Colville National Forest looking to fill 50 seasonal jobs

The Colville National Forest is looking to fill 50 seasonal jobs in northeast Washington for next summer. Forest officials are going so far as to hold workshops to help applicants fill out forms. Applications must be submitted online at from Nov. 15-21, 2016. Selections will be made from Feb. 13-17, 2017.

Jobs would start anywhere from mid-April to mid-June, 2017 depending on the position, and they typically last until fall.

Available positions are in wildland fire, timber presale and stand improvement, recreation, range, archeology, soils, fisheries, botany, hydrology and wildlife. Positions available range from entry level to those requiring one to four years of experience in a specific field.

Open-house help sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. at the Republic Ranger Station in Republic, and Thursday, November 3, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. at the Three Rivers Ranger Station in Kettle Falls.

The hiring process for summer positions is happening earlier than it has in past years, said Franklin Pemberton, forest spokesman. “Some people may not think about applying until the spring, but by then it will be too late,” he said.
