At Thrive Scholars, our goal is to see talented BIPOC students from economically disadvantaged communities develop economic mobility and financial security, and become the diverse corporate, civic, and academic leaders our country so desperately needs.
Our comprehensive, data-driven, high-touch program model focuses on the key inflection points that can be the difference between graduating from any college, and graduating from a top college with the grades, degree, career skills, and network needed to thrive in careers that equip Scholars for economic mobility.
The Career Development Program
Our career development program specifically includes two years of intensive, personalized career coaching, and access to our professional network and to corporate partnerships for internships and jobs. In recent years, Thrive Scholars has moved from a generalist career development program model to an industry pathway model to ensure that Scholars receive the tailored preparation, and gain the specialized skills, experiences and networks they need for the industries they are pursuing. Currently, Thrive Scholars has the following Career Pathways programs: Life Sciences, Engineering, Technology, Law, Finance, and Consulting. Scholars interested in other fields participate in our generalist Core pathway. Pathway Teams consist of a Pathway Director, and multiple staff focused on career coaching, stewarding partner relationships, and managing Scholar and partner events and programming. Each Pathway also collaborates with other program teams to support mentorship and Scholar internship and job placement.
Thrive Scholars is looking to recruit a strategic and effective Career Pathway Director, who will lead the Law Pathway, working to ensure that Scholars are exposed to career options in law, are admitted to top law schools, obtain excellent Summer Associateships and law jobs, and develop the knowledge, skills, and networks they need to thrive in the legal field, within Big Law and in other settings.
Within the Law Pathway, you will oversee a team that includes career coaches, an account stewardship manager, and a partner & events manager. In this leadership capacity, you will bring together your law industry expertise, and your knowledge in program, project design, and implementation to create and deliver a transformative career development experience for our Scholars, including industry exploration curriculum, LSAT preparation, and law school admissions support. Additionally, you will leverage external partnerships with top law schools and top law firms to help Scholars gain an understanding of, and a network in, the legal field and to prepare Scholars for successful careers across the industry.
In this role, you will have the opportunity to innovate, bring ambitious ideas to fruition, and build and lead a growing team.
The Career Pathway Director will report to the Managing Director of Career Pathways.
