And how did you like the program? Was it useful, did you learn a lot? Or was it a waste of time? I ask because I am a new hubber and at this point, I've published 4 hubs and I am hoping to become a rather prolific hubber . I'm also looking to strengthen my writing and the apprenticeship program seems like a good way to do that.
So, thoughts, anyone?
Er...I don't think they are supposed to identify themselves anymore for some reason. Probably because they are choosing a lot of new members over the veterans. Say no more!
Oops, I did not know this haha. I was just thinking of people that have completed the program a LONG time ago. Or you know, long-ish. Long enough to where it doesn't matter if they identify themselves.
I don't think anyone has completed it yet as it is a very new concept.
Oh wow, I didn't realize it was that new. I have only been on HubPages for two weeks but hopefully by the time they complete it, I will be ready for the program!
I don't think you need to wait for a group to finish the program before you have an opportunity to be accepted. The waiting list is allegedly only a month or two, yet the program is 6 months long, so there must be various groups running simultaneously.
Their first month is at Parris Island, SC. So they wont be able to get back to you just yet.
Well I haven't actually applied yet nor do I plan to for a little while. My life is a little hectic at the moment so I don't feel like I have the time to commit to a six month apprenticeship. However, I'm hoping that sometime next month I can apply for the program. I just posted this question simply to get everyone's opinions.
They don't really go to Parris Island. I was just poking this thread with a stick to get it started.
Yep, as others said, it's a new program.
I, myself, didn't know that those in the program weren't allowed to say anything yet.
Lol! Yes, I figured that they didn't actually go anywhere, my tired brain simply didn't figure that out until AFTER I posted my reply to your post.
If you're really interested, this will show you what others have said.

This one cracked me up, "... received my Apprenticeship blow-off today, and I doubt ..."
Looks like there is a waiting list and there is a lot of competition. Good luck!
I don't think it is an condition of 'membership' to keep it a secret either as I am sure I have seen threads where hubbers have said they are in the program.
Not lately, Misty. Let's just say it is suggested.
Ahhhhh, quite possibly. I can soon find out as I know at least one person in the program
But if they've been told not to tell......!
Don't bother. I have not been asked to keep it secret at all. Not even a suggestion that I might consider it.

The Apprenticeship Program - What am I in for?I'm actually really excited that I'm starting the Apprenticeship program in June. But I'm a bit apprehensive, too. Any folks out there already in it want to give a glimpse of what's in store? Particularly, how many hours a month are good to devote to...

Are your writing as many hubs as you used to? Why or Why not?What are the factors that you have decided to write more or fewer hubs than before?

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...

What is up with the apprenticeship program. Can anyone who has done it express their views on it, please?
