What you bring to the program
On behalf of our client, a major telecommunications company, we are in search of Sr. Program Managers to join our return-to-work program at the company’s offices in the metro-Seattle area starting in late Oct/early Nov 2019. This is a paid, 6-month, returnship designed for professionals returning to the workforce after a career break. The program is built around a cohort-based model that allows individuals to re-enter the workforce in a supported way with a group of fellow returning professionals.

This proven approach fosters camaraderie among colleagues, builds confidence and upgrades technology and professional skills that will be invaluable throughout this next phase of their career.

You will also engage with senior leaders, receive mentorship, and connect with members of the Company’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). At the end of the program, candidates may be eligible for full-time or extended contracting work, but this is not guaranteed.
