1000 jobs now open for the US Forest Service in the Pacific Northwest

Anyone looking to get their foot in the door with the US Forest Service has a huge opportunity.

The Forest Service announced that they are hiring 1,000 temporary positions for the spring and summer jobs throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Anyone local looking to apply can do so now at USAJOBS.gov, and searching for “Forest Service” in Washington.

Jobs are available throughout the NW, including locally. Park Ranger and Forestry Technician positions are currently available in Quinault as well as other locations in our region.

Applications will be accepted until Dec. 7 for these positions, which include everything from Park Ranger to Archaeology Technician.

“Seasonal employment with the Forest Service is a great way to give back to communities, learn new skills and perform meaningful work,” regional forester Jim Peña told the Statesman Journal.

Applications must be submitted on USAJOBS.gov. While most are temporary positions, they say that they could be extended following the initial period.

More information about temporary employment in the Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Region can be found at www.fs.usda.gov/main/r6/jobs.
