We’re hosting a job fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 13, at the West Los Angeles Veterans Home, located at 11500 Nimitz Avenue (Wilshire and the 405), Los Angeles, Calif.

The job fair will also offer workshops on “How to Get a State Job” and “How to Maneuver the CalHR Website.”

Nurses 2We’ve streamlined the process to make quick hiring decisions and to make job offers on the spot. Participants can complete the necessary exam, go through a hiring interview and complete livescan (finger print) process all in one day. This is a process that normally takes over three months.

If you plan to attend the job fair, you can save yourself time by creating a CalCareer Account before you arrive. If possible, take the exam for the job you would like to apply for. Please bring information on three positive job references, including phone numbers.
