Employment

This collage shows employees on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest

We offer a variety of employment opportunities, both paid and volunteer, ranging from student programs, volunteer programs, and full time employment for men and women with skills in several hundred areas. It's all here, starting with who we are and what we do.

The Forest Service is constantly moving forward. Our fundamental responsibility is still sound and scientific focus on stewardship and sustainability of the land, water and communities, but how that is delivered to the public is changing. Exciting advances in science and technology, communications, national and global priorities, and public expectations are opening new vistas for Forest Service employees.

Much of our work today involves collaboration with other Federal and State agencies, local communities, private and tribal landowners, university research centers, and international organizations.

We are a nationwide organization of more than 30,000 people engaged in hundreds of specific occupations, including; Foresters, Biologists, Engineers, Teachers, Firefighters, Accountants, Computer Specialists, Law Enforcement, Public Affairs Specialists, Recreation Specialists, Geographic Information Specialists, and more. Most Forest Service employees focus on managing and improving our Nation's forests and grasslands. Some employees focus on Forest and Range research, others focus on human resource development in Job Corps Centers, and others focus on state and private forestry coordination. This may sound simple, but it's not. It takes men and women in several hundred disciplines working in coordinated teamwork nationwide.
