If you are looking for a great job making a difference in the lives of our Veterans, then the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) is looking for you! In preparation for the immediate opening of our new Skilled Nursing Unit at our CalVet West Los Angeles Veterans Home, CalVet will be holding a CalVet Job Fair on January 21, 2015.

CalVet seeks applicants for the following positions:
• 27 Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs)
• 11 Nurses
• Activities coordinator
• Social worker
• Nursing supervisor
• Plus clerical, food service, custodial, and numerous other clinical positions.

“We’re looking for compassionate individuals who care about our Veterans,” said Tom Bucci, the Administrator of our CalVet West Los Angeles Veterans Home. “Our goal is filling our beds in our Home as soon as we hire the professional and caring staff we need.”

On January 21, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., visit our CalVet Job Fair at our West LA Home, 11500 Nimitz Avenue, Los Angeles. Applicants will receive a one-stop opportunity to speak with CalVet Human Resources staff about how to get a state job and to take the exams necessary to establish application eligibility—a necessary step in state service employment.

CalVet continues hiring statewide.

“We have job openings throughout our eight long-term care homes, said Diane Vanderpot, Undersecretary Veterans Home of California. “We are particularly in need of nurses, therapists, and other clinical staff. In the coming months you will see CalVet staff attending community job fairs and Veterans resource fairs recruiting for our homes.”

In addition to West LA, CalVet operates Veterans Homes in Barstow, Chula Vista, Fresno, Lancaster, Redding, Ventura, and Yountville. All homes are looking to hire staff. To learn more about CalVet exams and jobs, please visit our award-winning new website:

Veterans’ preference can be applied to help Veteran’s qualify for open as well as open, non-promotional examinations. Any Veteran, Veteran spouse, widow or widower, or spouse of a 100-percent disabled Veteran who achieves a passing score on an entrance examination will be eligible to apply for employment within that job classification.
