FAQ

Since PathPeer doesn't charge students, how do you make money?

We're a startup - still trying to figure that out 😁. We never want to charge students to receive mentorship, so we're exploring providing paid services that are entirely optional.

Do I qualify for this?

If you've had any work experience, yes you do! Students are looking for various levels of advice, including simple questions like "how do I start building my resume?" You know more than you think.

Do I need to prepare?

Nope! Your current knowledge and experience is more than enough. You answer the student's questions as best as you can.

What if I can only do 1 coffee chat?

That's okay! Helping 1 student is better than helping 0.

Founder's note:

Hey, I’m Dragos!

I’m a recent Math/BBA grad from the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University.

I started PathPeer because I felt the costs and struggle of choosing the wrong career path. I spent 4 years learning Finance, which wasn’t right for me.

But I only found that out when I started chatting with professionals. I talked to 35+ people in various roles and finally found my passion for entrepreneurship.

I'm forever grateful to the people that helped me.

As a thank you, I've been paying it forward. I've helped over 20 students with their career and it's a fulfilling experience every time.

At PathPeer, I'm making it easy for any professional to help students.

I hope you'll join us on our journey.
