ployees undergo, including applying and
interviewing. Once hired, students must
complete Palm Tran's orientation first
and then a separate orientation with Finke.
She will guide each student to focus on
three learning goals and objectives and
pinpoint their interests prior to starting
with the selected department supervisor
or manager.
Created to offer a real-work experience,
the program is a buy-in from the
department hiring the student. Supervisors/managers
must fill out a request
for a student employee listing specific
departmental goals and objectives along
with detailed descriptions of the student's
responsibilities. The position is not to replace
a position or to cover duties such as
filing, reception or errands.
The supervisor/manager will be involved
in screening applicants and interviewing,
along with developing learning
goals and providing quarterly and final
evaluations. Part of the program will
give students the opportunity to spend
time in three different departments at
Palm Tran. In " A Day in the Life, " each
student can work on specific projects
and learn from another part of the public
transportation operation.
The program is structured to benefit
both Palm Tran and students, Finke says.
For Palm Tran, along with recognizing
future talent, it also increases involvement
and builds partnerships with educational
institutions, allows freedom for professional
staff to pursue creative projects
and supports leadership skills in current
employees as they become mentors.
For students, it affords them a way
to gain practical experience in all areas
of public transportation, work on their
professional strengths and weaknesses
while enhancing their self-confidence
