About Careers in Motion

The future competitiveness of the United States depends on having a workforce with strong capabilities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. As America faces the challenge of updating and repairing its aging infrastructure, policy makers and employers need to create a pipeline of hundreds of thousands of jobs in the transportation sector and in transportation-related projects—especially in the wake of a largely retiring workforce. It is in support of this critical need that TRB announces the launch of the Careers in Motion Networking Fair.

The Fair will be held in part to support the transportation community’s efforts to build awareness of and expand the transportation workforce. It will be held during the 2018 TRB Annual Meeting and will provide an opportunity for prospective employers from a wide range of sectors and modes to meet with transportation professionals interested in working for their organizations. Event attendees will be registrants who span career levels from seasoned executives to recent graduates. Hiring managers will be onsite and ready to offer career information and advice.

The Networking Fair is just part of TRB’s “Careers in Motion” initiative, which supports the mission of TRB’s new Diversity and Inclusion Task Force—to facilitate making diverse and inclusive involvement a core value for TRB staff, volunteers, contract awardees, projects, and the transportation communities that TRB serves.

Put your organization in front of thousands of engineers, policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions by reserving your table today! In addition to having a dedicated table with room for signage, employers will be included in the Annual Meeting App and onsite marketing materials, and will have access to the Networking Zone, where they can sit with attendees at roundtables to discuss opportunities further.
