Why MARS Returnship?

MARS Returnship is passionate about supporting you as a talented professional in your return to work while striving to make a positive difference.

Our focus is on empowering you to build on the skills you developed earlier in your career and using them as a springboard to your future role.

We have decades of experience with the technology placement industry and with the selection process for aptitude and soft skills. Our program is highly selective as we focus on the skills that you bring to the table that we know we cannot teach, such as commitment, drive, desire to succeed, hard work, and being a team player.

The Benefits: How it works

Our 3-6 month MARS Returnship program provides you with projects that match your expertise, interests, and abilities. Our program is focused on project work, coaching, and professional development, as well as networking events.

Although Returners are traditionally women, others are welcome to apply.

The MARS Returnship program focuses on:

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 ease the transition back to the work environment.

Our objective is to provide a safe space for Returners to overcome the obstacles and challenges faced when re-entering the workforce. Content will focus on self-elevation, interviewing skills, and how you can prepare to further your career in the field.
