In case you had any questions
What is Acadium?
Acadium is a digital platform that connects you, an aspiring digital marketer, with a vetted business owner that will teach you digital marketing through one-on-one mentorship, hands-on experience, and real-world projects for their business. Apprenticeships are 3-months long, completely remote, and always free for apprentices.
How do apprenticeships work?
During your first week as a new apprentice, you will be onboarded to your mentor's business. You will discuss how you can help the business reach it's goals and how the business can help you reach your goals. You will then spend the rest of your apprenticeship achieving these specific goals. At the end of the apprenticeship, you get a certificate that you can add to your LinkedIn account, experience to add to your resumé and portfolio, freelancing experience, and a reference. We also suggest building a portfolio of your work because marketing is a very visual field.
How will I be prepared for the job market?
Completing an apprenticeship on Acadium will equip you with real-world work experience that you can add to your resume and LinkedIn profile, give you the confidence that you need to stand out in job interviews, and allow you to build connections with industry professionals that can support you in your job search with reference letters, referrals, or even a job offer.
What is the time commitment?
As an apprentice, you will need to commit 10 hours a week for 3 months. This time will be spent being onboarded to your mentor's business, having one-on-one calls with your mentor, and working on apprenticeship projects and tasks.
Is Acadium free?
Yes. The standard Acadium experience is always 100% free for apprentices—this includes access to lessons, connecting with mentors, starting apprenticeships, and getting certified. While the standard Acadium experience is designed to get you job-ready for free, Acadium also offers a paid program, Acadium Plus, that's specifically designed to get you hired.
Do I need work experience?
No. You can find and start an apprenticeship with little to no work experience. What matters most is your ambition, eagerness to learn, work ethic, commitment, and communication skills. If you lack digital marketing experience, you can learn foundation knowledge with Acadium's free courses.
How can I start an apprenticeship?
To start, you can explore available apprenticeships to find exactly what you want. Next, you'll create an Acadium profile and submit it to the Admissions Team for approval. Once your profile has been approved, you'll be able to chat with mentors and apply to their open apprenticeship. After you find a mentor that's a good fit, you can sign the labour contract and start your apprenticeship.
