The asphalt pavement industry is made up of asphalt plant managers, administrators, road crews, researchers, and an army of support personnel – all of whom play critical roles in building and maintaining the roads we use every day. Whether you are a high-school or college student, recent graduate, or mid-career professional, asphalt just may be the place where you will find your niche. Careers in the asphalt pavement industry are not limited to road work. Many civil engineers, technologists, and researchers with advanced degrees are necessary to ensure the quality and safety of our road system. Companies need white-collar staff including financial personnel, marketers, and many others.
