Applicants do not have to attend an in-person event to apply. For applicants who plan on attending an event, we highly suggest applying before the event and reserving a scheduled time in order to avoid a long wait. Our goal with these events is to answer questions and match local candidates with local positions in California.

Applicants may still attend the event as walk-ins. However, we cannot guarantee a walk-in applicant will make it through the application and job offer process during the scheduled event.
