Department of Transportation

Current Openings & Application Process


The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) hires most employees through the New Jersey Merit System examination and selection process. Current openings along with titles for which NJDOT will accept applications to create a resume bank and instructions on how to apply are provided on this web site.

NJDOT is an equal employment opportunity employer and encourages and supports diversity in the workplace. We encourage all candidates to apply, and do not discriminate (please reference the State Policy prohibiting discrimination in the workplace N.J.A.C. 4A:7-3.1). All employees and applicants for employment have the right and are encouraged to immediately report suspected violations of the State Policy. (Equal Employment Opportunity Discrimination Complaint Form)

In accordance with N.J.S.A. 52:14-7 (L.2011, Chapter 70), also known as the "New Jersey First Act", which became effective September 1, 2011, all persons newly hired by the State on or after that date must reside in the State of New Jersey unless exempted under the law. If you do not reside in New Jersey, you have one year after you begin employment to relocate your principal residence to New Jersey.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibits employers from discriminating against any qualified person on the basis of disability. The State of New Jersey makes reasonable accommodations during all aspects of the employment process, such as testing and interviews. The State also makes reasonable accommodations in the work environment to enable a person with a disability to perform the essential job functions and to participate equally with coworkers without disabilities. However, the State can only make reasonable accommodations when it is aware of a disability. It is up to you to inform us if you need a reasonable accommodation. You may be required to submit documentation to support your request. Please inform us if you need a reasonable accommodation before the interview process.
