What is a Web Development Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are long term, usually full-time, paid training programs to learn software development skills while on the job.

These coding jobs for beginners are a fantastic way to gain real-world experience and build your resume and project portfolio.

Another bonus is that most apprenticeships lead to job placement.

There is often an expectation that the employer is training an apprentice to work for them.

Apprentices work alongside senior developers to experience the day-to-day responsibilities of the job.

By doing this, they learn the skills required to do the job themselves.

5 Steps to Land a Web Development Apprenticeship

1. Learn the coding skills required for the position.

Although apprenticeships are learn-on-the-job opportunities, the employers still expect the candidate to pass the interview process and qualify for the position.

Attending a coding bootcamp prepares you.

And it also shows employers that you’re willing to invest in personal growth and you’re not intimidated to learn new skills.

Practicing with side projects and updating your GitHub project portfolio is a great way to stand out and stay ahead.

And remember—you’ll never know everything about web development because technology is always changing.

So don’t be too hard on yourself.

But be a constant learner and stay on top of what’s trending in the industry.

2. Tailor your resume and update your GitHub profile.

Put your new skills and accomplishments on display.

This is important when starting to interview.

Customize your resume for each job application, so the information is relevant for that specific company and position.

Maintaining an active GitHub profile that shows commits is a significant factor considered by hiring managers.

Be prepared to explain the design of your projects.

Keep your project portfolio updated and continue to improve it as your skills progress.

3. Apply, Apply, Apply

Start applying to as many apprenticeship openings as you can find.

Reject any self-doubt you may have.

You’ve worked hard to get to this point.

Give yourself a chance.

It can be intimidating.

But fear it and do it anyway.

You got this.

4. Practice Interviewing… and then practice some more.

Being prepared is the best way to ease any nervousness that comes with speaking about yourself and your accomplishments.

Practice mock-interviews to prepare for commonly asked software engineer technical interview questions.

Practice running through coding challenges.

They are an important part of most developer interviews.

Have questions prepared to ask during your interview to learn more about the position and company.

5. Leverage your network.

Use social media sites like LinkedIn to let your network know you’re looking for opportunities.

Keep everyone up to date on your progress.

Build relationships with people who work for companies in your target industries, people with your dream job.

Nucamp students become members of our large and growing community of peers and instructors.

Our community is there for interview help, project advice, and even employment opportunities.
