It’s been a year of layoffs and job uncertainty for many. 

However, there's some good news for job seekers on the Central and South Coasts, as USPS officials say they're looking to recruit 200 staff across the region to cope with increased demand. 

As package and volumes continue to increase due to the steady trend of online shopping, the Postal Service say they anticipate an influx of mail volume in advance of the upcoming holiday season and are looking to hire in numerous roles.
