Want to make somewhere between $14 and $34 and help with Harvey storm recovery in the process?
The Federal Emergency Management Agency might have the gig for you.
With weeks, months and years of recovery ahead in southeast Texas after Harvey made landfall near Rockport as a Category 4 hurricane late on Friday, Aug. 25, FEMA needs help to get the work jump-started. The agency is hiring throughout the state, not just in areas directly affected by Harvey.
Some of the open jobs include: administrative support assistant, civil engineer, communications specialist, construction cost estimator, courier, crisis counselor, customer service specialist, environmental specialist, floodplain management specialist, graphics specialist, hazard mitigation outreach specialist, historic preservation specialist, as well as nurse and voluntary agency liaison. The jobs are described as “temporary” in a FEMA news release.
Never miss a local story.
The first step in being considered for the open jobs is registering on the Texas Workforce Commission’s website, which is something of a process.
FEMA said in the news release that it plans to announce more jobs soon.
