Employment Opportunities

The Commission offers careers in many disciplines such as public land management, environmental science, engineering, resource management, legal and boundary. We are proud of our commitment to provide a fulfilling work environment with professional development opportunities. The Commission also offers internships that further the educational objectives of students in undergraduate or graduate programs in fields related to the work of the Commission. If you are interested in employment at the Commission or in an internship, please call our personnel office at (916) 574-1910.

If you are new to employment with the State of California, obtaining a job at the Commission will involve two steps: taking a civil service exam for the position of interest, and participating in the Department's hiring process for the position. If you already work for the State, you may not need to take the civil service exam (check with your human resources office). For this and all other state exams and job opportunities please visit CalCareers.
