Temporary Employment

Eastern national forests are seeking qualified applicants to fill temporary full-time positions. Many of our employees started their Forest Service careers as temporary (or seasonal) employees. Biological Science Technician, Recreation Technician, and Office Automation Assistant are a few of the temporary positions we offer. While these positions do not guarantee eventual full-time employment with the Forest Service, they do provide a great introduction to what it's like to work for the agency.

“A career with the Forest Service, caring for the land and serving people, is very rewarding. Our temporary hiring program allows individuals to get real world experience working alongside resource professionals. The Eastern Region of the Forest Service is a wonderful and geographically, socially and ecologically complex area that offers many exciting opportunities,” said Eastern Regional Forester Kathleen Atkinson.
