Caltrans is hiring, looking to fill more than 1,100 open positions, and is hosting career fairs statewide to attract potential employees.
With the passage of Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act, which is projected to raise a total of $54 billion in the upcoming decade, and even more after that, Caltrans is expecting a workload increase associated with accelerating construction projects and addressing deferred maintenance needs.
Caltrans is looking to fill open positions in maintenance, human resources, legal, engineering, information technology, equipment, and transportation and environmental planning. A list of upcoming Career Fairs is available at http://www.dot.ca.gov/jobs/docs/2017-2018_Recruitment_Events.pdf and types of available jobs and examinations can be found at http://www.dot.ca.gov/jobs/vacancy.html.
A Stockton event is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 21. The Caltrans Career Fair for District 10 will be hosted from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday at 2101 E. Earhart Ave., Suite 100 in Stockton.
Positions exist statewide in many areas including engineering, maintenance, information technology, accounting, legal, surveys, planning, human resources, environmental and more.
