summer employment

High School/College kid seeking summer employment in the Northern VA area have them apply “EARLY” to get on the list.

IMPORTANT: These announcements will close after the first 150 applicants have submitted. If you know individuals that may be interested in a summer job with USACE in the NCR, I recommend they apply as soon as the announcements open in USAJOBS on 11 March, which will be just after midnight on 10 March. Even though the announcements say they will be open for multiple days through 20 March, we expect numerous applicants on the first day. There may be so many that the announcements may close after the first day they open. So as they say, “the early bird…”

Job opening

Mt. Zion is in need of a part-time custodian, must be able to work early mornings, weekends, and occasional nights. No benefits. Please contact Trustee Allen Jones, 703-221-6960 Ext. 203
