I have questions. I am permanent employee by DoD and I applied FEMA for financial management position. I am going to have interview with them tomorrow. I just found out It is CORE NTE 2 years. since I am permanent employee, is it worth to try CORE position. what is the difference between CORE and Permanent.

It sounds to me like CORE positions are simply normal federal "Term" positions for a specific FEMA program (Cadre of On-Call Response/Recovery Employees). While the terms may be extended "if there is ongoing disaster work and funding is available," it does not appear that there is any guarantee of going beyond the initial 2- or 4-year term. Also, you would be giving up a permanent position. Therefore, you would be looking for employment after the term expires. I once did the same thing and the agency announced a downsizing during my term, so I was scrambling to find another permanent position. It's a pretty big risk, but personal/individual considerations are always a factor. Only you can decide if the risk is worth the potential reward.
