Norfolk Southern is One of the Best Places to Launch a Career

Norfolk, VA - Sep 12, 2008

Norfolk Southern is one of the 50 “Best Places to Launch a Career,” according to the Sept. 15, 2008, issue of BusinessWeek magazine.

BusinessWeek’s annual list is based on a survey of U.S. employers, college career services directors, and some 40,000 college undergraduates. Norfolk Southern’s place on the list improved from last year, and the magazine noted, “High oil prices wreaked havoc on everything from air carriers to freight delivery companies. The one beneficiary: rail.”

“Railroading today is a growth industry,” said Cindy Earhart, NS vice president human resources. “With our focus on safety and service, our light impact on the environment, and our efforts to build an inclusive workplace, we offer attractive career options with competitive compensation and benefits.”

Norfolk Southern Corporation (NYSE: NSC) is one of the nation’s premier transportation companies. Its Norfolk Southern Railway subsidiary operates approximately 21,000 route miles in 22 states and the District of Columbia, serving every major container port in the eastern United States and providing superior connections to western rail carriers. Norfolk Southern operates the most extensive intermodal network in the East and is North America’s largest rail carrier of metals and automotive products.
