Foundry College further expands its suite of support for learners

San Francisco — In another move to further expand its full suite of support for learners, Foundry College has partnered with Pathrise, an online mentorship and advice program for tech and other professionals. Customized services provided to Foundry College learners by Pathrise will complement services already available to students, which include one-on-one coaching sessions, access to academic mentors, job club participation, and more. These services, along with those of Pathrise, are provided at no cost to the learner.

Pathrise’s proprietary strategies, developed based on their extensive internal data, help job seekers land their next job. Pathrise services available to Foundry College learners include 1:1 mentorships, resume review, job search strategies, and advice, as well as customized access to additional resources.

“Foundry College’s learners are well-equipped with durable professional skills that have prepared them to be excellent employees,” said Dr. Akiba Covitz, president and CEO of Foundry College. “By partnering with Pathrise, Foundry’s learners will be able to take their job search skills and practices to the next level, preparing them to access opportunities with a wide range of companies, from early-stage startups to top tech firms.”

The first graduates of Foundry College programs will be poised to begin their job searches this spring after earning credentialed certificates in either Salesforce administration or project management.

“Pathrise is excited to partner with Foundry College and their learners,” said Kevin Wu, CEO and career mentor at Pathrise. “Job seekers will be equipped with exclusive job search data, strategies, and mentorship from top industry professionals.”
