The Apprenticeship I Would Want

I received an email from an industry friend and fellow Silicon Alley Golf Invitational player who alerted me of the TubeMogul/IPG Apprenticeship program.  I’ve been living under a rock lately so I totally missed this when it first came out in early March but here is one of the pieces written up about the program.

I don’t have any more information than anyone else reading the websites but looks like you spend 6 months learning the ins/outs of TubeMogul and then the next 6 months learning the ins/outs of IPG, a very large and respected agency holding company with a nod towards advertising and media technologies.  I wonder if it’s paid?

This apprenticeship is fantastic.  Forget TubeMogul or IPG for a second.  Just think of spending 6 months at a leading video publisher and then 6 months on the agency side.  You will learn a lot.  This is the opportunity to get your footing in the right place, learn what you like/don’t like, and start to form an opinion in the ad tech industry.

So, if you’re not gainfully employed, graduating University or are looking to jump ship, you should check out this apprenticeship.  More here.

… and absolutely love the initial question re: LumaScape – place TubeMogul + IPG on the landscape.
