Frequently Asked Questions
Besomebody Paths give you hands-on skills training for great jobs, with great employers. They’re 100% in-person, the curriculum is created with the hiring companies, and when you graduate, you’re guaranteed a job. All Paths are managed through our online Path Manager.™
Our mission is to make education and employment more accessible, practical and passion-based. There are two crises colliding right now – the student debt crises and the skilled worker crises – that are hurting a lot of people and holding even more back. We believe our Paths can help, and we’re passionate about building that solution.
We realized that education and employment were too disjointed. And the current system isn’t working for a lot of people. It doesn’t make sense to spend so much money on education, and then still not be prepared when you start your job. Employers are really frustrated about that. And students aren’t setup for success. So we flipped the model. With our Paths, we start by partnering with amazing companies in high-growth industries to really understand the specific skills you need to succeed at specific jobs. Then we work with those companies to put together a hands-on, skills-based curriculum for each of their open jobs. Then, we bring on industry experts to teach them. And the last step, which is the most exciting, is inviting great candidates who are passionate about the industry and excited to work for that company, to take the Path. Each Path has different requirements based on the Employer and the field, but none of them require a college degree. Candidates that graduate the Paths on time and meet the performance requirements are guaranteed a job with the endorsing Employer.
Once you’re selected for a Besomebody Path, you get access to our Path Manager™ dashboard, skills builder and ratings panel. This is where you can view your upcoming experiences, rate your instructors and check on your own ratings and assessments to make sure you’re on track to graduate. We’ve built in a two-way rating system, just like all other great marketplaces, so that Candidates have a voice and an influence on their learning and instruction. All of our Instructors need to maintain a high rating in order to keep teaching on our Paths. And all candidates need to meet a performance threshold AND finish on time to be guaranteed a job. You have to put in the work, but when you perform, you’re rewarded for it.
Our Paths are generally about 4-8 weeks long, though it all depends on the job, the industry and the skill level that you’re looking to achieve.
Recruiting, hiring and training are all part of one of the biggest buckets of expenses for all companies. Finding the right talent, making sure they have the right skills, and then making sure they’re the right fit with the company’s culture are huge hurdles for all businesses. How people do on the job – AND why they do it – is so important. We believe passion, skills and experience are the recipe for success. And when you get all those ingredients right, it leads to happier employees, longer retention, a ton of cost savings, and better business results.
On average, Besomebody Paths are 10x less expensive, 20x faster, and much more practical than the other alternatives. Traditional colleges focus on grades and degrees while our Paths focus on skills and jobs. And of course, with Besomebody, graduation comes with a job guarantee. If you graduate and we’re unable to place you in a job, you get a full refund on your tuition. And if you qualify, you can even finance your tuition, so you don’t have to pay anything until after you get your first paycheck.
Our Paths begin with your passions. We’ve worked to identify exciting, high-growth industries that offer Candidates a first step into a career they are passionate about. We partner with great companies like Kroger, Hilton, MassMutual, Tire Discounters and University Dental. We are currently piloting Learning Paths in six passion areas: Wellness, Healthcare, Hospitality, Environment, Animals and Automotive.
We are opening up Paths in different passion areas along revolving enrollment periods, starting with Healthcare, Wellness and Entrepreneurship. Initial Path enrollment is currently open for Winter/Spring 2019. Candidates go through a short online application, phone interviews and a Conative Assessment before being granted Admission into a Besomebody Path.
For now, Path pilots are being conducted with leading Employers in various cities across the U.S. Once ready, we will open those Paths to specific cities, regions or the entire country, depending on demand for those jobs. The number of open Paths will always correspond to the number of open jobs, so that we can guarantee graduates a job. Our 2017 Paths are active in Texas, Kentucky and Ohio.
All Candidates who complete Paths on-time (completion periods are Path-specific, and are shared with all Candidates upon registration) and on-performance are guaranteed a job with the endorsing Employer, or they receive a full refund of their Path tuition. “On performance” means the Candidate met the requirements for the Employer’s predetermined skills ratings. Candidates are rated on a scale of 1-5 per skill, and most Employers require a 3.5 or higher for guaranteed employment. Candidates who meet those requirements will be placed in a job with the endorsing Employer within 60 days. Those who aren’t placed will receive a full refund of their tuition.
The costs of Paths vary depending on the job, the industry, the skills needed/taught and the duration. The current range for Besomebody Paths is between $2,000 – $5,000, with a 100% job guarantee. Payment financing and employer payback programs may be available to qualified Candidates. On average, Besomebody Paths are 10x less expensive than comparable programs at local community colleges, trade schools, vocational schools and online learning academies. None of those programs offer a job placement guarantee.
We are always looking for outstanding Employer partners. Our goal is to help build your business by creating a steady pipeline of skilled, trained and passionate talent that learns what they need to know to do well on the job, at your company. Everyone wins in this model: Employers win with reduced costs for hiring, recruitment and training. Candidates win with practical skills training that leads to a job (not just a degree). And Instructors win because they get paid to teach what they love. We would love to partner with you. If you would like to become a partner Employer, please click here for more information.
