Pacific Gas and Electric Co. is inviting job seekers to an information fair Thursday, Oct. 26, to find out details regarding temporary job opportunities to support upcoming maintenance outage work at Diablo Canyon Power Plant.
The outage hiring information fair will be held in two sessions — from 2:30 to 4:30 and from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. — in the PG&E Energy Education Center, 6588 Ontario Road, at the San Luis Bay Drive exit south of San Luis Obispo.
Outage job seekers only need to attend one of the four sessions, PG&E spokesman Mark Mesesan said.
About every 18 months, one of Diablo Canyon’s two reactor units is shut down to be refueled.
During the planned outage, supplemental workers from the community and around the country assist the plant’s nearly 1,400 employees on projects that support the operation of the facility.
Temporary employee needs vary but typically include administrative, maintenance and mechanical positions, Mesesan said.
Representatives of PG&E contract partners and unions also will be on hand to discuss temporary outage jobs, he said.
To reach the Energy Education Center, take Highway 101 to the San Luis Bay Drive exit, then go about one block south on Ontario Road, which parallels the west side of the highway.
