I had a very successful career as a corporate restructuring consultant. After years of traveling every week, the opportunity to stay at home with my kids presented itself, and I jumped on it. Ten years later, I missed the camaraderie of working on a team toward a common goal. I joined a “Back to Business” group that helped me with resume building and networking. After switching my LinkedIn to “let recruiters find me,” Bandwidth reached out. I am thankful I found a group that supported my desire to rejoin the workforce full time and I’m proud to be at Bandwidth as they start the Returnship Program.
As a parent trying to navigate re-entry into the workforce, I wanted to find a company where I could work hard and then disconnect to spend time with my family. Bandwidth’s Returnship was the perfect fit. I enjoyed the challenging work, learned new things every day, and got to enjoy my family in the evening. In the marketing team, I found a team that was pivotal in helping me thrive and grow professionally!

While in the Marine Corps, I learned invaluable, transferable skills on telecommunications and leadership. I made the transition out of the Marines to pursue a career in the private sector to grow and develop outside of my career. The transition was difficult—I wasn’t sure how to adapt and leverage my skills for a company. Bandwidth understood my need for a different type of support while navigating the workplace. I hope other veterans like me can use this Returnship to transition into civilian life while being supported & celebrated by an employer.
