Do you know someone interested in a transit job? A new workforce development tool can help.
The Transit Virtual Career Network provides information for individuals preparing for a career in transit, with details on nearly 60 different career choices. Users can apply for jobs, identify educational and training opportunities, access online training, and apply for financial aid. The site provides information on demand for jobs in specific geographic regions. Information on salary, educational requirements, and employment outlook for each career are featured along with transcripts from interviews with workers in some of the careers.
The Transit Virtual Career Network was developed through a grant from the Federal Transit Administration's Innovative Transit Workforce Development Program by a multi-partner initiative led by the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development and the Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation, both at Rutgers University.
