The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Career Day is a workforce development tool designed to introduce high school students to careers in the transportation industry and support the pipeline that will provide the professionals of tomorrow.

To achieve this initiative, IDOT utilizes hands-on activities, exhibits and heavy equipment demonstrations to engage students and give them the opportunity to learn about several exciting transportation-related careers.

Career Day initiatives developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have proven highly successful in promoting the transportation industry and the careers it offers America’s youth. From past Career Day events, IDOT has proven that same success for Illinois students and industry members.
