This project and community, apprenticeship.io, was inspired and created by a group of talented, caring Dev Bootcamp and Learner's Guild students and alumni. Navigating the job hunt as a non-traditional engineer has never been a clear or easy path. When we realized how little information and knowledge existed about these career paths (even amongst employers, educators and career coaches!), and we realized that our legacy, wins, and stories would be, in many ways, lost with the closure of our programs. We decided to start an independent open source project to help non-traditional engineers make it into apprenticeships, regardless of their ability to afford expensive career coaching and immersive full time training. Sick of years of excuses from employers, we also wanted to show companies that hiring non-traditional engineers through apprenticeship is valuable, affordable, and simple. We want to provide resources and inspiration to ignite changes in engineering hiring and career development practices.
