Build a Workforce Pipeline with APTA's Career Day

Does your organization have a steady pipeline of new employees?

Now’s the time to introduce K-12 students to careers in public transportation, says APTA’s Human Resources Committee, which is sponsoring the association’s 6th annual National Public Transportation Career Day, Thursday, May 12.

Committee Chair Lydia Grose, director of engineering and design, civil engineering, at Philadelphia’s Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, is encouraging public transit agencies and businesses to host an event to showcase the benefits and rewards of a transit career. Suggestions include conducting tours of facilities, visiting schools, holding interactive demonstrations, sponsoring poster contests and hosting career awareness programs.

In addition, the committee is conducting a survey to gather information about outreach initiatives to students, either as part of the career day or throughout the year. Take the short survey here.
