MARS Returnship is a program that provides an on-ramp to women who are looking to restart their careers in technology following a gap in employment. This program provides paid on-the-job training and a partnership approach to prepare the cohorts to successfully rejoin the workforce. Below are a few key aspects that MARS Returnship offers.
Project Work. Cohort members are provided with immersive, hands-on, project-based learning in a fast-paced Agile environment. Projects provided are to address a real business need, giving each Returner real-world experience to put their skills to use. Along with project work, coaching is available throughout the program to provide guidance when needed.
Professional Development. A variety of sessions are provided including some specific to technology, and other more general topics such as productivity or wellness. Friday Fireside Chats feature guest speakers who are brought in to share their personal career journey along with any lessons learned or advice for the group. Professional development also includes being paired with a mentor that serves as a dedicated resource for the duration of the program.
Placement Assistance. Through resume assistance, mock interviews, and networking opportunities, our team of staffing industry experts offer all the resources necessary to help Returners land their perfect career, and to ease the transition back to the full-time work environment.
