As you browse through the calendar, you'll see that there is always something available. When you're interested in a particular trade or skill set, you'll be able to see what classes are offered in your area. Depending on when you're interested, you might not even need to enroll in an educational course to start. Jobs are listed under appropriate categories. Once you've determined what skills you need and where you want to gain experience, you can begin to search the calendar for job openings.
There are numerous ways to search for a job in Cal Jobs. You can use the convenient search tool available at the top of the page.

If you're willing to travel out of the city to find a position, you can also find out about job fairs held yearly, monthly, quarterly, or annually.

Training is available for most jobs at Cal Jobs. If you're currently not in a position to obtain certification, you can still obtain necessary skills to perform the job duties of the job vacancy.
