2022 Department of Finance Recruiting Conference (DOFCON)
Message from the Director
On behalf of the California Department of Finance, thank you for your interest in attending our 7th Annual Policy and Recruitment Conference (DOFCON). Our policy conference is a unique opportunity for job-seeking participants to interact with Finance leaders and policy experts. We will discuss our role in California’s government, economy, and demographics, the state’s legislative and budget processes, independent audits and evaluations, and current issues in state policy. We will also have a Q&A panel from representatives of our various units to describe what it is like to work at Finance and discuss careers and internships opportunities at Finance.
The live-streamed conference is on Friday, October 13th, 2023 from 9:30 A.M. to 12:15 P.M., but there is also an option to attend in person. The in-person event will be followed by a meet and greet with employees. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
— Joe Stephenshaw, Director of the California Department of Finance
