Apprenti, Snohomish County Tech Training Academy Partnership Creates Opportunities for Displaced Workers
In 2020, workers across Washington state have been heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, with…
This month we are presenting one of our first Amazon apprentices. Bevin moved all the way from Chicago to pursue his passion in the tech sector. Bevin is from a group of 8 veterans who are currently training as apprentices to be Cloud Support Associates at Amazon.
I was going to college in Chicago and looking for a part time tech job at the time, one night I was scrolling through Facebook and I saw an ad for Apprenti, so I figured I would give the test a shot and see where things went.
I was working on my Bachelor’s degree at DeVry and working part time jobs.
Currently, I am training for my AWS Solutions Architect certificate and Linux + certification as a part of my apprenticeship as a Cloud Operations Specialist at Amazon. It is going awesome! I love how much I get to learn every day.
Apprenti has made my career, I never thought I would be working at AWS, especially without a college degree! I definitely plan on staying with Amazon, it is an awesome company to work for.
I would absolutely recommend Apprenti to anyone who is passionate about technology, wants to make a major change in their life, and is willing to put in work for it.
