Career Relaunch Program For Professionals
• Sep 4, 2019

Program targets individuals with career gaps of two or more years

TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank®, today announced that it is launching a new program to enable individuals to re-enter the financial services industry following a career break. Working with iRelaunch, a leader in creating successful career re-launch programs, TD's Commercial Bank will offer a career program for return-to-work professionals in the metro New York City area who have been out of the traditional workforce for two or more years.

This program, which is a first for TD Bank, offers professionals a successful pathway back into financial services. A study by the Harvard Business Review shows that up to 43% of women leave the workforce to raise a family, take care of aging parents or for personal health reasons, but many eventually seek to return to work.

"Career relaunch programs present a huge opportunity to tap into a skilled pool of talented individuals who want to return to the traditional workforce," said Chris Giamo, Head of Commercial Bank at TD Bank. "TD Bank strongly supports the success of all of our employees – and especially women in the banking sector – and I am thrilled that we are launching this program as a key part of that effort."

Qualified financial professionals in commercial lending and credit management selected for the program will participate in a 16-week career transition program that includes refreshing skills, mentoring, coaching, networking and personal development.

“We are thrilled to work with TD Bank on the launch of their Career Relaunch return to work program. We have seen firsthand the effort, commitment and resources invested in this program by TD Bank,” said Carol Fishman Cohen, Chair and Co-founder of iRelaunch. “Career Relaunch is positioned to be a first-rate experience for the professionals who are fortunate enough to be selected to participate, and we look forward to working directly with them as they transition back to work.”

Applications and more information are available at Applications are currently open for the first program, which will kick-off in January 2020.
