The Transit Virtual Career Network (TVCN) is the third in a series of online career portals developed to help Americans find good-paying, family-supporting positions in growing industries. The Transit VCN leverages an existing VCN platform, which includes a Healthcare VCN and a Green Economy VCN.
- Transit is a $55 billion industry, directly employing more than 400,000 people in the U.S., many in “middle skill” jobs that pay well and require less than a college degree.
- The industry is expecting strong hiring growth as nearly half of the American public transportation workforce is eligible to retire within the next 5 to 10 years.
- These numbers cut across all levels – from top-level management to front-line workers.
- The exit of these workers – coming as experts expect demand for public transportation to grow – will mean hundreds of thousands of job opportunities across public and private sectors!
- If you are a career counselor, the TVCN can help you help those in need of job and career pathway.
- Search for jobs, or look up education and training programs.
- Connect with career counseling.
- Read interviews from those in transit careers now.
- Explore financial aid.
- Investigate aptitude and assessment tools that work whether you are just starting out or looking to switch careers.
