As the capital of the most populous state in the union, there are usually 100,000 state jobs in the greater Sacramento area. They are some of the most secure jobs one can hope to find in today’s unstable global economy. Once hired one can have a long career with the state by moving up the ladder with promotional opportunities. The question is not “why should I try for a state job?” but rather, “why are you not trying for a state job?” This is the class that demystifies the process of state hiring. It covers the exams and their qualifications, how/where to take them, where to find the jobs that go with them, and the interview process.
