1:55 PM     Get Paid to Help Katrina Evacuees

I just received this from somebody helping with the tracking of all things Katrina. These aren't really high paying jobs, but they're not bad if you're still looking!

So, if you've been out of work for awhile and have any IT skills at all, this may be a place for you to help people in need while making some money to help you.

Let's take a look at the plusses for these jobs:

* They'll pay housing, so you won't be blowing all of your money on that.

* You'll get a lot of hours (12 hours a day * 6 days a week = 72 hours a week)

* Reasonable pay, all things considered. ($19/hr).

* They provide transportation (busses start rolling tomorrow, Wednesday)

* While potentially mind-numbing, they're basically looking for data entry. So, if you're looking here for jobs, you're qualified.

* They're hiring 400 people, so the odds are pretty good.

I honestly don't know if they're paying overtime, but since this *is* the Federal Government, and Federal Government rules say that you have to pay time-and-a-half over 40 hours if the position pays less than $27/hr, you'd think so.

However, being the Federal Government, they are often exempt from their own rules. Ask when you call.

In any case, the woman coordinating this is Mary Valerian. Click on her name to send an e-mail including your resume and a brief description of your skills.
