"I have seen firsthand how CodePath opens doors for so many underrepresented students who have the impression that a career in tech is an attainable goal. I am excited to play a role in helping the organization achieve its ambitious -- and crucially important -- mission to support a more diverse group of computer science students and software engineers."

"We saw the CodePath Virtual Career Fair as a great opportunity for exposure and continuing to build our brand equity across US campuses, particularly with diverse populations. It allows us to have multiple touchpoints with students to build connections and further promote EDG, the brand of MathWorks as an inclusive and welcoming workplace for underrepresented individuals."

A Selection of Student Success Stories
“I got my very first internship offer from Intuit! Thank you so much for everything you did for us and putting on such an awesome career fair. I’m so excited and I couldn’t have done it without your help.”
“I attended the VCF and had the opportunity to meet with 21 top tech companies, 9 of those being in dedicated 1:1 sessions. I had about an 85% success rate in actually hearing back from recruiters, which resulted in countless opportunities for technical interviews. Next Summer, I am going to join DICK'S Sporting Goods as a Software Engineering Intern!”
"I am thrilled to announce that I have accepted an offer from UnitedHealth Group for Optum Technology Development Program Internship. I would like to thank CodePath for helping with preparations for technical interviews and building on my professional development."
“I have two offers now! One with Microsoft and another with Google. This would not be possible without CodePath, so thanks. You guys have changed my life, not an exaggeration whatsoever.”
“I participated in the January 2021 VCF and Verisk Analytics made me an offer for their ISO Technology Developer role in NJ. Thank you to the CodePath team! Y'all made it possible."
“Thanks to CodePath’s Virtual Career Fair, I was able to put myself out there and obtain my very first internship from UnitedHealth Group! I would definitely recommend CodePath to any of my friends trying to gain valuable skills in the industry."
“I got two internship offers because of CodePath. I accepted an internship with FactSet and am super excited to begin working there. I had watched a recorded information session, and attended a 10 min one on one. Thank you so much for a great career fair and the ability to interact with and talk with recruiters!"
"I'd like to personally thank CodePath for being such a great organization and providing students with such wonderful opportunities. From its classes, developing my technical skills and preparing me for software engineering positions, to its events like the Virtual Career Fairs, where I was able to directly meet and interact with recruiters and managers from various top tech companies, as well as progressing deep into the interview process with several of them. I would eventually end up receiving an offer from MathWorks to be a part of their EDG program as a software engineer. Without CodePath and its Virtual Career Fair, I would not have known about these positions or had the opportunity to establish relationships with these companies. I owe CodePath a tremendous amount of gratitude for the position I am in today!"
