Job Description

Returnship Program

Attention professionals looking to return to the workforce after a career break of two years or more! The State of Utah invites you to apply for our pilot return-to-work program. This 16-week program is similar to an internship and is designed to provide the experience, training, skills, and mentoring needed to successfully return to the workforce after a hiatus. Using a cohort model, participants will navigate this professional and personal life transition together, bolstered by expert group coaching and customized programming.

The program will commence the day after Labor Day, with the first week of the program consisting of learning, development and workplace orientation.

This is an experience-only returnship opportunity. Please note, that while we will provide you access to resources that will enable you to explore further employment opportunities, your participation does not guarantee employment with the State of Utah upon conclusion of the program.

The Returnee will interact with relevant offices, organizations and stakeholders to collect and compile information related to energy needs and opportunities in Utah.
