PORTLAND, Ore. — Aug. 29, 2018 — Are you a teacher, student, retiree, winter ski-instructor, or anyone else who may be looking for opportunities to work in the great outdoors this summer?
More than 1,000 seasonal jobs, in positions ranging from archaeology to trails maintenance to biological sciences to wildland firefighting will be offered on National Forests in the Pacific Northwest for summer 2019 – but if you want these jobs, you’ll need to plan ahead.
This year, summer job applications must be submitted online at USAJobs.gov during the summer jobs application window, which runs from mid-September through mid-Octomber, 2019.
This seasonal application window is earlier than in previous years, to ensure the agency is able to complete background checks and other pre-employment requirements before the prospective employee’s anticipated start date.
Seasonal Forest Service employees help provide clean water, wildlife habitat, sustainable forest products, wildfire support, and recreation opportunities on 17 National Forests, a National Scenic Area, two National Volcanic Monuments, and one National Grassland in Washington and Oregon, each summer.
Potential applicants are encouraged to access the USAJobs website early to allow time to create their profile, upload their resume, and update their user accounts before the application period opens.
Summer, 2019 vacancies will be posted Sept. 17 through Oct. 12, 2018.
