Presented by smartlogic

What to Expect:

Launched in 2018, the SmartLogic developer apprentice program offered three junior developers the opportunity to accelerate their careers through a paid apprenticeship. We were able to solve for an internal hiring need and provide an alternative pathway for community members into the development profession.

An apprenticeship program is a valuable tool for any team facing a talent gap or working to increase diversity and inclusion, both common scenarios in the tech industry. We’d like to share our success story along with some key factors and takeaways for any other tech teams out there who might be interested in implementing a similar program.
