The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is hosting a Maintenance Career Fair in Bakersfield on Tuesday, September 26 and invites the public to attend and learn about jobs that are available within the department.


With the passage of Senate Bill 1 (the Road Repair and Accountability Act), which is projected to raise a total of $54 billion through 2027, Caltrans is expecting a workload increase associated with accelerating construction projects and addressing deferred maintenance needs.


This free event will include career informational booths, hiring process assistance as well as information about current local job openings. Representatives from careers in maintenance will be on-hand including Electricians, Heavy Equipment Operators, Highway Maintenance, Tree Maintenance, Landscaping and more. Computers will also be available for applicants to submit information online.
