Digital Strategist Apprentice
We don’t have “sales people” at Viget. We all sell Viget all the time, mostly by doing great work and sharing what we know. Selling custom consulting services at an agency like Viget is different from selling traditional products or packaged services. It’s consultative. Each opportunity is a new problem to solve, a new strategy to develop—and requires a new, novel approach.
As our Digital Strategy Apprentice, you’ll learn as much about business strategy as you will about traditional selling. You’ll work closely with our Strategy team, gain an understanding of the digital industry, from products to digital marketing, from consumer apps to enterprise platforms. You’ll learn about the breadth of Viget services, the art of asking good questions, how to “sell” the Viget way, and, through it all, you’ll document and share what you’re learning.
- The program lasts 10 weeks, from September 11 to November 17. You must be available for the full 10 weeks.
- This is a hybrid position. The apprenticeship program is offered at all four of our office locations (Falls Church, VA; Durham, NC; Chattanooga, TN; and Boulder, CO) with flexibility to WFH (Work From Home) some of the time. Relocation is not provided.
- You are expected to work 40 hours/week (generally 9am-5pm your local time, M-F).
- Total compensation is $6,000. Apprentices do not receive health benefits.
- When working from home, you need a stable internet connection and a quiet workspace.
- Apprentices must have the permanent, legal right to work in the United States and must live in the United States.

You get things done. No matter what you're doing, you take pride in your work.
You enjoy responsibility and you know that real effort pays off daily.

You find your own ways to contribute and add value to teams.
You’re an exceptional communicator—a great writer, a confident speaker, and a keen listener—who can build trust and rapport in an authentic way.
You are extremely well-organized. You can handle several projects at once without anything slipping through the cracks.

You are a clear communicator verbally and in writing. You’re a good listener and enjoy collaborating.
What You’ll Learn
The basics of UX, design, front-end development, application development, and analytics. You should be able to speak the language and understand core concepts by the end of the apprenticeship.
You’ll review RFPs (Request for Proposals) and inbound leads, conducting initial research on prospective clients and their needs.
You’ll participate in the proposal and pitch process, writing compelling content and preparing presentations for digital products, ideas, campaigns, and websites.
