The agency is hiring throughout the state, not just in areas directly affected by Harvey.
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.
Administrative, logistical and technical jobs are available on local, state and federal levels, as well as voluntary agencies and community organizations.
Through temporary local employees, FEMA hopes to gain community insights and provide jobs that put Texans to work helping Texans, the agency said. Recent jobs posted pay between $14 and $34 per hour, and positions range from civil engineer to customer service specialist to registered nurses. Those interested must register with the Texas Workforce Commission's website. FEMA keeps track of scams and rumors on this web page, so people can make sure the places they are applying are legitimate.
