FEMA Hosting Job Fair Friday and Saturday For Disaster Recovery Work


COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is hosting a job fair on July 12 – 13, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Ohio Public Safety Department building in Columbus to fill positions relating to disaster recovery work in Ohio and other locations across the country.

The job fair will be held in the Atrium at the Ohio Public Safety Department, 1970 W. Broad Street in Columbus.

Positions available include Environmental Historic Preservation Specialist, Financial Management Specialist, Equal Rights Advisor and American Sign Language Interpreters, among others.

FEMA also has job opportunities within its Public Assistance (PA) Program. This program provides federal funding to state and local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the disaster. Available positions include Public Assistance Program Delivery Manager and Public Assistance Site Inspector, which involve working with applicants to develop PA projects and help ensure federal requirements are being met.

All open FEMA positions are temporary, intermittent positions that may require frequent traveling.

Job-seekers will have the opportunity to talk with FEMA Human Resources staff who will provide job opening information and discuss the federal hiring process. Guidance will also be available on preparing a federal resume.

Attendees should bring their resume, valid driver’s license and Social Security card or passport and be prepared for a screening interview. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and able to pass a background check to be considered for employment. If job seekers are unable to attend the job fair and would like to apply, they can visit USAJobs.gov starting July 11 and search the keyword “FEMA” in the location “Ohio.”
