The purpose of the Management Talent Exchange Program (MTEP) is to give small and medium sized local government agencies employee exchange opportunities so that participants can develop new experiences, competencies and relationships. The program is designed specifically to address the problem of preparing the next generation of senior managers in public agencies. It’s an excellent opportunity for employees to gain essential skills for maximum career potential.
Applicants for the program must submit a completed application, be recommended by their organization and be selected as a participant by the MTEP placement committee. Applications will be reviewed and matched with prospective exchange opportunities. The application consists of a current resume, supplemental questions, and a recommendation.
Resume and Supplemental Questions: These provide the basis for evaluation by describing the applicant’s background and career goals.
Supervisor, Department Head and City/County Manager (or Chief Executive) Recommendation: The Supervisor Recommendation ensures the applicant’s supervisor is aware and supportive of the applicant’s participation in the program. All signatures must be obtained prior to submission.
