“Re-entering the workforce, you need a little confidence. I got that by seeing other people in orientation. They were just like me; they were nervous, but they had that energy and enthusiasm.”
Usha Madapura is a systems engineer for Otis. Before entering the Re-Empower program, Usha had been working at a small business she launched for tutoring children after school in math. However, she says, “technology was my first love…I realized I wanted to do this because this is what I love to do.” So she decided to reenter the tech industry. Madapura advises people who are re-entering the workforce that though “the process may take a long time, you should apply, regardless of gaps in experience, because it’s worth it when you make it!”
