USFS summer jobs open
The U.S. Forest Service is using a new centralized hiring process for temporary or seasonal jobs in national forests throughout Oregon and Washington.
Phase 1 hiring includes all temporary fire-related jobs and any other temporary positions requiring hiring prior to May 3, 2015. The application period is Jan. 6 – 12, 2015. Phase 2 involves all non-fire related temporary positions. Applications must be submitted Feb. 4 – 10, 2015. Phase 3 is the “catch all” period, for positions that were not filled during phase 1 or phase 2.
A list of all the temporary fire-related jobs that need to be filled this summer on the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest will be posted on the Forest Service Albuquerque Service Center web site at https://fsoutreach.gdcii.com/Outreach.
Additional information is available by contacting Forest Training Officer Jason Heinz at (509) 664-9235; or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each series includes six separate workshops on topics such as putting together a business plan, legal and tax issues, planning, financing, marketing, cash management and record keeping.
All workshops will be held from noon – 2 p.m. in the SCORE Office at 2 South Chelan St. in Wenatchee. The registration fee is $100 per series or $250 for all three. You may register for any one session of each series for $25. Register by calling the SCORE office at (509) 888-2900.
