Due to a lapse in federal funding, this USDA website will not be actively updated. Once funding has been reestablished, online operations will continue. On-going operational updates will be posted here (https://www.fs.fed.us/shutdown) as we are able to provide them.

Summer Jobs

The seasonal job oppotunity window for summer 2019 jobs  has closed. Please look through this page to get familiar with the kinds of jobs and locations we may have next year.


Permanent Employment

  • All permanent jobs are advertised through the USAJOBS website. 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.
  • For permanent fire jobs, visit our Fire Hire site!  Fire Hire is an annual hiring window in early fall.  The Fire Hire window for upcoming jobs in 2019 has closed.

Ongoing opportunities: You can always view current and upcoming Forest Service job opportunities across the nation online by clicking on our Forest Service job outreach page.

Our Washington Office site includes additional information on How to Apply, Salary & Benefits, Student Programs, as well as Volunteering.
