2. Contact the company directly

A good way to find a job in California is to send your resume to one of the large local corporations, for example, Ford Motor, Hewlett-Packard, Chevron, Procter & Gamble, J P Morgan Chase & Co.

It is worth paying attention to large companies because they constantly need specialists.

3. Local newspapers

Don’t neglect periodicals to find a job. Pay attention to the largest newspapers. Good options for searches are:

  • Los Angeles Times
  • The Mercury News
  • San Francisco Chronicle
  • San Francisco Examiner
  • The San Diego Union-Tribune
  • Sacramento Bee
  • Orange County Register
  • Fresno Bee

4. Recruiting company

There are hundreds of recruiting companies in the US for Clifornia state job search. For a certain fee, they will help you quickly find a suitable job in California. When choosing one of them, be sure to check for a license to carry out such activities and do not forget to read the agreement that is concluded with you.

Choose a company that takes payment for the services rendered after the fact. If the recruiting agency turns out to be a scammer, you have the right to file a complaint with the State Consumer Protection Office.

5. Search in place

This is a laborious but effective way. Monitor ads in shopping malls, catering establishments, salons and hotels. If the company does not have a corresponding board, contact the administrator or manager. If you are interested, you will be given the manager’s phone number and an appointment date for the interview.

6. Internship

You can start internships only in organizations officially registered in the country. Two categories of people can participate in these programs:

  • Students aged 18-25 who have completed at least 2 courses of study.
  • University graduates aged 20-32.

The main advantages of such work are experience and the acquisition of professional skills. At the end of your internship, your employer may give you a letter of recommendation.

You can search for a suitable company or program on your own, or choose a sponsoring organization on the State Department’s website that will help you find a good deal for a fee. Next, you fill out a questionnaire, which is considered within a month. They select a suitable program for you and send an invitation.
