BOSTON - CDM Smith is excited to be the first in our industry to launch a career re-entry program in partnership with iRelaunch and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). The Reboot Re-Entry Program engages profes­sion­als in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields back into the workforce after a 2-year or more break. CDM Smith is offering this employment program to qualified candidates who want to return to work. Over the course of this 12-week program, partic­i­pants are paid and work full-time, rejoining peers in their field, regaining knowledge valuable to their profession, guided by mentors and empowered through hands-on experience. 

“At CDM Smith, we understand that there are many reasons to press pause on your career, whether for family or personal reasons,” says Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tim Wall. “I could not be more excited about the possi­bil­i­ties to introduce incredibly talented individuals to our firm and help them find their way back to realizing their career journey. We hire for careers, not for jobs, and the Reboot Re-Entry Program is an important ingredient for us to deliver on that philosophy.” 

CDM Smith will begin onboarding partic­i­pants in January 2019 exclusively in our Boston head­quar­ters and will be adding locations as the program grows. We are eager to tap into a large pool of high-caliber profes­sion­als and are committed to providing a challenging, progressive and inclusive work environment that fosters personal leadership, career growth and development for every employee. Offering an unmatched employee experience, we intend to retain the best and brightest profes­sion­als in the industry. Our Reboot Re-Entry Program supports this goal, beginning with oppor­tu­ni­ties in the following disciplines: 

  • Civil engineer (includes trans­porta­tion, geot­ech­ni­cal, structural, water resources)
  • Envi­ron­men­tal engineer
  • Electrical engineer
  • Automation engineer
  • Mechanical engineer
  • Planner
  • Scientist
