About the job
Every college grad deserves a fair shot at a meaningful, upwardly mobile career. That’s the promise of higher education in America, but the payoff depends on who you know, not just what you learned.
COOP Careers closes the social capital gap by recruiting and investing deeply in diverse, low-income, and first-generation grads from the City University of New York, San Francisco State, and other urban public colleges.
Our flagship program is The Digital Apprenticeship. Peer cohorts of 16 motivated, underemployed grads meet nightly for 16 weeks (200 hours) to learn technical skills, build community, and jumpstart careers in digital marketing and data analytics. Each cohort is led by a team of four captains, “near-peer” COOP 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.
Since 2014, COOP has run 76 cohorts with over 1,000 alumni, on our way to 10,000 by 2023. Four-in-five alumni work full-time, earning an average of $45,000 after 12 months (3x pre-program average) and almost $70,000 after three years (2x peer baseline).
Long-term, COOP aims to double the lifetime income of alumni—fueling upward mobility and fulfilling our collective promise of higher education. Learn more here .
COOP is an energetic, come-as-you-are, alumni-led organization. Over 70% of our staff members have been program participants. This translates to a workplace that is mission-driven through and through, where we collaborate in the spirit of servant leadership with equal parts head, heart and hustle. We are a team of 38 in the Bay Area and NYC. We come together for monthly lunch & learns and semi-annual retreats and earnestly create space for professional development and learning. We dig into strategy, equity, our own humanity and the intersections among it all, working with the purpose to overcome underemployment, and bringing optimism and fun to the challenge.

Remote Working Policy

We are currently working to integrate occasional, optional safe program activities in person about 5% of the time in Spring 2022.

We continue to follow all CDC and state-mandated guidelines.
