Apprenticeship.gov is a new one-stop source for “all things apprenticeship.” Launched in August by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), the site features an Apprenticeship Finder that makes it easier for job seekers to find apprenticeship opportunities, often in high-skilled, high-paying careers.
The new Apprenticeship Finder tool allows you to search for apprenticeships by city, state, and occupation. Results include apprenticeship sponsor name and location, description of responsibilities, applicant requirements, and contact information.
You can apply for apprenticeships directly by following links from the postings in your results. The Apprenticeship Finder displays thousands of apprenticeship opportunities that are updated daily.
Apprenticeship.gov also helps employers promote apprenticeships across new or nontraditional industries where apprenticeships may be less common, such as healthcare or IT. Employers will find information and steps to start an apprenticeship program in their own organization. Additional resources are planned for coming months.
DOL collaborated with the National Association of State Workforce Agencies and DirectEmployers to create the Apprenticeship Finder using the National Labor Exchange (NLx), a jointly-sponsored resource that collects and distributes national job content.
Career seekers can access the no-cost website at https://www.apprenticeship.gov, and apprenticeship sponsors are encouraged to add their job listings to the NLx at no cost so they can be included in the Apprenticeship Finder tool. Employers can get started at https://www.apprenticeship.gov/why-apprenticeship#step1.
