Do you like adventure? Travel? Documenting things on social media?

If that appeals to you, and you're qualified and interested, the Maine DOT would like you to apply for a job!

Imagine one day, you're on top of a new bridge being constructed, taking photos from a vantage point few will ever have the chance to occupy. And the next day, you're alongside a newly paved stretch of highway that was just completed, getting to take the first pictures of the freshly laid tar, before anyone else drives on it.

According to the Maine DOT Facebook Page, if that's something you'd like to do with your life, you might just have what it takes to be the newest member of their team.

"MaineDOT is seeking a Photographer/Videographer to join our Creative Services team in Augusta. Our ideal candidate would also have experience managing social media."

The job listing is available through MDOT's "Creative Services Department" and can be found, to review and even apply for, on the website. The add says says the right person will not only be able to take still photos, but also videos:

"This position is also responsible for providing various audio/visual services to the department including event audio/visual technical support and coverage, photography and video production, filming and editing, graphic design and desktop publishing, video and web conferencing setup and support, and electronic presentation support. These products and services are used for event signage and support, marketing and advertising collateral, project documentation, department internal and external publications and web presence, internal training products, and public relations purposes."

The right person will be in charge of helping to document projects and inform folks through social media, about what's happening with the DOT across the state.
