Student Outreach Opportunities

Career Day

Career Day is a workforce development tool designed to introduce high school students to careers in the transportation industry. Through hands-on activities, exhibits and heavy equipment demonstrations, local middle and high school students get the opportunity to learn about several exciting transportation related careers.

The Illinois Department of Transportation held two Career Day events in Peoria and Chicago on October 3rd and 18th. The two events attracted approximately 400 students and over 70 vendors. Using hands-on activities, exhibits and heavy equipment demonstrations, students were able to experience possible career paths in transportation at IDOT.

Thanks to the dedication and commitment of community partners, volunteers and staff, these events were a success in promoting awareness and education of transportation careers among Illinois youth.
