Introducing Audible’s “Next Chapter” Returnship Program
Audible’s “Next Chapter” Returnship Program is an 18-week paid full-time internship for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off for caregiving. The program is open to professionals who have at least 5 years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for at least one year to focus on caring for a child or other dependent. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply.

At Audible, we introduced our “Next Chapter” Returnship Program because we appreciate the skills you can offer, the perspective you provide, and the contributions you will make. This program offers you a chance to revamp your skills, update your resume with new experiences, and make connections with other professionals transitioning back to the workforce. It also offers support through Path Forward, a nonprofit organization focused on empowering people who’ve taken a break for caregiving to transition back to the workforce.

This 18-week Returnship program is 100 percent virtual. Upon successful completion of the Returnship, there is a possibility of an offer for full-time employment. We expect candidates for a full-time role to reside or relocate to be within commuting distance of either our Newark, NJ or Cambridge, MA hub, once we return to in-person work 1-3 days a week (currently scheduled for Q1 2022). If you are interested in a remote full-time opportunity, please discuss this with your recruiter.

She credits the returnship program for her smooth transition back into her career. “The program was so well done, in every aspect…it was clear that Audible put a lot of thought and consideration into it and that the company wanted everyone they accepted into the program to be successful,” she says. Kathryn tells us about how she prepared for her return, how Audible supported her during her remote returnship experience, and her advice for future returners. Read her story here.

“I’m thrilled Audible is pursuing this program. By offering caregivers the ability to onramp back into the workforce, we are recruiting and developing highly motivated talent while also continuing our commitment to creating an inclusive team.” – Tim Martin, Audible’s Chief Technology Officer
