SDG&E Brings Back Instagram Recruitment Chats and Debuts Inaugural Virtual Diversity Career Fair to Support Local Economic Recovery
San Diego CA—As part of its ongoing efforts to support the region’s economic recovery, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) will launch a campaign starting Sept. 9 to publicize job openings and recruit local candidates via Instagram chats and a virtual job fair on Microsoft Teams. Registration is not required to participate in these events.
With so many people still sheltering at home due to the pandemic, SDG&E has quickly adapted to alternative ways of reaching those who are seeking employment.
Instagram Recruitment Chats
SDG&E held its inaugural Instagram recruitment chats last year, which generated more than 750 job applications. The chats, which are being brought back due to popular demand, will take place on SDG&E’s Instagram channel (@sdge). Each chat will feature a human resources representative specializing in particular areas of recruitment. They will also offer interview and resumé tips. Here is the schedule of upcoming chats:
- Chat #1: Sept. 9 with Kelly Wirth – Learn how to apply for laborer/line assistant positions
- Chat #2: Sept. 16 with Bryanna Walker – Learn about professional careers & company benefits
- Chat #3: Sept. 23 with Chrissy Conde – Learn about our Energy Services Specialist position and how to apply
