ENTRY LEVEL OPPORTUNITY ISN'T JUST FOR UNIVERSITY GRADUATES 🎓
apprenticeship.io is the largest community of U.S. based software engineering apprenticeships.
We believe education level is the least acknowledged or discussed identity marker in tech, despite being deeply, historically linked to gender, race, and socioeconomic status in the U.S.
Today, an average Computer Science degree costs over $160,000, and nearly all jobs in software engineering require a degree.
It's time we forget about free food. At apprenticeship.io, we know that a company's investment in your learning, development, and growth are the ultimate job perks. We're here to reveal and celebrate the companies who get it.
We are building sustainable, scaled, entry level technical hiring programs for adults from non-traditional education pathways like bootcamps, community colleges, online programs, and self-directed study.
We gather past and present apprentices, and the employers who love them, to share our stories, advocate for better hiring practices, and expand access to exciting, high paid entry level technical training.
As a community, we are intersectional, we care about identity, and we understand structural inequality. We believe apprenticeships are a tool to unlock human potential and to dismantle archaic, harmful beliefs and culture in engineering.
We want to make apprenticeships industry standard. 🎉 🔧 💡
COMPANIES WITH APPRENTICESHIPS
in Software Engineering in the U.S.
WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP?
An apprenticeship is a 6 to 12 month (or longer!) paid training program aimed at developing mastery in specialized, high demand skills. Whether companies today utilize this age old concept to address learning and development in onboarding new employees, internal career progression by establishing clear paths for lateral and vertical promotions, critical hiring gaps for people from non-traditional education backgrounds, or expanding their commitment to inclusive company values: it all comes back to apprenticeship. You remember the Medieval blacksmiths? That's right, this path has been proven for over 500 years.
