For how long will they suspend my licence
On first offence.
For your first offence, there is a mandatory license suspension of one year, followed by an ignition interlock. There is also a minimum $1,000 fine. If you complete an educational course (on drunk driving) then you may be able to reduce the suspension time to allow you to drive before the 12 months driving prohibition has expired, albeit with the interlock device installed in the vehicle.
Hopefully that answers your questions.

Is there any chance i can get my licence back since i want it for work
Unfortunately you cannot get your license back before the minimum prohibition time has expired, even if you require it for work. For policy reasons, the state treats drunk driving offences very seriously and allows for minimal discretion in sentencing, with several mandatory punitive measures such as the fine, prohibition and ignition interlock.
Hopefully that is of assistance
