State Agencies Plan Virtual Open House for IT Jobs

Recruiters from multiple state entities will participate in the event, which will include various breakout sessions offering information about the state hiring process and “day-to-day insight” on IT careers.

Three key departments in state government are planning a virtual employment open house specifically for technologists who may be interested in working for the state.

The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA), the Office of Data and Innovation (ODI) and the California Department of Technology (CDT) are presenting the virtual open house from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 15. The event is open to the public.

“Learn about job opportunities, upward mobility & more to help you find your path to excellence,” CDT says in a LinkedIn announcement of the event.

The post touts the advantages of working for state government, including “great benefits,” good work/life balance, career development, job security and telework opportunities.

Recruiters from multiple state departments will participate in the event, which will include various breakout sessions offering information about benefits offered to state employees; the state hiring process; and “day-to-day insight” on IT careers, including positions classified as Career Executive Assignments.

Job classifications to be covered in the webinar include IT Associate; IT Specialist I, II and III; and IT Manager. Areas of focus include cloud computing, cybersecurity and data engineering.

“The mission of the CDTFA is to make life better for Californians by fairly and efficiently collecting the revenue that supports our essential public services,” the department says. ODI’s mission is to “deliver better services to Californians through data, human-centered design, and technology.” And CDT’s charge is “securing statewide information assets by providing oversight and infrastructure for many state departments” and serving “as the custodian of information for mission-critical and essential business applications.”

Attendance is free, and registration and more information are available online.
