With an ongoing commitment to the WTS-LA mission and goals, the College Outreach committee aims to connect aspiring transportation professionals with networking programs and professional development opportunities and access to potential employers in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. This committee engages with students in community college/trade schools, undergraduate, and graduate-level coursework who have an interest in transportation-related careers. Some College Outreach opportunities for students include the following:
- Annual WTS-LA Corporate Partner/Student Mixer
- Professional Development Programs, such as Resume Writing and Interview Skills Workshops
- Project Tours
- Scholarship Opportunities
- Office Visits with Public Sector Leaders
WTS student membership is complimentary for the first year.
The first program in 2021 will be a job fair scheduled for May 13, 2021. The College Outreach Committee is planning this virtual program to connect students to internships and entry-level positions with companies and public agencies.
The committee is seeking interest from participating firms, preferably those who are currently hiring entry-level or internship positions. If your company is interested, please College Outreach co-chairs Rachel Om and Jackie Martinez at CollegeOutreach@wtsla.org.
