SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Gas & Electric officials announced a

campaign today to publicize job openings and recruit as many local candidates

as possible to support the region's ongoing economic recovery from the COVID-19

pandemic.

SDG&E has continued hiring new employees amid the pandemic, not just

to fill positions that have opened up due to attrition, but also because the

company and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 465

adopted a joint plan earlier this year for new multi-year hiring, training and

apprenticeship programs.

These programs are designed to help develop a highly specialized and

skilled workforce to complete critical infrastructure projects needed to

enhance wildfire safety, upgrade natural gas pipelines and expand the

electrical vehicle charging infrastructure needed for zero emission

transportation, officials said.

The latest job openings are posted at sdge.com/careers.

The recruitment awareness campaign will begin on Monday with the first

of a series of chats with company recruiters on SDG&E's Instagram channel.

Chats will occur through the end of the month, with each session featuring a

human resources representative specializing in particular areas of recruitment.

The HR representatives will also offer interview and resume tips.

The recruiting chats will occur Monday at noon for entry-level gas and

electric workers, June 22 for call center representatives, June 25 for

careers in the energy field and June 29 for a college recruiting team chat.

In addition to social media outreach, SDG&E will be reaching out to

community-based organizations to help publicize its openings. The utility is

also working with local community leaders and elected officials to amplify

awareness of these opportunities.

Over the next three years, SDG&E plans to hire nearly 150 entry-level

positions, while investing in six line apprenticeship classes, six line

assistant classes, three electrician assistant classes and specialized training

for welding and other high-skilled trades. Officials said the plan would result

in the hiring or significant ``upskilling'' of 400 to 500 positions.
