Top Denver Tech Companies Partner to Train and Place Employees Who Paused Their Careers
DENVER, September 14, 2015 – ReadyTalk, a leading provider of online conferencing and webinar services, today announced the launch of ReturnShip, a professional development and paid internship program designed for individuals who long to return to work after a career hiatus. In addition, to practical work experience, the program provides access to a variety of opportunities including networking events, resume building workshops and communication training.
“There are a variety of reasons why successful, career-driven people may temporarily leave the workforce, and today’s fast paced business environment can make it a challenge to return to where they left off in their careers,” said Courtney Graham, ReadyTalk HR Director. “The ReturnShip program provides training, networking opportunities and a variety of resources to ease the transition and help people go back to work, regardless of how long they have been away.”
The ReturnShip 22-week paid internships will run from Oct. 5, 2015 - Mar. 9, 2016 (winter break: Dec. 21- Jan. 1) and both full-time and part-time positions are available. The program includes pre-boarding, on-boarding, professional development, 360 reviews and feedback sessions. Interns will have responsibilities that mirror the professional activities of their colleagues.
The program was started by Return Path and now includes many Colorado technology companies including MWH, ReadyTalk, Return Path, SendGrid, and SpotXchange.
“ReadyTalk’s ReturnShip program is a unique opportunity for anyone who wants to work for a top tech company in Colorado, build their network and update their skills for today’s workplace,” continued Graham.
ReadyTalk is currently accepting applications for all ReturnShip positions.
