How Do I Apply?

Apply for Permanent Employment:

  • All permanent jobs are advertised through the usajobs website. You can search the current job vacancy announcements by agency, location, salary range, or by "series" (a system that identifies 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.

Apply for Temporary (Seasonal) Employment:

  • Every Year, the Forest Service hires thousands of temporary (mostly summer) employees for a variety of jobs, most of them in the field. Many positions are advertised on the usajobs site in the late winter or spring. You can view current and upcoming Forest Service job opportunities - across the nation - online at: https://fsoutreach.gdcii.com/Outreach.
