Wells Fargo Glide-Relaunch: Military Spouse Internship Program
The military spouse is an oft-overlooked piece of the military puzzle. Every day, thousands of spouses raise families and manage the homefront while their service members defend our great nation. Because of this, many spouses are “unemployed” for many years, which makes reentry into the workforce challenging.
Wells Fargo Glide-Relaunch Program
However, there are some companies who have noticed the plight of the military spouse and have taken steps to help. One such company is Wells Fargo.
The Glide-Relaunch Program is a paid internship-to-full-time program that assists spouses in returning to the workforce after taking a break of at least two years. Participants of this program are granted a significant string of benefits related to well being, financial security, retirement, and work-life balance.
This is an 8-week program that offers support, training, and the resources needed to launch a career with Wells Fargo.
Through structured training given by senior Wells Fargo employees, participants will network with peers and other employees, all while developing skills and knowledge related to financial products and services.
After the initial training, mentorship and development continue through on-the-job training covering the following areas:
- Teamwork – participants are exposed to various areas of operations that serve internal and external customers.
- Professional Support – paired with an experienced Wells Fargo employee, challenging situations will prompt feedback and coaching.
- Leadership – bank leadership offer insights into industry trends and business objectives.
- Networking– formal events will be offered periodically, sometime remotely, that will offer great opportunities to network.
