APTA's Career Day Is Approaching

May 14, APTA's National Public Transportation Career Day, is fast approaching but public transportation agencies and business members still have time to reach out to elementary, middle and secondary schools and youth groups to engage young people in activities that showcase the industry's diverse and interesting careers.

The annual event is part of APTA's workforce development initiative. Members can get involved by conducting a career fair, encouraging staff to take their children to work, distributing small giveaways, conducting tours of public transit facilities, encouraging job shadowing, staging mock interviews, reviewing typical job expectations and responsibilities for some positions and distributing materials to schools.
