Click here to see the recruitment bulletin and application for our Fiscal Year 2012 Student Career Experience and Student Temporary Experience Internship Opportunities.

The US Forest Service is seeking Women, Minorities, Veterans and Persons with Disabilities who are freshman and sophomores seeking their bachelor degree. Candidates must be willing to go anywhere in the Region’s 20 states and reside in a rural setting.

Individuals selected for the Student Career Experience Program have a great chance of being given permanent status upon successful completion of 640 hours and their academic degree.

The Student Career Experience Program (SCEP) (formerly the Cooperative Education Program) is designed to integrate classroom study with paid work experience to prepare students for responsible placement into the Forest Service’s permanent workforce.

The Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) also offers students work experience in the Forest Service, but does not offer placement into it’s permanent workforce.  Successful STEP students can be placed into the SCEP program at the Forest Services’ discretion.

This bulletin is aimed primarily at freshman and sophomore students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in a field which, upon graduation, will provide the academic background, knowledge, and skills required for the target position. Students must complete a minimum of 640 hours of work experience prior to graduation.
