Determining Guidelines for Development of an Internship Program for Wage Grade Employees within the Phoenix Air Guard. Governance and Management.
Torbert, James Brison
A study examined development programs, uncovered during a literature review, that would assist in the supervisory training of Wage Grade employees who are promoted to working supervisors. The examination determined guidelines that could be used to construct a supervisory internship program within the Phoenix Air Guard. Hall's experience-based career development model (1986) was found to contain guidelines for establishing a career development program that could be used as the framework for the construction of an internship program. Other conclusions were that the internship program must have an orientation phase, the Phoenix Air Guard's management must go through the steps in work force planning to make the program effective, all candidates should be volunteers, and the program should incorporate aspects of all three career development programs. Recommendations included management's identification of (1) key organizational positions or families of positions to serve as career targets, (2) desired job behaviors for key positions, and (3) specific supervisory positions to be incorporated into the internship program.
