Ready to restart your career? Path Forward offers returning professionals in the Bay Area the opportunity to restart their careers with companies that appreciate the skills they offer, the perspective they provide, and the contributions they can make. Our partner companies are offering paid returnships–internships for experienced professionals. The program is open to individuals who have at least five years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for two or more years for caregiving purposes.

The current opportunities are listed below, with new ones being added on a rolling basis. Note: Most of these returnships are remote for the time being, but some will become location-based as offices reopen. Please refer to each job link for more information.
