What if I don’t have any experience coding? Can I still get into the program? Obviously, some experience with the technical skills will help, but even if you’re new to web development, you can be part of our program. The application process requires pre-work, which will help us determine the applicants we want – hard work, critical thinking and problem solving will get you far.
I filled out the application. Am I accepted? We get a lot of applicants for a limited number of spots so applying is just the first step. We’ll contact you with the next steps, but there’s a decent amount of pre-work and interviews with our team if you want to continue through the application process.
Will I be compensated during this apprenticeship? Fair is fair, right? We pay our apprentices above minimum wage while they’re learning and working on our clients’ projects. There are opportunities for raises according to the wage progression schedule listed above and how dedicated you are too. It’s a full-time job requiring your full-time attention.
What percentage of students qualify for financial aid and scholarships? Unlike most web development boot camps, we pay you to be part of our apprenticeship program so we don’t offer financial aid. We’re looking for people with dedication and passion – not the biggest check. You may want to connect with your local Career OneStop to assist in funding the Apprenticeship Training Class IF you lack the skills to provide pre-work experience.
How long is the selection process? The selection process can take two to four weeks so if you are interested in pursuing a career as a web developer and want to apprentice with Interns4Hire.com, you should apply as soon as possible. We’ll review every application so apply early to make sure you’re on the list.
What happens to people when they finish the apprenticeship? That depends on the person, their commitment, and the employer partner. After completion of an apprenticeship program, the apprentice earns a nationally-recognized credential from the State of Maryland Office of Apprenticeship and Training Office of Workforce Development Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation that is portable and stackable. This means that other employers in that industry will recognize its value and that the apprentice can build on its foundation to further his or her knowledge and education. Interns4Hire.com is a Non-Joint Committee Apprenticeship program–meaning, some apprentices get hired directly by our partnering employers and work for them, and some apprentices become part of the Interns4Hire.com team. Interns4Hire.com is working on expanding their apprenticeship program to the District of Columbia, Michigan, and Florida.
