Why Choose BAVC Media Apprenticeships?

Diversify your talent pipeline with more women, people of color, veterans, disabled and LGBTQ candidates. Reap the benefits of home-growing your talent through apprenticeships — you’ll get higher productivity and nail retention. Hungry, talented apprentices are standing by! If you have someone in mind for a new hire, you don’t have to rely on our referrals–choose whom you’d like to apprentice. While you are expected to hire your apprentice on Day 1, you are under no obligation to keep the apprentice.

Leverage Your Existing Talent Programs

If your business already has an internship program or formal mentorship culture, aligning it with registered Apprenticeship will maximize your benefits. Apprenticeships allow forward-thinking businesses to leverage existing recruitment and professional development investments, and will augment your talent search and learning and development strategies in the following ways:

  • Receive new, non-traditional, pre-screened candidate referrals
  • Leverage alternative career pathways, professional growth and retention
  • Maximize your diversity and inclusion efforts

Looking to promote someone already on staff? Convert them to apprenticeship and receive national recognition. This is the way we raise the floor!

Promote Current Staff

Investing in the continuing growth of your staff is good for business. We can point you to training options that will make sense for your team and training is a leading indicator for higher retention rates, helping to reduce costly turnover.
