For over a century, since 1905, USDA Forest Service employees have been on the front line of conservation, intelligent resource utilization and wildland management. Today, managing some of the most magnificent lands in our nation is a great responsibility. Managing it in ways that are most effective for the land, water, air, wildlife and people of America is our mission.

More about the Forest Service mission.

Permanent and Temporary Positions

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 (https://www.usajobs.gov/).

If a position is not currently vacant but becomes vacant during the hiring process, we will backfill during this time. Apply to any location/position you are interested in whether it is currently vacant or not.

National Forest Service Outreach Notices
