Employees discouraged from using traineeships
To the Editor:
I read the (Navigating Civil Service column in the May Communicator about traineeships) and found it to be quite humorous that state Health Department personnel train people to do the exact opposite.
They train you to never fast track and never seek advance placement — always go full probation. They make a reasonable case for it, but there shouldn’t be a program that should be available to everyone but discouraged to use. What is the point?
Editor’s note: The purpose of the Navigating Civil Service column is to explain features and rules of state civil service that can be confusing to those who are unfamiliar with them. While one state agency may discourage its employees from using a particular feature, it may be popular elsewhere in state service.
