“When I first applied to the agency, I had no idea what they did until I conducted some research. NCTCOG is a voluntary organization of local governments covering the DFW Metroplex. The agency values your education and is highly accommodating with your school schedule. My mentor and Program Manager (Supervisor) were always willing to provide me advice on personal growth, future career aspirations, and pursuing higher education. This is really great position for Business Majors!”
