Welcome to Career Development!
VDOT wants employees to think about their relationship with the department as a career rather than a job. We need a strong workforce that can address transportation challenges today and tomorrow. Career development helps employees see opportunities for the future in a structured way. We want employees to move sideways and up in the organization, and develop skills to compete for other positions.
VDOT leaders challenge our employees to constantly grow and develop. Career development supports our efforts to fill the VDOT talent pipeline, especially in key areas of our business.
Coaching is a critical component of career development at VDOT. Career coaches help employees review their skills, cultivate interests and passions, and grow in their current role as well as prepare for future roles.
Below are some key positions at VDOT, the skills needed to fill them and ways you can best prepare to carry out the duties involved. If this looks interesting and you would like to further discuss your development at VDOT, contact a career coach (likely your district training manager) and make an appointment to take charge of your future.
