The COVID-19 pandemic has made a significant impact on our economy. In these turbulent times, Acuity Knowledge Partners is presenting an opportunity to female professionals, who have taken a break, to revive their careers through a paid internship programme.
With Step Up, we are offering female professionals on a career break an opportunity to re-establish themselves professionally and restart their corporate careers. Step Up is a prudently designed training-cum-internship programme that prepares them for a second successful innings in the corporate world. Through skill-gap analysis, focused mentoring, re-skilling and up skilling, on-the-job training and smooth onboarding, we facilitate a seamless transition from being on a break to being ready to be back in the business.
It is a unique opportunity for you to learn new skills, sharpen it further and transform your career that was put on hold due to circumstances beyond your control.
