penny. PathMatch's expertise is more than I could have ever imagined. I learned so much from this and have a much better idea of what I want to do. I came into the program knowing nothing, and came out with clear goals, a purpose and immense confidence in myself. Highly recommend.

A wealth of knowledge

My daughter is a senior in high school who had already been accepted to her top schools, but was struggling to make a decision given what's going on. Her classes ended in late April and she had nothing to do and Covid has prevented any socializing. I thought she'd go crazy after about a week so I signed her up for this boot camp. She spent a few hours weekly engaging in workshops, listening to speakers, watching video content, and speaking with a career coach. The program gave her clarity on what she wants to pursue. She has now made a decision on where she wants to go to school and I couldn't be happier that she has a newfound confidence in, and passion for her future!

From prepping for college to prepping for my career

All my life I have been prepping to get into college. From what AP classes I take to what extracurriculars I partake in, every decision has been based on what looks good on a college application. Once I was accepted to my dream school, I thought I could finally breathe a sigh of relief... but then came the stress of having to soon choose a major and pick a career. I didn't like being faced with such a permanent decision, and I constantly worried over making the wrong choice. This program has more than alleviated these anxieties. Not only did Nancy and her team make sure to prioritize my interests and help me look at my own strengths to find the career that best suited me, my PathMatch coach also helped me plan my major and class schedule to best maximize my time in college.

This should be required for all students

After I found out where I got admitted, I started freaking out about what I actually wanted to do. Heading off to college is exciting and scary, especially given what's going on. PathMatch made things really clear for me and eased my anxiety. Now I have a Linkedin profile and a strong resume I can add to throughout my college career. I now have an idea of what my education can actually do for me. My reason for giving it 4 stars is because I didn't hit it off with career coach, who's not there anymore. But, other than that, I got a lot out of the program.

Lots of Help

My Freshman year honestly felt like a blur at the start and I had no idea what I wanted to even study. I went through this program in January and it was so helpful. PathMatch helped me make sense of all the different opportunities I have and showed me a path I'm actually super excited to follow!
