Information about Bakersfield:
Bakersfield has long been known as a stopover for those traveling between Los Angeles and San Francisco. But people who consider putting down roots in the area will find a healthy job market and an affordable place to raise a family. In fact, it's Bakersfield's strong sense of community and family and its booming oil and agriculture industries that keep the region thriving.
In some ways, Bakersfield feels like Texas: Oil rigs dot the horizon, and honky-tonks are easy to come by. But the metro area's location in the fertile San Joaquin Valley has instilled in residents the love of fresh, locally sourced foods, which is at the heart of California culture.
Bakersfield has hundreds of miles of bike paths and lanes and nearly 60 parks, offering locals plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Plus, residents are a short drive from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and some of California's expansive national forests.
Bakersfield is more affordable than most other parts of California. Purchasing a home in Bakersfield will cost nearly three times less than in Los Angeles. Additionally, Bakersfield residents spend more than the average American on everyday expenses like food, utilities and transportation, but that amount pales in comparison to what Los Angeles residents spend. As a result, some of L.A. County's workforce opts to live in the Bakersfield area. Bakersfield is home to a multigenerational, multicultural population. Diversity can be seen throughout the region from the wide variety of small mom-and-pop restaurants and shops selling international foods and goods. The metro area is known for its Basque restaurants, which have remained in the area long after people from the Pyrenees region of France and Spain first came to Bakersfield in search of gold.
Much of Bakersfield's population is of working age, with about 10 percent of residents older than 65 and roughly a third of the population younger than 20. Because of high-performing schools, neighborhoods in the northwest part of the metro area are particularly attractive to families.
Bakersfield residents find plenty of ways to enjoy the region's pleasant weather, from parks within the city limits to trails in the nearby Sequoia and Los Padres national forests.
Although major league sports don't have a presence in the area, hometown fans cheer on their minor league favorite, the Bakersfield Condors hockey team. Racing fans can take their pick of asphalt, dirt, autocross or drag racing at nearby tracks.
If museums are more your scene, the award-winning Bakersfield Museum of Art is a must-see, as is the California Living Museum, known as CALM, which exhibits animals and plants native to California.
Additional Salary Information: Please provide salary expectations for expedited consideration.
