US Government Hiring For Burning Man’s Black Rock Desert

The United States Government wants YOU! Well, not you necessarily, preferably someone qualified. But, the government is hiring for a new position directly related to Burning Man! On a post to the government employment site USAJOBS, the Bureau of Land Management is seeking a “Project Manager” to supervise the land on which Burning Man is annually held. That land, known as the Black Rock Desert, is protected as part of the BLM’s National Landscape Conservation System. As stated on the BLM site:

“The mission of the Conservation System is to conserve, protect and restore nationally significant landscapes that have outstanding cultural, ecological and scientific values for present and future generations of Americans.”

To some, the value of such a barren environment isn’t immediately comprehensible. However, the area actually is home to historic Westward emigrant trails and an exceptionally unique ecosystem. According to the job listing, the position is permanent and will require both office and field presence. Applicants should know that this opportunity demands a relocation to Winnemucca, Nevada and an expectation for travel. The estimated salary ranges from $69,000-$90,000 a year depending on experience. The application, which is available to all US citizens, is open until Monday, February 8th, 2016. Burning Man Festival attracts upwards of 60,000 people each year for 9 days of a creatively-driven experience off the grid. This year’s celebration will last from August 28th until September 5th, 2016. Information on tickets is available here.

East coast origin, West coast lifestyle… Growing up I was always surrounded by the sounds of dance music in New York and Florida. However, it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the rave scene and finally experienced the love and positivity this community is all about. I’m into warehouse undergrounds and massives like Ultra Miami, TomorrowWorld, Nocturnal Wonderland, Hard Day of the Dead, and Buku Music & Art Festival… In addition to EDM, my playlists usually have a lot of Hip-Hop, Top 40 and I’m a huge sucker for throwbacks. Hit me up if you’re attending an event in the Hollywood/LA area, as I’m always open to making new friends!
