About Our Programs

One third of MnDOT’s technical workforce will be eligible to retire by 2016. At the same time, the demographics of the State of Minnesota are changing.


To maintain a competitive edge as an ‘employer of choice’ and accurately represent the diverse citizens we serve, MnDOT seeks a younger generation of diverse, talented and qualified workers through our student worker and internship programs.


MnDOT has designed these programs in an effort to equip and train you for potential permanent placement within our organization upon graduation.

Student Worker and Student Internship Programs

As a leader in the transportation industry, MnDOT looks for dynamic employees from all walks of life. Our student programs provide job opportunities for both high school and college students.

Great opportunities

Day-to-day opportunities include participating in meetings and training classes, as well as networking with industry professionals in your chosen field of study.

College students
If you're a college-level minority or economically disadvantaged student, a student who is a recently separated veteran or a student with a disability who is interested in a student worker career track program, check out our Seeds Program.

High School students

High School students taking Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics courses at a Project Lead the Way high school may qualify for a student job or paid internship opportunity through MnDOT's Phoenix Program.
