Increasing her skills, Jill Milton receives Certificate of Achievement from Villanova

By Grayson Cason - Exec Dir of Admin Services - Lake City

In Lake City, the continuing education of city workers represents an investment in the city. Lake City has an ongoing education policy throughout all its departments and is constantly doing things to educate staff in their own areas. An educated city staff is professional and efficient and enables the city to deliver a higher level of service to its residents.

Jill Milton was previously employed by ClientLogic as Human Resource Information System Administrator. She began her career with the City of Lake City in February 2008, in the Finance Department as an Accounting Clerk. Her Finance Department responsibilities included payroll maintenance, accounts payable and account receivable. Ms. Milton transferred to the Human Resource Department on June 14, 2010 as a Human Resource Technician.

Ms. Milton received a Certificate of Achievement in Human Resources Management on January 10, 2011 from Villanova University. This twelve week course included weekly virtual internet classes held in real-time. Human Resources Management consists of Strategic Management, Workforce Planning and Employment, HR Development, Compensation, Employee and Labor Relations and Risk Management.

While the course was 12 weeks and 40 hours, Ms. Milton spent at least 100 hours doing course and study work on her own time.

The Human Resource Management Certification is a stepping stone to obtaining a Professional in Human Resources Certification and gives Ms. Milton an additional learning resource thru The Society for Human Resource Management.
