Important Hint: Some job announcements will be for individual positions at a single location. Other job announcements, known as open-continuous recruitment (OCR) bulletins, will be for positions that are available at a variety of locations across the U.S
An OCR provides a list of interested and qualified applicants available for current and future job vacancies by drawing from an already established applicant pool. Applicants apply to one vacancy and can choose up to nine locations versus having to apply to nine separate vacancy announcements.
To apply for a vacancy on the Coconino National Forest, the locations selected through an OCR should be Flagstaff, AZ; Sedona, AZ; and/or Happy Jack, AZ.
