We're looking for someone who is ambitious about their emerging career in the tech industry and passionate about producing great work.
You should be receptive to feedback, excited to learn new things, and interested in solving problems with clients. The strongest candidate is eager to collaborate on cross-functional teams and is ready to get outside their comfort zone.
Our two apprenticeship cohorts run from January to March and September to November each year. Applications open three months before the program starts. We’ll begin sharing info on our Fall 2021 program in the summer of 2021. In the meantime, if you’re interested in our program, feel free to send us an email to introduce yourself.
Get to know the program by learning the stories of our alumni. More than twenty people have completed an apprenticeship at Viget and are now flourishing in careers at agencies, start-ups, and product companies around the country. Meet a few of them below.
Following a degree in food science and a stint as a cooking show contestant, Diamond decided to trade chefware for CSS and complete her master’s in design. She joined Viget as a Front-End Developer Apprentice for our Fall 2019 cohort and is currently a Product Designer at AdvicePay. She says, “Being a part of the Viget Apprenticeship was the single best thing I could've done to bridge the gap between my design education and starting in a full-time role.” Check out her advice on finding your rhythm in a new job here.
After a decade working in life science research (and a PhD), curiosity drove Ginnie to explore web development. She enrolled in an immersive developer bootcamp and discovered the joy of experimenting with code before joining Viget as a Developer Apprentice in our Winter 2018 cohort. Ginnie is currently a Systems Analyst in Bioinformatics at RTI International. Read more about Ginnie’s experience as a Developer Apprentice here.
After studying literature and journalism, Becky worked in newsrooms in London, Paris, Beijing, and San Francisco. Becky was largely self-taught as she transitioned from journalism to UX. She was looking for more practical experience to go along with her theoretical knowledge, and she joined Viget as UX Designer Apprentice in the winter of 2019. She is currently a UX Designer at Viget. Read more about Becky’s apprenticeship and career transition here.
After exploring careers in film, photography, and audio production, Ben discovered his love for web design and development. Ben started as an intern at Viget soon after completing his undergraduate education and then continued as a Front-End Developer Apprentice in the Fall 2017 cohort. He is currently a Front-End Developer at Cadent.
We love welcoming Apprentices to Viget's four lovely offices. However, due to COVID-19, our offices are closed and everyone is working from home. Our Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 program were fully remote. We anticipate offering both in-office and remote roles for Fall 2021. As one factor of many in our evaluation process, we'll take into account geographic proximity to our offices and time zone compatibility with our Advisors.
