One of state government’s largest agencies is holding a recruitment “Open House” with an emphasis on those working in information technology.

Sept. 28 is the date for the department-wide career fair, which is being presented by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

“This event focuses on careers within information technology,” said Richard Gillespie, CDCR’s deputy director for IT Operations and Support. “Specifically, two classifications, the Information Technology Associate and Information Technology Specialist I, have multiple vacancies within the Sacramento region. CDCR will be offering same-day testing and interviewing for jobs in the areas of applications development, network services, and desktop support services.”

The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at CDCR’s Enterprise Information Services’ Birkmont Campus, 1940 Birkmont Drive, Rancho Cordova. Those who attend will have an opportunity to learn about jobs and benefits and to talk with CDCR employees about what it’s like to work for the department.

Attendees are advised to bring their school transcripts. For those meeting minimum qualifications and passing an examination, interviews may be offered at the event.

Openings are available in more than a dozen CDCR institutions and programs. More information and a registration link are available online.
