Did anybody hate the apprenticeship program?


One third of the first class dropped out. I understand that it was mostly because of the rigors of the program and personal time constraints. However, I've seen nothing but praise so far. I'd like to hear from someone who didn't like the program. Maybe if we see why someone didn't like it applicants will be better able to self-screen, and thus avoid taking a spot in the program when they will be unable or unwilling to finish.

    Thanks, ithabise! I love writing, yet, in months 2 thru 4 of the Apprenticeship Program, the "chore" issue up for me, too. Your words give me some language around this & make it easier.

    Thanks for sharing the parts of the program that were less pleasant for you. I know what you mean about having your errors pointed out. Not always fun, but needed sometimes,

    I am an old, partnered, love to sleep gal, I managed to make it through! It has more to do with setting a goal and measuring up regardless of age and such.

    Cheers~

    Thanks for you answer, it's interesting that you mentioned not seeing a jump in earnings. I'd be curious to know how you're supposed to tell what's going to make money. For me it's always been a total surprise which hubs do well.

    Congratulations on reaching your goal and completing the program. I'm sorry to hear that you've lost the urge to write. The part of the AP that would be hard to replicate is the feedback. I guess I could submit every hub to extreme hub makeover.

    I hope all the people in the program take full advantage of it. They are the lucky ones who made the cut. It sounds like you are making the most of your opportunity.

    It sounds like a great program, it's just that there are not many things that are universally popular. It's good, if you don't think you can make the commitment, that you didn't apply.

    Good luck. One reason for my question is that I applied and was not chosen. With so many applying for the program now, some will be left out. I just think the more info people have going in, the better they can judge whether it's a good fit for them.

    Thanks for your answer. I'm not looking for a bunch, maybe one. One thing I've heard is that there are restrictions on what you can write about. Some people might chaff at that.

    Some people hate school. In some ways it sounds a lot like school. With so many people applying, I don't think we should assume we're no good if we don't get in. I was told I hadn't written enough hubs, though some who got in wrote less.
