FEMA is currently seeking up to 15 local employees, which will comprise 10 percent of the FEMA workforce, at its Joint Field Office in Warwick! Civil engineering, administrative management, accounting, and charting and mapping are but a few of the skill sets being sought.
"It is FEMA policy, and the agency makes it a priority, to employ local residents," explained FEMA Federal Coordinating Officer James N. Russo. "It gives us an opportunity to tap into the skills and experience of people who live right here in the Ocean State. Moreover, a paycheck makes it into the hands of some local, unemployed workers on a temporary basis."
Individuals interested in applying should register online at www.EmployRI.org. The initiative is supported by EmployRI and the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training.
