In the fall of 2008, the firm launched the Goldman Sachs ReturnshipSM Program.
The first program of its kind aims to provide individuals re-entering the workforce with an opportunity to sharpen the skills essential for “on-ramping.” Based
on the success of the pilot program, we are proud to continue this signature on-ramping initiative by
hosting a 2009 ReturnshipSM Program.
In May 2006, Goldman Sachs launched the Goldman Sachs New DirectionsSM initiative to provide talented
individuals who have "off-ramped," or taken a voluntary break in their careers,
with guidance and coaching on how to make a successful transition back into the workforce. To further
this mission, the firm launched the Goldman Sachs ReturnshipSM.
The ReturnshipSM Program aims to prepare on-rampers for a return to the workforce.
Throughout the eight week program, “returnees” are provided with an opportunity to:
- Explore a new career path or reacquaint themselves with new market trends.
- Gain work experience and strengthen technical skills.
- Assess the feasibility of career-life balance while returning to the workforce on a full-time basis
