Get Through College
“You taught me how to create an interesting resume and helped me feel confident in my job interviews. My job opportunities doubled, I became more successful in my interviews, and I even ended up declining job offers. Thank you very much! I would have never got them myself.”
“I came into Berkeley behind. SAT scores 250+ points lower than the average student accepted from the east coast. RizeU gave me the tips for the school and the job/professional opportunities that became my launching pad to success. 7 clubs, 4 internships, and 3 years later I have more experience than I can fit on my resume and am not only more prepared for graduation and life after, I'm ready and excited for it. Using what RizeU taught me before college I quickly became leaps ahead from being so far behind.”
Luke (UC Berkeley)
“Education only creates opportunity, knowing how to leverage that creates results. RizeU provided invaluable guidance during the entire college application process, helping me 1) avoid common application pitfalls and 2) optimize my portfolio to help me stand out. I learned the importance of maximizing real world experience and developed tools to secure internships and campus research opportunities. By graduation, I further stood out from my peers with 1.5 years equivalent of STEM experience. It didn’t end there, as I received guidance on customizing an eye-catching resume in this competitive job market. The focus is consistently to identify, leverage, and present what’s special about me.”
