5. I want to apply! What is required to create a Vendition Candidate Profile?
That’s great! To kick off your application to our Apprenticeship, you’ll be asked to create a new Vendition Candidate Profile. This will require you to provide your first and last name, email address, and create a password to access our career hub.
To become an official candidate, you must log in and complete your profile.
For us to consider your profile “complete,” fill us in about your education/work history, where you want to work, and traits you identify with. You’ll also create 2 casual introduction videos using the tools in the Profile.
Pro Tip: Be yourself in the videos! Submitting them will get your application on the fast track. For the first video, we’ll simply ask you to tell us more about yourself so we can get to know you. For the second, you’ll have 5 prompts you can choose from, such as “What motivates you?”
Believe in yourself, you’ve got this! Start your application here.
6. I created a Vendition Candidate Profile – what happens next?
We’re here to help you land your dream job. First, our dedicated team of Career Advisors will review your profile to determine if you’re a fit for a Sales Apprenticeship. Candidates who are selected to move forward will be contacted to meet with a Career Advisor for an introductory interview. Bring your best communication skills to this interview!
Alternatively, if we do not have an opportunity we will reach out with additional resources to help you with your career journey.
After the introductory interview, we can start the process of matching you with potential employers based on your interests. You can choose who you want to interview with, plus we’ll help you with expert mock interview training from coaches ready to help you succeed.
Lastly, once hired/placed at a partner company, you’ll start your Apprenticeship with additional coaching and resources from Vendition! Your Apprenticeship begins on Day 1 at your new job.

7. Where can I find more reviews of Vendition’s program?

8. I created a Vendition account before April 10, 2022, but I can’t seem to login in now. Why?
And now, for a bit of housekeeping! We launched an exciting new platform and we moved your account over, but you’ll need to reset your password the first time you login into the new platform. To access your account from our previous system:
- Reset your password at: https://candidate.vendition.com/forgot
- Login using that password at: https://candidate.vendition.com/login
- Select “Option” in Dashboard to Explore Bootcamp
9. I already told you where I want to work and sent my resume in my old account, do I have to do that again?
It’s possible. We apologize for the inconvenience! When we launched our new career matching platform, we weren’t able to transfer some of the information we had prior to April 10, 2022, so we may need you to re-provide some of that information if you created your account prior.
We encourage you to revisit your candidate profile and update any existing information.
10. I’m having trouble accessing my Vendition Learning Environment.
We’re sorry to hear that. If you had a Vendition Candidate account with us before April 10, you’ll need to reset your password. Once you reset your password and login, click the option to Explore Bootcamp and you’ll be sent to the Vendition Learning Environment (Canvas, LMS).
If issues persist, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
11. I reset my password but I still can’t login…
Shucks. Please contact email@example.com so we can get you back on track!
