Forest Service Now Accepting 2019 Seasonal Job Applications
IDAHO FALLS, ID – The Caribou-Targhee National Forest is currently accepting job applications for the 2019 Spring/Summer season through October 15, 2018. Seasonal employment opportunities are available in multiple fields including but not limited to fire and fuels, recreation and trails, range, timber, engineering, visitor services and archaeology. Most jobs pay $12 to $16 per hour and typically last three to six months.
The application dates are earlier than previous years in order to allow the agency to ensure background checks and security processes are complete before the employee’s start date. Applications must be submitted on www.usajobs.gov before the October 15, 2018 deadline. Candidates will be selected in January and usually begin work in April through June.
