Digital Creative is placing talent with companies on an ongoing basis. Some apprentices are placed in their job several weeks or months before the cohort launches while others begin their new job as the cohort launches.
We will begin reviewing applications for cohorts 7 and 8 in October – applications close December 15.
The kickoff bootcamp is a one-week intensive program designed to provide you the foundation you will need to succeed as an apprentice and hit the ground running on day one. During this time, you will learn about:
All taught within the context of our partner companies’ real-world challenges. Read the recap of bootcamp from cohort 1 – here.
Let’s walk through how you will be compensated as a DCI apprentice working full-time for a local business (one of our partners) in San Antonio or Austin. You’ll apply to DCI and if apprenticeship is the right fit, we’ll get you ready to apply for marketing jobs. We’ll then help you set up interviews and coach you through the job hunt process.
If you are offered a marketing job from one of our partner companies, then we will talk to your employer and outline what your apprenticeship journey and learning goals will look like.
For 12 months you’ll receive coaching, training and mentoring from DCI and after the year you’ll be a graduate and DCI fellow equipped with all the marketing skills you’ll need.
As a result of your rapid skill development, you can move into a new job or stay at the same company and use all the new skills you’ve been building up! (More than likely at a higher compensation level)
Here’s a chart with some estimations. DCI does not directly determine your compensation – that is between you and your employer. However, you will likely earn an average entry level salary for a recent grad just entering the job market.
The total cost of the apprenticeship is $12K – with your employer paying $2K and you paying $10K for a monthly cost of $833. Investing your time and resources now will result in long-term career and skill development.
