Default California Attending Job

Hi everyone, i wish to know the necessary requirements to land an attending job in the State of California. I do know that it is necessary to obtain a PTAL to succesfully match into a program within the state boundaries, however, my University is actually not recognized by the MBC, i do not believe that it will become recognized in time for this year´s match. What alternate pathways can i go for? Can i Match into a program somewhere else, finish it, get into subspecialty, an then eventually look for a job in California??? Below are my credentials Thanks!!!!

IMG. YOG 2016 Step 1 242, Step 2 CK/CS not yet taken, looking forward for IM.
