AMES, Iowa – Feb. 27, 2013 – The Iowa Department of Transportation is thinking of spring and summer as the agency ramps up its recruiting of paid interns for the upcoming construction season.
The Iowa DOT is looking to hire 70 engineering interns at locations around the state, as well as 12 summer positions in other focus areas. Starting pay for these positions is $14.05 per hour. Applicants need to act quickly as the deadline to apply is close of business Friday, March 1. To apply, go to http://www.iowadot.gov/coopsandinternships/index.html.
To qualify, applicants must be full-time students at a college or university. Interviews for prospective students will be held March 11-15. If selected, each hiring office will contact the applicant to schedule an interview. Successful candidates will be notified the week of March 18. Start dates (depending on school schedules) will be May 13 or May 20, and would conclude the Friday prior to the beginning of the fall semester.
In addition to the short-term internship positions, the Iowa DOT is also looking for two students to fill available co-op positions. The work commitment for these positions will be May to December, with one position in the Creston/Atlantic area and the other in the Iowa DOT’s Office of Design in Ames. The application process and hiring timelines are the same for these two positions as for the internships.
