Types of Vacancies
All permanent jobs are advertised through the USAJOBSwebsite. You can search the openings by agency, location, salary range, or by "series" (a system for identifying 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.
Fire Hire - Permanent Jobs
This change in the hiring process is in response to a continual vacancy situation that all national forests in the Region currently face. The unique feature of this process is the ability to immediately backfill positions that have been vacated during the fire hiring process. This is not for summer seasonal temporary positions - More Information.
