PS: I forgot to mention one important point: many courts in CA state that they're "hiring" interpreters, but what they're ACTUALLY DOING is building "Eligibility Lists" for use at some imaginary point in time when they estimate that free money from massively overpriced real estate and mortgage fraud will once again flow like rivers of honey thru-out the Land. Good luck with THAT.
At the rate this country is collapsing financially I guess that would mean that hiring will resume once again sometime around the year 2097, give or give several decades.
Problem is, people in America will mostly be speaking Mandarin by then, so Spanish interps will be out of the picture regardless. BTW, the ONLY court-certified interpreters who can look forward to a BRIGHT and SHINEY jobs future will be PRECISELY those capable of interpreting Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, Cambodian, Thai, and other Asian languages. Los demas a freir churros por idiotas.
