Tonight, hundreds of jobs are available in South Florida, as contractors and municipalities scramble for cleanup help.

For many communities, Irma caused a landscaping nightmare, and there are still piles of debris that need to be collected.

Career Source in Palm Beach County is accepting resumes to hire 350 workers for hurricane Irma cleanup.

The positions will be paid for with federal grant money that covers disaster relief positions, which the state applies for and distributes.

Other positions that will be available in Palm Beach County include work for humanitarian programs, like assistance in registering for food stamps.

Private contractors are also searching for help.

So far populations in Delray, Lake Worth, and Belle Glade are the areas that have been most impacted by the storm.

Career Source held a job fair in Broward where they are looking to hire 180 disaster relief workers. You can find more information at the Employ Florida website.
