Breitbart News is reporting that students and job seekers in California are being encouraged to apply to “a new program” in which they can receive an online job in order to qualify for a “pre-employment payment.”
The program, known as the California Jobs and Prosperity Job Match, will provide a “job guarantee,” and the guarantee “includes the possibility for students and others to apply for jobs in California through the program, which will be launched as soon as a suitable employer comes forward,” according to the program’s website.
California Job Match offers a variety of employment opportunities, including in-person positions, remote employment, online, on-site, or through the application process.
According to the website, students who submit an online application will receive an application fee and the opportunity to apply online.
Students who apply on-campus can also be given an opportunity to work on a project, work remotely, and earn a stipend for their effort.
Those who do not meet the employment requirements will be referred to a “re-training” program, the website says.
The program is currently in its second year, and has been in place for several months.
The program is open to all applicants in the state of California, and will begin in April and will last until October.
According the California Job Match website, applicants are required to:Have a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in a related field such as Business Administration, Psychology, or Economics.
Work for the company that has a job posting or has recently started an online posting, or be currently employed in a job in a company that is listed on the program website.
Be able to show proof of completion of at least 12 credits from the California State University system, including a college degree, with a GPA of 3.5 or higher, a GPA at least 3.3, or a cumulative GPA of 2.6 or higher.
If you meet all of the above requirements, you can apply online through the Jobs and Professions website, or you can fill out a short online application using either Adobe Reader or a mobile app.
Students are required also to:Be enrolled at a UC Davis campus or accredited community college.
Be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.
Apply for the program through a California State employee referral program.
Apply to at least two jobs within the first three months of employment.
The website for the California job matching program states that students will receive “a pre-employment financial guarantee” if they are not “prepared for the job.”
A spokesperson for the Department of Labor told Breitbart News that the Department has “no information to indicate that the pre-employee payment program is now operational or that it will be offered in the future.”
