There are three things that will get your account removed from our marketplace.
Acadium apprenticeships are unpaid. Candidates enter apprenticeships to gain work experience, build a portfolio, get referrals, and attain our hands-on certification.
We strictly prohibit the solicitation of paid work. Our goal is to help candidates gain meaningful experiences from mentors they otherwise wouldn't have access to. You cannot ask for paid work or offer your services for a fee, as this violates our terms. Asking for money for any rendered work or tasks will result in immediate removal of your profile from the marketplace and a ban from the platform.
In some cases, businesses will offer candidates compensation to work additional hours during the apprenticeship. While this is not a violation of our terms, candidates should never initiate talks of compensation during the apprenticeship. Talks of receiving compensation for overtime while the apprenticeship is ongoing should only be initiated by the business.
Additionally, while it is not allowed to ask for compensation, many apprenticeships lead to a direct-hire or referral. We are super excited when this happens since this is why we created Acadium in the first place. It’s also fine to ask the business if the apprenticeship can lead to a job upon completion.
If you wish to learn more about any relevant labor laws concerning our business practices and apprenticeship program, you can talk to us through our chat support system, and we will gladly walk you through our model and the regulations we follow. We're an education company, so our ultimate goal is to help candidates land successful careers through hands-on experience.
