From Career Break to Career Breakthrough

At Johnson & Johnson we believe that a resume gap is an advantage. Our Re-Ignite return-to-work program is a paid returnship for experienced professionals who have taken a break of two years or more from a STEM, Manufacturing, or Design (STEM2D) career. The program acts as a network of support for the next phase of your personal career journey and beyond. The Re-Ignite experience includes:

  • Projects based on your professional passions
  • Comprehensive onboarding and industry-specific skills training
  • Paid on-the-job learning opportunities
  • Support from Johnson & Johnson mentors and program alumni
  • Consideration for a full-time role at J&J after completing the program

We believe a healthier future is one in which people can take the time they need away from work without sacrificing personal, professional and economic potential. Because your unique experiences and perspectives are crucial for taking on – and solving – the world’s most critical health challenges, Re-Ignite was created to help you come back strong and make an impact from day one.
