Workforce Development Zone Builds Careers

The Houston Chapter of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) has planned a series of programs in the Workforce Development Learning Zone on the EXPO floor. The schedule includes a luncheon featuring public transportation industry speakers, a session showcasing projects and initiatives of YPT members, and a “pitch” session (patterned on the television show Shark Tank) highlighting the best innovations in public transit.

he Mid-Level Managers Magnification Program will feature a workshop on career progression in the zone, and updates will be available regarding training programs for public transit’s frontline workforce.

In partnership with Rutgers University, APTA will launch the Transit Virtual Career Network at the Learning Zone. Live demonstrations will show how to use this new resource for job seekers and public transit agencies and businesses in recruiting frontline employees.
