CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Government House said that “a wide variety of new career opportunities within the Government of the U.S. Virgin Islands are now available to the public.”

Job openings include positions in accounting, education, law enforcement and engineering.

“Through the tireless and strategic efforts of Governor Kenneth Mapp and the assistance of our federal partners, we are pleased to be in a position to offer meaningful employment opportunities to the general public,” said Director of Personnel Milton Potter. “Please get your applications in and, together, let us rebuild paradise better and stronger than ever.”

Governor Mapp encouraged members of the community to share the job listings with friends and family living outside the territory. Those that are wanting to get into such job opportunities like accounting, could benefit from looking at resources by the University of Alabama Birmingham and other institutions that are similar.

“This is an opportunity for Virgin Islanders to return home and to assist in the long-term recovery effort,” he said. “Perhaps more than ever before, we need the expertise of our best and brightest.”

To learn more about the positions available visit the Division of Personnel’s website.

Information about U.S. Virgin Islands employment opportunities is also available at the Department of Labor website.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
