Experienced Professionals

Not only students are applying for internships.

Most people think of internships as opportunities only for students, but this is not true in today’s world of work. Many employers are hiring experienced professionals for internships as a transition into another career, or coming back into the workforce after a break due to circumstances or military service. These types of internships have many different names including "Return to Work Internships," "Returnships," and "Mid-career Internships."

How are "returnships" different from traditional internships?

The basic internship is an opportunity to provide practical work experience and develop skills within a desired occupation or profession. A "returnship" is similar in that it is a temporary work experience within a desired occupation or profession, but it is specifically geared to help individuals launch back into the workforce. Traditionally employers shied away from job seekers with employment gaps but things continue to change as they recognize the skills experienced professionals can bring to their business.
