Welcome to the latest issue of The Remote JobHunters!
We’re thrilled to share that Google’s U.S. apprenticeship program applications are now open! Even better many of these roles can be performed remotely and do not require a college degree!
The deadline to apply to Google’s apprenticeship program is right around the corner on May 16th!
About the program
This is an official Registered Apprenticeship Program. Upon completion, apprentices receive a nationally-recognized credential, certified by the U.S. Department of Labor. Google’s Apprenticeship program is approved for VA education benefits. If you’re a Veteran and have been accepted into this apprenticeship, you may be able to use your GI Bill benefit and get tax-free money for books and supplies, as well as a monthly housing allowance (MHA) from the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
This program is a structured learning and development opportunity. Apprentices participate in on-the-job training and related technical instruction, as well as career readiness workshops and opportunities to develop professional skills. Apprentices are paid hourly for their time studying and learning on the job and are required to dedicate 40 hours each week to the program.
Apprenticeships begin with a three-week virtual onboarding experience, followed by an immersive 6-week Bootcamp with Google's apprenticeship partner, Multiverse, to build a foundational understanding of the profession. Apprentices will then join a Google team to train on the job while continuing to engage in track-specific learnings and career workshops throughout the program. Towards the end of the program, apprentices receive holistic career readiness support and will have the time and space to prepare for their next endeavor.
A typical week as an apprentice follows a hybrid structure, as they work towards completing all of the required competencies. Apprentices may dedicate 1–2 days to virtual lessons with Multiverse, such as spotlighting a particular concept or participating in a professional development workshop. They spend their remaining days gaining practical experience through different projects on their Google team. This ensures apprentices learn critical industry principles while also applying them to real-world projects. Apprentices are immersed into the culture at Google in various ways. They can attend local site and team-wide meetings and events, network with Googlers from all over the company, and build community through day-to-day interactions with their apprentice cohort.
The application window will be open from May 2–16, 2022.
The 2022 program commences on September 12, 2022. Apprenticeship tracks are either 12 or 20 months in duration, depending on the track.
We offer apprenticeships in several of our Google offices: Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, and New York. Most tracks will follow a hybrid workweek schedule, where most Googlers spend approximately three days in the office and two days wherever they work best. Some tracks will have a select number of remote offerings available.
✨ Data Analytics: Data analysts collect, transform, and organize data in order to help make informed business decisions. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google Data Analytics Certificate during the 20- month program.
✨ Digital Marketing: Digital marketers drive brand awareness and lead generation through digital channels. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google Digital Marketing & E-commerce Certificate during the 20- month program.
✨ Information Technology: IT specialists troubleshoot problems so computers and networks run correctly. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google IT Support Certificate during the 12-month program.
✨ Project Management: Project managers ensure projects within an organization are managed and completed with maximum value. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google Project Management Certificate during the 20-month 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. Apprentices on this track will complete SWE fundamentals training, as well as a specific Google technical onboarding, during the 20-month program.
✨ UX Design: UX designers make digital and physical products easy to use, accessible, and enjoyable. Apprentices on this track will complete the Google UX Design Certificate during the 20-month program.
Tip for College Students:
Although you cannot apply to a role that directly correlates to your major (i.e. a computer science major cannot apply for the software engineer apprenticeship), you can apply to roles in other fields.
For example, if you are a computer science major, you can apply for the Product Management Apprenticeship.

After applying to Google a multitude of times, I thought about throwing in the towel. Nevertheless, I took one more leap of faith and applied to Google’s internship program. This month, I’ll be starting my Noogler (new Googler) journey :-).
