SACRAMENTO (CBSLA.com) — If you’re looking for a job, it’s time to send your resume over to Caltrans.
They reportedly have over 1,100 openings that include blue- and white-careers and they’re actively recruiting and colleges, universities, and job fairs to help get the word out.
The Fresno Bee reports that two main trends are driving the hiring spree: the age of Caltrans’ workforce — workers tend to be somewhat older than employees in other state departments — and a bigger workload. The state’s 12-cent gas tax increase is expected to an additional $52 billion in transportation projects over the next decade, funding a bunch of new transportation projects.
While jobs are opening up all over the state, the highest concentrations of openings are reportedly near Los Angeles, Fresno, Marysville, and Oakland.
