COOP Careers Tabling
Meet a representative from COOP Careers learn about their programs and available opportunities.
COOP’s (“ko-op”) mission is to overcome underemployment for first-gen college graduates through digital skills and peer connections. We offer a fully funded apprenticeship with three flagship tracks: Digital Marketing, Data Analytics, and Financial Services. Across our sites in New York City, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami, we’ve launched 350+ cohorts since 2014, welcoming almost 4,000 alumni in our first eight years.
Eighty percent of alumni overcome underemployment within a year, earning an average of $50,000 per year and almost $75,000 after five years. COOP aims to reach 10,000 alumni in our first decade.
COOP is a unique digital training program that brings together peer cohorts of 16 motivated, underemployed grads who meet nightly for 16 weeks (200 hours) to learn technical skills, build community, and jumpstart careers in digital marketing, data analytics, business development, and financial services.
Each cohort is led by a team cohort captains—near-peer program alumni who serve as coaches, mentors, and guides on top of busy day jobs at local ad agencies and tech companies. In parallel, COOP helps these same employers meet, interview, and hire more and more diverse candidates.
