The Company

At Pathstream, our mission is to create the most accessible and effective career pathways to high quality jobs in the modern economy. We exist to unlock individual potential and economic opportunity.

The job you hold affects almost every aspect of your life, from your earnings to the way you spend the majority of your waking hours. Problem is, landing one’s first “good job”, one that pays over $50k/year, is financially stable, and provides opportunity for career progression and mobility, is incredibly difficult, stressful, and expensive; most individuals struggle to find the guidance, supported learning experience, and direct connection to employers they need. Every day, countless people apply to hundreds of jobs with little to no understanding of what employers are looking for and how to break into a higher income field of work; millions of hopefuls are rejected every day because they didn’t have the right guidance, skills, or networks.

Enter Pathstream. We believe education is the most important thing in the world. Making a life changing career pivot is too important to go through alone. That’s why we’re building the #1 career starting experience for working adults, replacing a fragmented and isolated journey into one that’s streamlined, supported, and effective at unlocking human potential. Pathstream is the place to go when you’re ready to start into the career you deserve.
