Starting a Career in a Flourishing Industry.

Relevant work experience is critical for starting a successful career. However, if you’re just starting out, finding jobs that will offer you the experience you need can be challenging.

An apprenticeship or internship program can provide you with opportunities to gain hands-on experience, build relationships with other industry professionals, and learn from a mentor who is currently succeeding in their career.

Assisting Your Job Search

Based on the availability of employers hiring at that time, we send your resume to our company partners. We will reach out if an interview is requested. Our employer partners decide who to select for an interview.

If an interview is requested from an employer partner, you will go through their interview process as you would in any other position. A job offer must be extended in order to begin the apprenticeship.

Frequently Asked Questions

Apprenticeship positions are available and start based on employer demand. For this reason, a schedule is not always available. However, apprenticeship applications are always accepted here.

Apply Now

No, but by applying with us, you give us permission to share your resume with our company partners. Think of us as matchmakers based on criteria you share (position of interest, pay, location, etc.) and what an employer is looking for. Keep in mind that the company chooses which candidates to interview and hire.

Apprenticeships and internships are not the same. These programs have differences that employers and candidates need to be aware of—from their purpose, length of time, pay structure, employee status, and other elements.

Internships offer initial work experience, last for a few months to a year, may be paid or unpaid, and hold a temporary status.

In contrast, apprenticeships offer career advancement, last for a year or more, are always paid, and hold the status of a full-time, permanent employee.

The length of training (not to be confused with the length of employment) can vary depending on the employer, the complexity of the occupation, the industry, and the type of program. The employer is required to provide a minimum of 144 hours of training and a designated mentor during your first year.

Our company partners & employer partners range from start-ups to large corporations across all industries.

Once an application is received, it can take 3-4 weeks for an Apprenticely Recruiter to review the application and set up the initial phone interview. Timing varies due to the availability of employers hiring at that time.

It could take anywhere from 1 to 6 months, depending on the company’s demand. We work hard to pair you with the right company fit and will contact you once a potential match is available.
