FRESNO — If you’re looking for new employment or thinking of changing careers, please note: Caltrans is opening its doors in welcome for jobs opportunities with departments including planning, engineering, IT, office, maintenance and more.
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has announced a job fair for individuals interested in working for the state’s department of transportation.
The event is free and will take place on Thursday, June 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Manchester site located at 2015 E. Shields Ave #100 in Fresno.
Attendees will be informed of various employment opportunities that exist within Caltrans, such as engineers, planners, surveyors, information technology, office assistants, equipment operators and maintenance workers.
Representatives from each division will be in attendance to answer questions and provide guidance.
College students looking for part-time work will be interested in hearing about the student assistant program; a volunteer coordinator will also be present at the event.
Caltrans District 6 Director Sharri Bender Ehlert says the catalyst for the job fair is a high attrition rate over the past five years and an expected uptick of workload, thanks to the passing of Senate Bill 1 (SB1).
“The funds provided by SB1 will allow us to not only expedite projects that are on the horizon, but also lets us catch up on our state highway’s deferred maintenance needs,” states Bender Ehlert.
Human resources will also be on-hand to explain the hiring process, conduct career counseling and give demonstrations on how to start a profile and apply for jobs via the state’s job website www.caljobs.ca.gov.
