(WBNG) -- The New York State Department of Transportation announced that applications are currently being accepted for approximately 57 full-time positions.
The DOT is teaming up with the Department of Labor to host virtual job fairs to help recruit qualified workers.
Contrary to other workforces, the Department of Transportation did not see a slowdown in work during the pandemic or the winter storm.
Regional Public Information Specialist Scott Cook said that the pandemic and weather only showed the strength of the department and their commitment to safety.
"I think that the December giant snow followed by rain shows that DOT is at the ready at all times and gets to work and gets the roads back to safe conditions," he said.
Qualified candidates interested in learning more about the available positions and how to apply can visit the NYSDOT website.
