ANAHEIM, Calif., May 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Securitas goes high tech as it aims to bolster its workforce by 1,200 officers in California by hosting an online virtual career fair and drive-thru hiring events. Securitas is hiring 10,000 positions nationwide and more than 10 percent of those jobs are in California.
Last month, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California is experiencing a "pandemic induced recession" in which hundreds of thousands of workers were laid off.

With stay at home orders persisting across the state, Securitas has gone completely high tech for its hiring process and its training of new hires.
The Securitas Virtual Career Fair will be held on Thursday, May 21 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm via virtual interview.
Each California Securitas office is participating with a focus on the following cities and surrounding areas: Anaheim, Bakersfield, Carlsbad, Chino, Commerce, Concord, El Centro, Fresno, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Monterey, Mountain View, Northridge, Oakland, Ontario, Orange County, Palm Desert, Pasadena, Petaluma, Redding, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Maria, San Mateo, Stockton, Temecula, Torrance, Victorville, Ventura, and West Covina.
