What is Intuit Again and how the did the program start?
Mimi Turner: Intuit Again is an initiative that inspires and provides an opportunity for technologists to return to work after taking a break in their career for caregiving purposes.
This platform not only gives candidates a chance to work at one of the "Best Companies to Work For" (#1 in India, #13 in the U.S.), but it also provides technical and other training to sharpen their professional skills.
Introduced in 2015 in India, as a program to tap into a vast pool of talent, Intuit Again helped transform the professional trajectory for dozens of candidates. Upon its success, the program in the United States was launched in Spring 2018.
We're proud that to date, more than 75 percent of the participants who graduate from our returnship programs go on to accept full-time jobs at Intuit or one of our partner organizations.
Each year, Intuit Again returns stronger and more committed to give additional professionals the opportunity to work with a great team at Intuit and have meaningful impact as they begin their journey. Again.

MT: Intuit Again is a full-time, paid, 16-week "returnship" filled with projects / initiatives, growth and development workshops, leadership chats, technical training, and an opportunity to grow professionally and personally in a supportive environment.

If you could describe Intuit in one word, what would it be and why?
MT: Prosperity. To cultivate, enable, and power it for not only our employees, but for all the customers we serve, globally.
Why did you decide to partner with PowerToFly?
MT: The PowerToFly mission - valuing gender diversity and inclusion. To grow the power and impact of our work in these areas through recruiting.
Can you share any testimonials from past participants?
MT: Yes! Here are some testimonials from a few of our Spring 2018 returnees:
"I fell in love with the core values of the company and how these values are reflected in every day work. Also, I can see a lot of women in leadership and all other roles. This illustrates a diverse culture and makes Intuit a great place to work." - Valli
"We received wonderful support from Intuit Again and met almost everyone from the very impressive Intuit leadership team. Thank You!" - Rada
"The Intuit Again program is like a helping hand for people who don't have much family support in a different country and who want to get back to work after taking a break. I was really grateful and proud to be part of this program, and I was glad to have this wonderful experience to boost up my confidence to get back to work. All through the returnship period, we had different types of workshops and Q&A sessions which were really awesome. Overall, this was an awesome experience: thanks to the entire Intuit Again team. I would highly recommend the Intuit Again program to others as well." - Mekha

But after suffering through it for a few months, it's now one of her favorite things to do. "I get so much joy out of it," says Farnaz. The same thing happened when she started making pottery: she says the first month was "terrible" as she struggled to shape the clay with no success but shares that she came to love the process of building after getting through an initial period of learning and adjusting.
