The Forest Service provides outstanding stewardship by restoring, maintaining, and interpreting our public’s cultural and natural resources. To do this we employ several people in a variety of professional, administrative, technical, and clerical positions. The following information can connect you with websites and resources to learn more about searching for and applying to jobs with the Forest Service.


Temporary Employment

Eastern national forests are seeking qualified applicants to fill temporary full-time positions. Many of our employees started their Forest Service careers as temporary (or seasonal) employees. Biological Science Technician, Recreation Technician, and Office Automation Assistant are a few of the temporary positions we offer. While these positions do not guarantee eventual full-time employment with the Forest Service, they do provide a great introduction to what it's like to work for the agency.








Job Vacancy Announcements

Job Vacancy Announcements are those positions that the Forest Service has open and is currently accepting applications for.  These positions must be applied for through the USAJobs application system.
