Tribal Professional Development

The Tribal Professional Development Program facilitates employment opportunities in an effort to enhance employability skills and encourage the professional development of Seminole Tribal members through various programs. 



We want to congratulate Ms. Katherine Billie for her achievement in successfully completing the Work Experience Program!  Katherine has been a part of WEP for over a year and was recently hired as a full time employee by the Big Cypress Housing Department. Recently Katherine answered a few questions to reflect on her experience with the program.

  • Were your initial objectives for joining WEP met?
    • Yes, when I decided to apply for a job I was thankful for having WEP to join first. I wasn’t sure if the position I received would really interest me or even if I would continue in the workforce. 

  • What aspects of your job were the most satisfying?
    • Being able to greet the members and assisting them with their housing needs.

  • What was your overall experience with WEP?
  • I think WEP is very beneficial. It gives members the opportunity to attain a job depending on what their goals are or how they want to contribute to the community. I also enjoyed the online trainings provided through WEP, they were very helpful.I would like to thank the Tribal Professional Development Work Experience Program for assisting me with a position that promoted me to a full-time position.
