US Returnship® Program Opens for Applications
The Goldman Sachs Returnship® Program, which helps talented professionals restart their careers after an extended absence from the workforce, is now accepting applications for the 2017 season.
This paid, 10-week program was designed specifically for those who left the workforce for two or more years and are ready to return. Since 2008, the program has offered participants exposure to the vast network of resources at Goldman Sachs, from training, networking and support from the firm’s senior leaders, to hands-on work experience with meaningful responsibilities in a variety of divisions.
“At Goldman Sachs, we are committed to hiring individuals who have a wide range of backgrounds and experiences,” says Gary Cohn, President and Chief Operating Officer of Goldman Sachs, as well as the senior sponsor of the Returnship® program. “The program is an important way to do just that – it connects us with professionals who bring unique perspectives and impressive skillsets and are seeking to onramp back into the workforce.”
“The Returnship program accelerated my relaunch – I didn't have to explain the years that I was out of the workforce or how I fit into the organization,” says Sangita, a participant in the 2016 program and now a full-time associate in the Finance division. “I was able to assess my fit in my department of choice before making a long-term commitment, and most importantly, it offered me the opportunity to do challenging work with people that I like and respect and who appreciate that I bring valuable experience to the table.”
Returnship candidates can apply to any of our divisions in participating offices.
