All current Forest Service job vacancies are posted on USAJOBS. The web-based applications of USAJOBS provide an opportunity for job candidates to create a profile, search for jobs, sign-up for vacancy announcements, apply for jobs, and check the status of jobs for which they have applied.
All permanent jobs are advertised through the USAJOBS website. You can search the current job vacancy announcements by agency, location, salary range, or by "series" (a system that identifies the type of work). Some positions are only open to current Federal Employees; only the jobs open to everyone will be shown in the search results.
How do I apply for Temporary (Seasonal) Employment?
Every Year, the Forest Service hires thousands of temporary (mostly summer) employees for a variety of jobs, most of them in the field. Many positions are advertised on the USAJOBS site in the late winter or spring.
The Rocky Mountain Region announced it will be advertising more than 250 temporary positions throughout the Region’s National Forests and Grasslands starting Jan. 6, 2015. The initial recruitment is primarily for seasonal wildland firefighting positions. The Region comprises 17 national forests and 7 national grasslands, located in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. Click here for more information.
