Terakeet Launches Second 12-Month Apprenticeship Program for Syracuse Locals


SYRACUSE, N.Y. (March 7, 2022) — Terakeet is pleased to announce the launch of its second 12-month Apprenticeship Program designed to remove a number of the barriers to entry that keep many recent high school graduates and other members of the Syracuse community out of traditional marketing and technical spaces.

The program will provide participants from the local Syracuse area with in-depth training and knowledge on the fundamentals of marketing and search engine optimization (SEO). Terakeet plans to hire 4–6 digital marketing and SEO apprentices for its second program, which is a full-time paid role with benefits. Applications for the program are being accepted today until May 13, 2022. The program will begin on July 11, 2022.

Chief People Officer Lynn Fraas explained, “We know different experiences and backgrounds make us a stronger organization. Whether you’ve just graduated from high school, or you’re changing your profession, we offer the training and experience that will allow you to build a long-term career.”

She continued, “We’re honored to help individuals launch their careers, no matter what their calling ends up being.”

The culmination of Terakeet’s 2021 pilot Apprenticeship Program led to the long-term hiring of three apprentices, who are now digital outreach specialists at the company. 

“Terakeet’s culture is one of inclusivity and integrity, this is one of the warmest, most welcoming jobs I’ve ever worked for,” said Digital Outreach Specialist (and former Apprentice) Joey Diaz. “The staff is amazing, and it feels like one big family.”

Throughout the program, apprentices will have the opportunity to collaborate closely with a team of SEO experts, content strategists, writers, and other members of Terakeet’s strategic outreach team. The program will be part hands-on and part classroom-style learning. Participants will be guided the entire way by a manager and a strong team of smart, supportive peers. 

At the completion of successful certification in year one, each member of the Apprenticeship Program will be eligible for a digital marketing specialist role. At that point, Terakeet will either commit to offering them a position or help guide them into the next phase of their career or education.
