CollegeVine Announces Partnership with General Assembly to Expand Career Opportunities for Students

The new collaboration offers high school students on CollegeVine accessible pathways into tech careers through General Assembly’s career-centric programs


BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CollegeVine, the AI-powered professional network for high school students today announced a partnership with General Assembly (GA) designed to broaden educational and career opportunities for its 2.3 million students. This collaboration marks the first of its kind between CollegeVine and an alternative credentialing program like General Assembly.

Zack Perkins, CEO of CollegeVine, said, “This first-of-its-kind partnership will open additional doors for thousands of high school students looking to launch their careers in tech. I’m thrilled to partner with General Assembly as we continue to expand access to post-secondary opportunities for our students.”

General Assembly’s CMO Jourdan Hathaway added, “A growing number of organizations and state governments are adopting a skills-first approach to hiring. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all education model. For those who choose not to go the route of traditional higher ed, GA paves an accelerated pathway into high-demand roles.”

General Assembly will leverage CollegeVine’s AI recruiting capabilities to help explain their offerings on-demand and in over 20 languages to students seeking alternative paths or guidance on more affordable entry points into tech careers such as software engineering, data analysis, data science, UX design and AI.

This partnership also comes at a critical time for high school students that have been disproportionately affected by the ongoing changes and delays affecting FAFSA and the college financial aid process.
