Welcome to CDM Smith.

CDM Smith's Reboot Re-Entry Program

Two steps forward, two steps back. Sometimes detours happen in our well-planned lives. If you have had a break in your science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) career and are now ready to get back in the game, let CDM Smith help you restart your career by partic­i­pat­ing in our career re-entry program. Partnering with the Society of Women Engineers and iRelaunch, we are offering a 12-week program for those who left their STEM career for 2+ years and are now wanting to return. This is a paid, full time temporary opportunity to help you train and rejoin peers in your field.
