Common questions

  • How do I know this is the right program for me?

    Acadium Plus was built for students looking for a hands-on, learning through doing program to gain skills that can accelerate your earning potential. Our career coaches, guest speakers, hiring partners, and instructors not only help with getting you the skills you need, but specifically help in landing paid opportunities as well.

  • How much work is involved?

    There's no such thing as a free ride. To enable great outcomes for our students, we offer a challenging program that tests students with real projects for active businesses. Before deciding to join, make sure you're ready to commit to 8 months of training — Acadium Plus offers world class resources and mentors but it's ultimately up to students to take advantage of them. You will get out what you put in!

  • Can anyone join Acadium Plus?

    Acadium Plus is open to anyone, anywhere in the world! Because the program is remote, we are able to work with students globally — all live sessions are recorded as well so that students can watch the sessions on their own time if needed.

  • Can I participate in Acadium Plus while working full time?

    Yes! Many of our students balance full-time work with the Acadium Plus. All of the live sessions are recorded so that they can be reviewed whenever is most convenient. Our coaches work to accommodate everyone’s schedule from day to night, PST to EST.

  • What is Acadium Talent Hub?

    We’ve connected with digital marketing agencies, eCommerce brands, and leading online businesses to ensure our students can get placed at leading workplaces. Talent Hub members have confidence in Acadium+ students, and allow you to skip the application process and go straight to interviews.

  • What should I expect?

    Expect to hustle, work hard, and learn a whole lot – all while taking comfort knowing you have a team supporting you towards your digital marketing career.

  • How can I make sure I succeed in the program?

    Approach the program with a growth mindset, and be mentally prepared to work hard. The program is challenging by nature, and often times will challenge the way you think by introducing you to new mental models, and best practices. After you’ve joined the program, stay tuned for a video from your head instructor, Erik Harbison, for more information!
