Department of Labor Announces New Apprenticeship.gov

September 14, 2018

The U.S. Department of Labor announced a new digital platform, Apprenticeship.gov. This innovative web portal features an Apprenticeship Finder tool that offers career seekers a platform to search for apprenticeships by city, state, and occupation, as well as connects job seekers to high-skilled, high-paying careers.

The Apprenticeship Finder, a no-cost tool to employers or career seekers, was created to address a need shared by employers who are looking to promote their apprenticeship opportunities and career seekers searching to access them. The new Apprenticeship Finder tool is intended to make it easier for career seekers to find apprenticeship opportunities and help employers promote apprenticeships across new or non-traditional industries where apprenticeships may be less common.

The Apprenticeship.gov site delivers on the Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion's recommendations, which identified the need to "compile apprenticeship information in a single, online, centralized website." The website will connect career seekers, employers, and educators on a single, online platform.
