California Revamps Its Career Site and We’re Lovin’ It
State worker hopefuls, take note. There are nearly 4,000 open positions being advertised by California state government and a newly-revamped website called CalCareers aims to help you find them.
The Human Resources Department redesigned its website once before. But it soon received complaints that it wasn’t mobile phone-friendly enough. That’s all changed, HR officials boast. Now, you can browse jobs and apply for them from your cell.
“This is the first time on one our state jobs that they took feedback and responded,” said Greg Kiefer, president of Kiefer Consulting, which partnered with Cal HR on the website overhaul.
The site offers something for everyone. For those who have never worked for the state, there’s a great how-to guide available. But the site can also help existing state workers looking to move up the ranks. One option allows current state workers to find opportunities for promotions. Even retired people looking for part-time work have their own routes on the site.
