Forest Service job fairs scheduled at local labor offices


POST REGISTER

The U.S. Forest Service has scheduled job fairs for Monday at all three Idaho Department of Labor offices in eastern Idaho.

The fairs will run from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. The offices are at 1515 E. Lincoln Road in Idaho Falls, 1133 Stocks Ave. in Rexburg and 155 N. Maple St. in Blackfoot.

Forest Service representatives will be at each office to answer questions and discuss job opportunities, according to a Department of Labor news release. The agency has jobs in fire management and recreation planning. It also has job openings as engineering, wildlife, range management and fisheries technicians. These jobs are predominately seasonal and in the summer, but they can be stepping stones to permanent employment, the release said.

Veterans are encouraged to participate in one of the job fairs.
