On-The-Job Training Program

HAVE YOU EVER DREAMED OF:

  • Working outside in a physically demanding job all summer?

  • Being a heavy equipment operator?

  • Driving a dump truck? Building a bridge?

IF SO, WE MAY HAVE THE PERFECT JOB OPPORTUNITY!

We are always looking for Women and Minorities who want to work hard, get dirty, and be outside! Every spring and summer we place trainees on highway construction projects all over the state. See our flyer and the OJT Program Manual for more information.

Look at our List of OJT Projects to see the projects and positions we had this year. If you are looking ahead to next season, please check out the 2018 project list!

If you are interested, complete an application and return it to Beth Meyer-Ehrich by email, mail or fax. 

Once we receive your completed application, we will:

  • Work closely with you to decide if this is the right industry for you;

  • If it is, we will find a good match of your skills and interests to the needs of our paving, bridge, and roadway projects; and

  • Refer you to a highway construction firm for a job interview.

If you become an OJT, we will provide:

  • Ongoing support while you're on the job; and

  • Personal protective equipment like steel-toed boots and reflective clothing (if needed).
