Cohort 1 kicked off on January 4 with 6 apprentices and 6 digital marketing jobs at companies in San Antonio. DCI identified these candidates as high-potential future marketing leaders and then matched them up with growth-oriented companies in San Antonio looking for new talent. After completing a week-long bootcamp to learn the basics of digital marketing, our apprentices launched into their jobs to put their knowledge into practice. They are now immersed in the regular rhythm of full-time work combined with coaching and intensive study during evenings and weekends.
Here’s a little info about Cohort 1: the apprentices and their digital marketing jobs with our client companies.
