Glide Relaunch Overview

Wells Fargo's Glide Relaunch program is designed to help those with a recent voluntary 2+years break in work history 'Glide back into the workforce'.  As an organization, we have always recognized that workforce diversity is fundamental to growth, competitiveness, and future-readiness. The Glide Relaunch program was envisioned to address a specific issue which for years, has been the cause for an imbalance in the workforce composition worldwide - the loss of vast talent pools in the form of people unable to continue their careers due to personal commitments.  This 10-week program offers support, training, and resources needed to relaunch careers as leaders at Wells Fargo.

Across the world, people take career breaks for a number of reasons with a number of factors that make career reentry difficult after an extended leave of absence. Be it catching up with industry technologies and practices, loss of confidence, or concerns about balancing personal and professional commitments, hiring managers and job applicants are equally apprehensive where a career break is concerned. This does not take away a person's inherent capability, or their ability to reintegrate into the workforce, especially if they have the right support. In launching the Glide Relaunch Program, our goal is to provide support and to address these challenges from both sides of the table.

During this full time, paid virtual internship, you will have the opportunity to learn from successful leaders at Wells Fargo who will share their expertise and knowledge to help you become a future leader. You will develop an understanding of Wells Fargo's unique values and culture, which you will experience first-hand in your interactions with highly talented team members.  At the end of this accelerated program, with successful performance, you will have the opportunity to be evaluated to continue in equivalent full-time roles.
