DOT seeks motivated individual to lead powerful juggernaut, change the world

Posted By on Tue, Sep 18, 2007 at 7:51 PM

Are you a recent college graduate who feels listless and doesn't know what to do with your life? Well, good news. The state Department of Transportation is accepting applicants for the soon-to-be vacant commissioner position until 5 p.m., Sept. 24. Harold Linnenkohl, the current commissioner, will step down Nov. 30 after four years in charge of the agency.

In your powerful position you'll oversee 5,800 employees and manage more than $2 billion. And face political scrutiny along with the ire of motorists, builders, columnists, bloggers, deer and pretty much everyone. You've already got some competition — state Rep. Vance Smith (R-Pine Mountain) and Georgia Building Authority head Gena Abraham are rumored to be in contention — but give it a shot.

As usual, submit a letter of interest, credentials and CV. Interviews will be conducted Sept. 26 and Oct. 3. Included among those who will grill you: David Doss, Dana Lemon, Bill Kuhlke, Garland Pinholster and Mike Evans, the state's transportation board chairman.
