Ready for a career comeback?

Now’s the time with Qualcomm’s Returnship Program

Just as there are many reasons for taking a career break — raising a family, caring for elders, addressing personal health issues, planning a second career, or simply taking a well-deserved break — there are many reasons for choosing to come back to work. But re-entering the workforce, as you may be discovering, isn’t always easy.

Finding a new job can be intimidating for anyone, but it can be particularly daunting for someone who’s been out of the workforce for a few years. The good news is that it’s never too late to re-enter the workforce. In fact, now couldn’t be a better time for a career comeback — and to be part of the Invention Age.

We are now accepting applications for Engineering and IT openings in our San Diego location.
