What We’re Looking for
Each year, we receive questions about the kind of person who makes a great apprentice. We want to be clear about what we are looking for, so please continue reading how we will make decisions for the 2019 apprenticeship.
The folks who make it to the final round of our apprenticeship application process all have a tremendous hunger to learn, and they back it up with their own experimentation. To be successful in a career on the web, you have to be continually learning—you have to be hungry for knowledge.
Having a strong desire for knowledge is one thing; being willing to hear authentic, constructive criticism—and do something about it—is another. This is a learning role. You have to be willing to check your ego at the door and do what it takes to improve. This is a characteristic we expect of all Sparkboxers, and if you make it into the apprenticeship, you’ll see that we learn as much from you as you do from us.
The past few years have taught us that we can always do more to create an inclusive environment—both in our industry and on our team. Sparkbox has been evolving our benefits, and we’ve been working to build a team where we acknowledge our own faults, make all feel welcome, and humbly help one another other grow.
One way we can grow is by including more teammates who challenge our worldviews and ways of thinking. To this end, on our apprenticeship application, we’ve given you the opportunity to share how you will bring a diverse perspective to the apprenticeship. This will be an important consideration in our review process.
Are You Ready?
We take this stuff seriously, and we ask that you do the same. Take a hard look at yourself to determine if you’re a good fit. There are many great apprenticeships out there, even if this one is not for you.
Grab all the details on the apprenticeship site, and get your 2019 application in before October 1st!
