For students considering routes to a great career other than attending a four-year college, Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center’s advice and resources on apprenticeships have been completely revised and updated to provide the perfect starting point for anyone seeking to research, find, and apply for an apprenticeship.
This updated and expanded section features 12 advice articles discussing how apprenticeships work in the U.S. and Canada, how to apply, key skills for success as an apprentice, and how to prepare for an apprenticeship.
The articles include:
- Applying and Interviewing for an Apprenticeship
- Apprenticeships in the United States
- How Apprenticeships Work in Canada
- Green Pre-Apprenticeships and Apprenticeships
- Modern Apprenticeships
- Etiquette in an Apprenticeship Program
- Apprenticeship Programs for Transitioning Military and Veterans
- Women in Apprenticeships
- Key Skills for Successful Apprentices
- How to Learn More About Apprenticeships

- High School Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship Programs
Plus, researchers will find overview articles in more than 50 categories discussing how apprenticeships work in individual career fields such as carpentry, elevator construction, masonry, medical technology, railroads, theaters, trucking, and more. Each category features a Program Directory tab, a special section that lists specific apprenticeship opportunities and programs state by state for users to contact for more information or to apply—with more than 6,500 offerings in total across all categories.
Users can find this proprietary new content under “Apprenticeships” on the “Launch Your Career” drop-down menu or via the “More Apprenticeships” link in the “Launch Your Career” section of the home page.
