Students and recent graduates will be hired under the Pathways programs. Students attending this conference will be encouraged to apply for vacant agency positions during their attendance at the event. This event will only accept applications on-line, through USAJOBs (https://www.usajobs.gov/). A team of Forest Service employees will be available at the convention October 5-6 to assist student with the online application process and or answer questions about the vacant position. Unlike years past, there will not be interviews at the convention. All interviews will be done after the convention (via Skype, VTC).
