50+ Paid Corporate Reentry Internship Programs Around the World

Tracking the continuing growth of reentry internship programs worldwide

At iRelaunch, we have been tracking career reentry programs of all kinds since 2008. In 2012, we published a report on the growing use of of internships or internship-like experiences as an effective vehicle for professionals to return to work after time away.  We described the phenomenon as "quietly emerging" at the time. Not anymore. We have seen a huge uptick in the number of corporate reentry internship programs created since 2012 and are expecting this growth to continue. Global hubs of reentry internship program activity center in the U.S., U.K. and India. Shoutout to Women Returners for their work in the UK career reentry space and their list of UK programs which was a helpful resource for us. Artwork credit goes to Harvard Business Review, as it accompanied iRelaunch CEO Carol Fishman Cohen's seminal HBR article "The 40-Year-Old Intern."

At this point, we thought it would be helpful to the iRelaunch community to see all the corporate reentry internship programs on one simple list, including links to program information wherever possible. The list is below. Remember this is a list of active corporate paid reentry internship programs. Some companies that may be testing the concept with 1 or 2 returning interns, or that have not set up a landing page to formalize the program, may not be included right away. Also if a company is listed more than once with different program names, that means they have separate programs running in different geographic areas, as opposed to a single program with cohorts in different locations. 

We would like to crowdsource the updating of the list!  If you are aware of a program that is missing from the list, one that has become inactive, or have any other edits, please email us at [email protected]. Thank you.  HERE'S THE LIST
