Room for Advancement
Retirement trends are growing throughout the organization. That means more advanced positions are opening up all the time - making this a great time for current and potential BLM employees who desire professional growth and career advancement.
This organization is dedicated to advancing talent from within. With a wide range of training, mentorship and development opportunities, you can quickly build a multi-faceted career. As you spend more time with the BLM and develop more professional interests and specialties, you may decide to take on new roles and responsibilities. That's something we not only support, but we encourage. Every BLM employee has the potential to become a leader.
Through the BLM's National Training Center (NTC) in Phoenix, Arizona, both new and seasoned BLM employees participate in over 200 classroom and web-based courses annually.
In addition, the NTC broadcasts instructional television and live leadership messages to over 130 BLM Satellite Network sites nationally. The NTC's full-service television capability facilitates ongoing communication between leadership and field employees about policy and organizational change.
To supplement the NTC's services, BLM employees have access to the following job-related training resources:
- The Department of the Interior's employee training.
- The training facilities and training of other Federal agencies.
- Classroom and online training provided by private industry sources.
- Degree and certificate programs at colleges and technical schools.
- Lectures provided at career fairs, conferences and similar events.
Finally, the most important training resource for BLM employees is the day-to-day experience in the field, learning from both individual and group accomplishments.
At the BLM, we encourage knowledge sharing through short- and long-term work details. We encourage mentorship at every level so that our seasonal professionals can share their valuable experience and the organization's history with our future leaders.
