If you are looking to reenter the workforce after any period of time, you may feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to start. One good way is by conducting a returnship. Returnships are like internships for those of us who have been out of school and out of the workforce for some time. There are a few different ways to approach this possibility.
iRelaunch is an online resource for people reentering the workforce. The company hosts regular career events, and the websites offers webinars, career counseling, and general advice. Their comprehensive list of companies worldwide who offer career reentry programs can be found here.
Workplaces including Goldman-Sachs and MIT offer returnships, but if the company you’re hoping to work for doesn’t have such a program, you may be able to suggest the possibility to them. It will likely end up benefitting the company as much as it will benefit you.
