UniversalGiving Returnships are intended for strong professionals seeking new opportunities. We understand that there are accomplished professionals who may be making a change in their career for several reasons. Perhaps you are re-entering the workforce after time off, a sabbatical or family leave. You may be hoping to make a career shift more in line with your goals and values, or perhaps you simply want to learn a new skill. UniversalGiving is eager to work together with you, forwarding the organization’s goals and yours as well.
