The company is hosting a job fair Thursday in anticipation of the Unit 2 refueling and maintenance shutdown. Various positions are available requiring administrative, maintenance or mechanical skills, said Tom Cuddy, PG&E spokesman.
The refueling is scheduled for late spring, and workers will be needed for four to six weeks, said Cuddy.
Information about full-time employment with PG&E and several of their business partners will also be available at the fair.

“We’re always looking to hire full-time employees, and this is a great opportunity,” said Cuddy.
Thursday’s hiring fair will have two sessions — 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. They will be held at the PG&E Energy Education Center at 6588 Ontario Road in San Luis Obispo.
Each of Diablo Canyon’s two nuclear reactors is shut down for refueling every 18 to 20 months. PG&E hires supplemental workers during the planned outages to assist Diablo Canyon employees.
PG&E employs about 2,000 people in San Luis Obispo County, about 1,500 of whom work at the Diablo Canyon plant, Cuddy said.
