After the Break: The Benefits of Career Reentry Internship Programs

Online

​Reentry internships are emerging as a special category of progressive action for reintegrating professionals back into the workforce at a later life stage and as a powerful return-to-work strategy for both employers and individuals.

Reentry internships are emerging as a special category of progressive action for reintegrating professionals back into the workforce at a later life stage, and a powerful return-to-work strategy for both employers and individuals. They give the employer the opportunity to connect with high caliber returning professionals at a moment when their childcare, eldercare or other career break responsibilities are reduced or over, and the candidate is ready to fully re-engage in the workforce.

This Jam Session will discuss examples of reentry internship programs at a range of employers, examples of reentry interns, and recommendations for individuals seeking such an arrangement as a return-to-work strategy.

Carol Fishman Cohen is the CEO of iRelaunch, a comprehensive career reentry resource for employers, individuals, universities and professional associations. She is also a TED Speaker, co-leader of the Society of Women Engineers/iRelaunch STEM Reentry Task Force and author.

We'll be live tweeting this Jam Session, so be sure to follow along with @EllevateNtwk and #BackToWork.
