Ford partnered with SWE + iRelaunch to develop its Re-Entry Program, which aims to help individuals get back into the workforce, who have left the workforce or have been underemployed for two or more years. Ford offers re-entry candidates a full-time position while providing tools to successfully re-acclimate into the workforce. Participants will be able to confidently return to the workforce not only in their technical field but also in a supportive environment designed for success.
