Google now offers apprenticeships at several of its U.S. Google offices: Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and Sunnyvale offices.
All apprentices will participate in on-the-job work experience and receive external skills training through a partner organization. Upon program completion, apprentices receive a nationally-recognized credential certified by the Department of Labor. Some tracks also include completing the corresponding Google Career Certificate.
The six work-and-study programs will range in duration from 12-20 months and comprise the following fields:
Data Analytics: Data analysts collect, transform, and organize data in order to help make informed business decisions. The data analyst track is a 20-month program starting in October 2021 in either New York, Atlanta or Chicago. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google Data Analytics Certificate during the program.
Digital Marketing: Digital Marketers drive brand awareness and lead generation through digital channels. The DM track is a 20-month program starting in October 2021 in New York.
Information Technology: IT Specialists troubleshoot problems so computers and networks run correctly. The IT track is a 12-month program starting in September 2021 in either New York, Austin or Sunnyvale. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google IT Support Certificate during the program. Applications will open on March 22, 2021.
Project Management: Project managers ensure projects within an organization are managed and completed with maximum value. The project management track is a 20-month program starting in October 2021 in New York, Atlanta or Chicago. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google Project Management Certificate during the program.
Software Engineering: Software Engineers work on complex computer science solutions, develop scalable, distributed software systems, and collaborate on smaller projects that have universal appeal. The SWE track is a 20-month program starting in October 2021 in either New York or Atlanta.
User Experience (UX) Design: UX designers make digital and physical products easy to use, accessible, and enjoyable. The UX design track is a 20-month program starting in October 2021 in either New York or San Francisco. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google UX Design Certificate during the program.
The IT apprenticeship is currently accepting applications now through late April, and the other five apprenticeships will also begin accepting applications throughout the spring season — stay tuned to g.co/apprenticeships to learn when those will go live.
In order to apply, candidates will simply need an updated resume and a cover letter explaining their interest in becoming an apprentice at Google. The Google team will review applications on a rolling basis and encourage interested candidates to apply early. Lastly: Google’s offices are currently closed due to COVID-19, so these apprenticeships will very likely be virtually hosted for their first few weeks/months. Google will keep applicants posted about return-to-office developments.
