Employment

The Forest Service offers positions for both permanent and temporary employees. Permanent positions are for full-time employees and provide a flexible range of Federal government benefits. Temporary positions are for part-time or seasonal employees and provide benefits that vary with the position and the location. Due to the seasonal nature of many of the responsibilities of the Forest Service, such as wildfire fighting and seasonal recreation programs, many temporary workers are required.

The US Forest Service has implemented an application program for nationwide centralized recruitment notices. Applicants can apply online at USAJOBS.gov. For current Forest Service opportunities in California, go to USAJOBS; options on this page will help you to narrow your search before selecting submit.
