EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites.

Typical assignments include:
  • Developing recruitment strategies for management officials;
  • Conducting job analyses and developing valid and reliable assessment tools;
  • Conducting qualification reviews of applicants and issuing certificates of best-qualified applicants to management officials;
  • Corresponding with candidates regarding opportunities within FEMA and their application status;
  • Effecting appropriate placement actions in conformance with applicable precedents, laws and regulations.
