Frequently asked questions:

What’s the process to request a waiver for the $100 commitment fee?
Send a letter to explaining your situation, your commitment to the program, and how you think the program will change your life.
What are the requirements of the program?
All students are required to have the technological support to learn and work remotely, this includes having access to computers, wifi, and programs like Zoom and Slack. Once admitted to the 4-week, full-time program and before it officially starts, you will be expected to complete assignments designed to help you get the most out of the experience. You also need to be available for full-time employment starting in August.
Do I have to relocate for the training or the internship?
You can complete the upfront 4-week training 100% remotely. We currently have 30+ employer partners around the country and internationally. Some are offering paid internship opportunities that can also be completed remotely and others may require in-person presence or may be restricted to applicants in their local market. If you complete an internship and receive a full-time offer from a company you may be asked to relocate.
Is the internship paid and how long is it?
Internships awarded at the end of the training program are intended to run for 8 weeks and pay $10,000 in gross income. Whether or not you are granted an internship, SV Academy will provide you with interview training and job search support as you look for your first Customer Success role.
How can I qualify for the paid internship?
Students will be matched with sponsoring companies based on overall performance which factors attendance and class engagement, as well as completing and passing assignments, and based on the needs and requirements of our employer partners.
What if I don’t qualify for a paid internship?
Regardless of whether you secure a paid internship, we will provide you the tools you need to pursue and land your first Customer Success role.
What are my chances of getting hired by the company where I complete an internship?
Many of the companies participating in the program have indicated that they are planning or are open to the possibility of converting an internship into a full-time employee role. However, there are no guarantees as getting hired by a company depends on other factors including timing and fit.
