job application

We all know the transportation construction industry was hit pretty hard with the economic downturn.

The industry is still slowly recovering, and many in the industry are still feeling the effects from it. So I was quite happy when I saw the news in my email inbox that the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is looking for “dozens of good workers” (as the message was titled) for full-time positions across the entire Northwest Indiana District. INDOT Northwest is looking to fill at least 35 full time positions located across the 13-county district.
