Are you interested in a temporary job with FEMA working on the current COVID-19 disaster?
FEMA frequently hires what they call “local Hires” during a disaster to fill in the ranks and they need to expand their workforce. They have a job announcement out now for the Puget Sound area for local hires to work in the emergency operations center in Bothell. These jobs are data management/analyst types of jobs. The person needs to be proficient with typical office software (power point, work, excel, SharePoint) and willing to work shifts up to 12 hours a day. They will be compiling data form numerous sources, creating reports, and archiving data. Specific job training will be provided on the job. It’s a bit like drinking from a fire hose the first week, but everyone catches on pretty quick. These jobs are temporary hires for this disaster only. That may be weeks or it may be months. No one knows at this point.
Here is the link to the application and more information.
