Call to ACTION to transportation professionals across the country to provide students with an introduction to transportation careers through jobs, internships, mentoring and/or career exploration activities over the summer and months to follow.
Over the next ten years, over fifty percent of the transportation workforce will be eligible for retirement. It is critical that the United States develop a skilled and diverse transportation workforce across a broad range of both professional and skilled transportation careers: engineers, planners, construction workers, welders, truck drivers, pilots and others. And, semi-skilled and skilled jobs in operations, maintenance and construction are in great demand today. Transportation jobs pay well, and most transportation jobs include strong benefits in addition to good wages.
Secretary Foxx invites YOU to introduce at least one student to transportation careers.
