In Region 5 of the US Forest Service, TEAMS (Timber Experts And Measurements
Services) will be hiring both temporary and permanent positions this spring.
There will be several permanent seasonal GS-0462-5, 6, 7 appointments that
will be open to the public. This is a perfect position for a forestry grad
or a longtime temporary to get his/her foot in the door. Also, this position
will allow you to move up non-competetively when you meet the specs. Keep
watching the OPM website at to see when it

I think there may also be a couple of professional Forester trainee
positions coming up as well. Temporary positions will be filled from the
Temp hiring system based in Boise. It is important that you put Sequoia
National Forest as your preference for temporary work. "Duty Stations" are
"virtual" in that you are almost always in travel status, getting "per diem"
and lodging paid for. Travel status policies are 21 work days on then, home
for a week. There is always plenty of overtime available, too.

TEAMS is a growing "Enterprise" within Region 5's "Reinvention Lab". We do
all kinds of natural resource projects, bidding on government projects and
operating like a private business with no funding from Congress. TEAMS has
both a Planning side and an Implementation side.

This is the biggest opportunity to come along in a long time within the
Forest Service. If you are highly skilled or educated in natural resources,
or just have a serious desire to get your boot in the door, apply to work
with TEAMS Enterprise this spring. For more info, drop me a line at
