Interested in a temporary job on the Santa Fe National Forest(SFNF) next summer? Starting Monday, Sept. 16, the Forest Service will be accepting applications for temporary spring and summer jobs on www.usajobs.gov. The application period closes Sept. 25.
The SFNF will be hiring seasonal employees to work in fire, recreation, range, wildlife and fisheries, archaeology and timber.
Temporary employees are an essential part of the Forest Service workforce during the busy spring and summer field season each year. Spending a summer on the SFNF is a great way to gain valuable work experience, apply your education to a practical work environment and try out different career fields. Many permanent Forest Service employees began their careers as temporary employees.
All temporary positions are open to the public. The only way to apply for one of these jobs is through the government’s www.usajobs.govwebsite. Generally, each forest will make selections in early December. Successful applicants must submit fingerprints and consent to a background investigation. Seasonal employees generally work from May through September, but some positions could start as early as March 2020.
More information about temporary positions on New Mexico and Arizona national forests and how to apply for these jobs is available on the Southwestern Region’s 2020 Outreach Notice.
Working for the Forest Service offers unique opportunities, beautiful places to work and colleagues who are committed to “caring for the land and serving people.” For more information on Forest Service careers, benefits and opportunities, visit the Forest Service’s Working with Us webpage.
