The Siuslaw National Forest is hiring up to 50 temporary seasonal workers to support several program areas in 2015. Positions will be open to applicants in three phases beginning in January for jobs with start dates in March, April, and, for the majority, June.
The positions will be based in Siuslaw National Forest offices along the Oregon coast, with duty stations in Hebo, Waldport, Reedsport, and Florence. There may also be up to two openings in Corvallis. Temporary seasonal positions serve in different program areas, including fire, timber, interpretation, volunteer coordination, customer service, and recreation.
“Seasonal employment with the Forest Service is a great way to learn new skills, see what it takes to manage public lands, and have fun,” says Jerry Ingersoll, Forest Supervisor for the Siuslaw National Forest. “We rely on the extra help we get from our energetic seasonal staff to get us through the busy summer months.”
Applicants interested in these jobs will be able to apply through www.usajobs.gov. Vacancy announcements for positions will be posted there in three different time periods.
· The first opportunity for candidates to apply will be for all temporary fire-related positions, with the possibility of certain job openings in other program areas as well. Applications will be accepted for these positions Jan. 6-12.
· The second round of applications will be accepted for all non-fire-related positions not addressed in the January job announcement. Applications will be accepted for this round of hiring Feb. 4-10.
· The third opportunity for applying for a temporary position will be in March.
