“I am amazed at how many people say, ‘Wow! My mom could do that, my sister, my friend.’ Everyone knows someone who has taken a break and would be interested in this program!”
Karen Hooper, a senior project engineer at UTC Aerospace Systems has a technical background and over 15 years of work experience in the aerospace industry. The Re-Empower program allowed her “an on-ramp back to her career.” During her break, Hooper managed her children’s sports teams, was a Boy Scout leader and helped launch a nonprofit for at-risk youth, which allowed her to continue using her project management skills in managing budgets, schedules, conflicts and priorities. Her advice to other potential candidates? “Go for it! You have a lot to give. Use the skill set that you strengthened working outside of your former industry job to a new position and career opportunity.” Hooper says the Re-Empower Program was an excellent way for her to pick up where she left off, resulting in a win-win for both UTC Aerospace Systems and her!
