Wells Fargo’s Glide — Relaunch program helps professionals resume their careers after taking a break for a life event.
Glide – Relaunch is a paid internship-to-full-time program for talented professionals returning to the workforce after taking a voluntary career break of at least 2 years. For available roles see below.
The Glide-Relaunch Programme
Wells Fargo’s Glide-Relaunch program is designed to help those with a current voluntary 2+ year career break “Glide back into the workforce”. As an organisation, we have always recognised that workforce diversity is fundamental to growth, competitiveness, and future-readiness. The Glide-Relaunch program was envisioned to address a specific issue, which for years has been the cause for an imbalance in the workforce composition worldwide; the loss of vast talent pools in the form of people unable to continue their careers due to personal commitments.
Glide-Relaunch provides the necessary resources to support and accelerate your exposure here at Wells Fargo with a program manager-led experience that includes a skills refresh, training, curriculum and senior networking opportunities. The aim is that this program will give you the chance to learn from successful leaders at Wells Fargo who will share their expertise and knowledge to help you become a future leader.
You will develop an understanding of Wells Fargo’s unique values and culture, which you will experience first-hand in your interactions with highly talented team members. Based on your performance during your 8-week program experience, you may be considered for a full time employment opportunity at the end of the programme.
Our 8-week programme will run from September through November 2021.

For 10 years, Karla Kaplan steadily rose through the ranks in finance, starting in deal structuring and origination, and working her way up to become a director of loan syndicate, sales, and trading for a large international bank. It was a dream job, but while on maternity leave after having her first child, Kaplan realised she wasn’t ready to go back to work once her leave ended. Like many working mothers before her, she made the tough decision to quit her job.
“It was such a hard thing to do, even for the most wonderful of reasons,” Kaplan recalled. “I had worked so hard for so long to advance my career and reach the director level. To jump off a cliff and leave and not know when or how to come back was really difficult.”
Karla Kaplan found her way back through Wells Fargo’s inaugural Glide — Relaunch program, a 10-week internship-to-full-time program that aims to bring talented professionals with at least seven years of experience back into the workforce after taking a voluntary two-year minimum break for a life event.
Kaplan, whose son, Connor, is now three years old, said the program was invaluable for resetting her career trajectory, as well as the bond formed between her classmates.
