In 2022, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston joined the STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Reentry Task force and partnered with iRelaunch and the Society of Women Engineers to establish the Fed Resurgence pilot program. Fed Resurgence is a dedicated career reentry program for the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston to hire professionals who have taken a career break and are actively seeking a return to the workforce. Boston Fed values professionals who have taken career breaks and understands that time can be enriching and broaden perspectives.
Fed Resurgence will allow experienced professionals who have taken a career break to apply to participate in a 16-week paid work program. A successful candidate will work in a role alongside Boston Fed teammates, reporting to a manager who has been trained to manage professionals seeking career reentry. To ensure success throughout their time at the Bank, each program participant will be assigned a Boston Fed employee mentor for support and guidance throughout their program. Subject to performance and feedback throughout the program, qualified candidates may be offered full-time employment at the Boston Fed if there is an applicable position.
