PHOENIX -- The Arizona Department of Transportation has announced a new partnership that will allow them to help U.S. Army veterans find work after they complete their service.

ADOT and the Army Partnership for Youth Success have teamed up to help veterans find employment with ADOT following their careers in the military.

“We are proud and honored to join the PaYS program,” said ADOT Director John Halikowski. “This is a great way for us as an agency to help those men and women, who volunteered to serve our country and protect our freedoms, find a career that will match their skill set."

ADOT offers careers in a variety of fields including accounting, engineering, law enforcement and computer programming.

“The program will provide ADOT highly qualified applicants and give Arizonans an added incentive to serve their country and bring their training and experience back to Phoenix after their Army enlistment,” said Lt. Col. Jennifer McAffee, commander of the Phoenix Battalion.

The Department of Public Safety was the first state agency to join the PaYS program.
