The Swing Shift is the destination for women in career transition.

Designed specifically for women who are moving into a new field or returning to the workforce after an extended absence. The Swing Shift offers programs and services that equip our clients and cohorts with the necessary tools and mindset to compete in a modern job search.


We partner with mission-aligned industry leaders and employers that are committed to enhancing and advancing career opportunities for women.

"After many years at the same company, I was ready for a change. However, I really struggled with how to make those first steps. A friend referred me to The Swing Shift, and together with their team, I started down this new career path."
