Digital Strategy 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 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 Digital Strategy Apprenticeship is offered in-person at four of our office locations (Falls Church, VA; Durham, NC; Chattanooga, TN; and Boulder, CO) or remotely for US-based candidates.
The apprenticeship lasts 10 weeks, from September 13 to November 19.
Apprentices are expected to work 40 hours/week (9-5, M-F, but we can be flexible).
Total compensation of $6,000.
You must have the permanent, legal right to work in the US. We are unable to offer work visa sponsorship at this time.
About You (You may not be all of these things yet, and that's okay!):
You are entrepreneurial and business savvy. Your lemonade stand turned a profit. You’re known for sensing a business opportunity miles away.
You love the Internet and are excited about the tech industry.
You're the first among your friends not just to know about the latest trends in the web and tech industries, but to tinker and experiment with the tools themselves.
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 are a self-starter and aren't afraid to develop your own projects and attack them. Sitting around idly isn't your cup of tea.
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.
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.
You’ll brainstorm ideas and develop creative responses to engagement opportunities, working alongside designers, copywriters, and technologists to develop a practical, yet ambitious, vision for an engagement.
We’re committed to creating an inclusive workplace. We value the new perspectives and contributions of each person who joins Viget. In order to meet the diverse needs of our clients and make the digital world better for everyone, we seek to expand the diversity of our team. We designed the Viget Apprenticeship for career-changers and those early in their careers to accelerate their paths in their chosen field, and we encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply.
