ALUMNI HIGHLIGHT

Amanda DeCesare
Project Manager- Public Projects,
CSX Transportation

GRAD

"I began working for CSX Transportation in July of 2007 in the Design and Construction Department as a Management Trainee.

From 2008 to 2012, I lived in Richmond, VA working as a Construction Engineer for CSX. In 2012, I took on my current role as Project Manager of Public Projects. My territory covers 5 states, including the best state in the country, Michigan! I work with the state DOTs and other local agencies to develop plans and construction agreements for various public agency projects that impact CSX, and I get to work with a wide variety of different people with a many types of projects every day.

I encourage anyone looking for “something different” to look into a railroad career. It is a thriving industry, and many opportunities exist in all different career paths all around the
country." Read Amanda's entire sharing in the RTP Annual Report.
