    What is the Hubpages Apprenticeship scheme like?

    What kind of person qualifies?
    What should I expect?
    Anyone out there that has completed it yet?

    Well, let's just say this.  I was turned down because I "didn't write well enough" for the tastes of the apprenticeship program.  So, apparently if you are not a journalist you can't get in. Not to mention the fact that you have to be an expert in computers in order to make your hub look pretty with all the little extra boxes and quotes, etc.  No I'm not bitter really I'm not, I'm appauled and HP should be ashamed of themselves.  If I am allowed to write articles on here then I should be allowed to be in a writing program to improve my writing skills.  Apparently, they don't want to take the time in teaching non journalists.  (I'll probably be banned for this now)  But they sure enjoy raking in the extra dough that I'm making them.

    I'm not a journalist, I barely graduated high school, I did learn how to make web pages about fourteen years ago and the only thing I am really an expert in is slacking. I also wouldn't call the Apprenticeship Program a scheme. They take people who already have a grasp on the basics of writing for the internet and teach them skills to maximize their potential and profits. It makes sense for HubPages to teach people to write so that HP can earn money, too. Some people make the cut, some people don't. Some who have been turned down have reapplied and been accepted. I don't know what the criteria are, but I had been here for about four months when I started the program and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. I'm in month five and I have six weeks to go before my little grey A turns green.

      Great for you.  I didn't say it was a scheme and HP is worth over $10 million thanks to their writers.

      Sarra, I never implied that you said it was a scheme. Re-read the original question.
