In response to the coronavirus layoffs, we’re offering a training and mentorship initiative (for free!) led by experienced digital media strategists to help people new to digital media build essential skills to become successful candidates for copywriting and digital content-related roles.

If you’re …

  1. new to digital media
  2. unemployed due to COVID-19 measures
  3. interested in starting to work in digital media

…welcome!

Learn how to apply to the Digital Media Bootcamp below.


Dates

Monday, April 13th – Friday, April 24th

Sessions

Mon/Wed/Fri for two weeks. Total of 6 live, hands-on, 1-hour training sessions via video conferencing.

You’ll learn about content types, the content lifecycle, roles, tools, setting content goals, and creating content plans.

You’ll be guided through the process to research, write, optimize, publish, and promote their own article to begin building a portfolio of work.

Time commitment

6 hours of live training **plus homework**

Mentorship

After the Bootcamp ends on April 24th, participants are eligible for 1 month of ongoing, ad hoc mentorship from experienced digital professionals. Participants are encouraged to inform potential employers about the mentorship arrangement, which lessens the risk for employers and allows less experienced candidates to move into new roles with the confidence of having a mentor behind them.

Cost

Free for candidates accepted to the program.

Note: The Bootcamp doesn’t help directly with job placement. The training content and schedule may change according to the needs of participants as global health and economic circumstances evolve. 

The cohort will be limited in size depending on volunteer availability.
