These full-time opportunities provide valuable experience and can lead to meaningful careers. Where do you look? Who do you contact at companies to identify these opportunities? What companies want to bring you onto their team? Create a short profile to let employers know you are available to participate with specifics on dates, locations and desired jobs/fields.
Fastport funnels access to Employers who have registered Apprenticeship Programs. The Registered Apprenticeship is a unique, flexible training system that combines job related technical instruction with structured on-the-job learning experiences. Each Registered Apprenticeship is approved by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and is a paid job that focuses on training candidates to become experts in their field. On-the-job focused training allows the best candidates to become masters of their crafts in a wide variety of careers across the country. Employers and job seekers benefit from apprenticeship because it is considered the “gold standard” for talent development.
