GM Introduces Take 2 Internship for Women

“. . . you’ll polish your skills, acquire new ones, and restore the confidence you need to launch a new phase in your professional journey . . . Your comeback story begins now.” – GM Website

Earlier this year, General Motors announced that they would be introducing a pivotal and innovative internship program to their line-up. Aimed at experienced women in the field of engineering, the program offers women a chance to re-enter the workforce after a 2, or more, year hiatus from their career.

Take 2 is a 12-week internship program for women  with technical backgrounds in vehicle engineering, manufacturing engineering, or manufacturing operations. Women involved with Take 2 will receive quality training, professional development, and the chance to network with other technical leaders to gain a better understanding of GM’s functional areas and structure.

To increase STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) – a larger initiative powered by the Society of Women Engineers and iRelaunch – Take 2 provides participants with the opportunity to “refresh their workforce skills and rebuild their network,” all while being able to work with actual engineering situations at GM.

“GM is proud to be a founding member of the STEM Re-entry Task force, and understands there are many high-caliber, technical women who have taken a break from their careers and are ready to come back to work but may feel out of touch with their former professional network.” – Kristen Siemen, executive director Global Thermal Engineering and executive champion of the program.

Take 2 began on April 1, 2016 and sought out talented and capable women who were looking to tackle challenging opportunities in the vehicle workforce. John Quattrone, Senior VP of Global Human Resources explains that Take 2 is a “win-win opportunity for women and GM”, stating that the opportunity is one of the many of the commitments GM has made to support women’s careers in the car industry.
