The Terakeet Apprenticeship Program

Terakeet is for every future.

Our apprenticeship program is designed to help build technical and professional skills needed to jumpstart your career.

A Strong City

Syracuse is known as “The Salt City” because when times are tough, we get tougher. We pride ourselves on our grit and determination to be a better community for every citizen. At Terakeet, we know the work to be an equitable, socially responsible company is never finished. We believe in Syracuse and its ability to produce the most talented and motivated people. This is why we are excited to announce the launch of our Terakeet Apprenticeship Program for Central New York locals.

All the Benefits

This 12-month Digital Marketing Apprenticeship is a paid program with full benefits designed to offer you in-depth training and knowledge on the fundamentals of search engine optimization (SEO). But, this isn’t just about learning the basics of SEO. This apprenticeship program will also help you grow your communication skills, your writing abilities, and it will allow you to gain valuable business experience. Terakeet apprentices will be focused on identifying online publishers (such as bloggers and journalists) who can help our clients amplify their content across the web, while also learning from all of the other Terakeet departments that make our SEO strategies such a success.

The Full Experience

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

Build Your Career Toolkit

Whether you’ve just graduated from high school, or you’re deciding to change your profession, we offer the training and experience that will allow you to craft the career that you want. As we strive to be a more equitable and socially active organization, we want to remove some of the barriers that have kept local applicants from considering Terakeet. We are excited to welcome in new talent and help our apprentices reach their goals and hone their professional skillsets. No matter what your calling ends up being, Terakeet is honored to serve as the launchpad.

Lynn Fraas, Chief People Officer

Instagram post 17873947559067370 Earlier this week, we learned that we placed 44th in Great Places To Work’s “Best Work Places For Parents” category. This was an especially big honor, given all of the struggles parents across the world have had to face this year. Being a parent, a teacher, a coworker, and a person surviving a pandemic — all at once — is no easy feat.

We asked Digital Content Manager Melissa Stefanec to give us an honest appraisal of what juggling parenting and working remotely has been like this year. Her insights on being a parent at Terakeet this year are heartwarming, honest, and inspiring. We are grateful to every single ’Keeter for embodying the spirit of teamwork to support their coworkers during such a historic time.

Instagram post 18146647189099743 Remote work is now more important than ever before, but Terakeet has always included it as an added benefit to our employees. For Natalie Wallon (Digital Marketing Specialist), having the ability to work remotely has opened up an entirely new opportunity! 🐚🌋

“Moving to Hawaii over 4,000 miles from home was scary, but having a company support me through this adventure has made working from the island even better. As a remote employee, I found that even through time differences, Terakeet’s culture makes it easy to feel connected and part of a bigger team no matter where you are in the world!” #weareterakeet💚
