Employers these days require more than just a Bachelor’s degree when they hire. They look at skills and experience, often demonstrated through the "right" internships. But students often don’t realize this until it’s far too late.
of grads had landed jobs prior to graduation. (Roughly 20% had received offers prior to senior year.)
of grads were unemployed after graduation. It took roughly 8 months for most grads to land a job.
of grads accepted jobs that didn't require a college degree (think retail, restaurants, gig economy jobs).
Parents and students are generally unaware of what companies look for these days, how competitive the hiring process can be, and the career paths of tomorrow's workforce.
This has led to students graduating without the skills and experience to compete. COVID-19 has accelerated digital transformation plans by 6 years.

Here's what some of our PathMatch clients have to say about their experience
After deciding finance wasn’t the right path, I had no clue what I’d be interested in. My mom was referred to PathMatch by a friend and signed me up. Within the first month, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. After 4 months, I had 3 internship offers to choose from. I was so much more prepared than my friends for any interview scenario. Thanks PathMatch!
I’ve spent the past 2 years in the PathMatch Launch program and landed two summer internships with Fortune 100 companies. I’m hoping for a return offer which will make my senior year far less stressful.
In just 3 months after working with PathMatch, I had clarity on what I wanted to do, applied to 84 positions, interviewed with 16 companies, and received 4 offers. PathMatch helped me prepare better than I ever could have done on my own.
Working with PathMatch = $95K offer at Accenture. Need I say more?
I switched majors three times during Freshman year and experienced some serious anxiety trying to figure out what I wanted to do. My mom signed me up for PathMatch Accelerate. Within 3 weeks, I had figured out exactly what I wanted to do, switched majors, and had a plan. Through working with PathMatch, I landed a coveted internship as a Sophomore.
Freshman year is overwhelming and I’m so glad I had PathMatch to keep me on track. From switching majors, picking classes, knowing what clubs to join and how to start networking, PathMatch gave me support that my advisor couldn’t give. I even landed an internship with their help.
1 hour per week. Students don't dedicate time to PathMatch. They dedicate time to career planning and their internship/job search through guidance, resources. accountability and coaching.
In an ideal world, yes. But the truth is, career center advisors often lack corporate experience and in-depth knowledge about modern career paths and companies that hire, having never worked outside of academia. PathMatch exists to fill in these gaps. Our trained career coaches have years of experience in recruiting, industry and path-specific knowledge and connections, and a 100% success rate in placing students at top companies. Because PathMatch works with students at schools around the country, our clients benefit from getting specific advice to help them compete nationally. Most advisors at universities don’t have this purview.
We work with college students of all years, but the earlier a student starts, the better. It's a compounding effect; if you don't have an internship freshman year, it's harder to get one sophomore year, if you don't have one sophomore year, it's harder to get one junior year, and so on and so forth up to getting a job post-graduation.
The Concierge plan is the best to get the most out of our program as it includes one-on-one coaching and personalized internship & job matching, but the level of guidance provided at each level is priceless. If you're unsure, we recommend starting with the Premium plan and seeing how you like it. You can always upgrade or downgrade after each month and cancel anytime.
PathMatch is made for all majors, and more importantly, all in-demand careers! We encourage our students to think career-first instead of major-first.
