"Transitioning back to the workforce after taking time off to be a caregiver can be a challenge. First there is the gap in experience on a resume that many employers may overlook. And second is seeking for opportunities to refresh professional skills. PepsiCo’s experienced internship is a tremendous opportunity to leverage this pool of great talent and provide individuals with additional work experience, skill-refresher and coaching.”
