Paid Corporate Return to Work Programs Around the World

This is a list of paid, corporate return to work programs. Primarily mid-career internship programs are featured, but also included are event-based career re-entry programs or direct-hire programs with transitional support. This list features companies that run their own recurring programs, and not centrally-administered initiatives such as that of our close partner the OnRamp Fellowship for relaunching lawyers.

At iRelaunch, we have been tracking career re-entry programs of all kinds since 2008. In 2012, iRelaunch Chair and Co-Founder Carol Fishman Cohen authored our report on the growing use of mid-career internships or internship-like experiences as an effective vehicle for professionals to return to work after time away. This report was the basis for her seminal HBR article "The 40-Year-Old Intern," which was the first to recognize the emergence of mid-career internships and to predict the proliferation of formal corporate reentry internship programs that we see today. 

We have seen a significant uptick in the number of corporate return to work programs since 2016. Global hubs of career re-entry program activity center in the U.S., U.K. and India. Shoutout to Women Returners for their work in the UK career re-entry space and their list of U.K. programs which is a helpful resource for us in compiling this list. 

Some programs say "positions are unavailable." This is because applications are closed at the time, as most of these programs only run at designated times during the year. To be notified of open application periods, make sure you register for our mailing list. Note - companies that may be testing a re-entry program concept or 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.
