County jobs on line

   King County job announcements now have their own web site. The County Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM) has developed a home page on the World Wide Web in an effort to make information about employment opportunities more accessible to the public. Employment listings are updated every Monday. In addition, the page offers information on how to apply for county jobs and resource numbers. OHRM also plans to establish links to other employment-related home pages.
   For more information, visit the site at http://www.metrokc.gov, or contact Julie Halme by phone at 296-8571 or by e-mail at julie.halme@metrokc.gov.
