We would like to share these opportunities with our current students, graduates, and site visitors. The internships on this page will be listed from new to old. We have chosen to retain many expired internship postings in order to enable visitors to see what types of internships are available in this field.

Pathways Student Intern for Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area on Admiralty Island, Tongass National Forest, Alaska, Posted: 1/28/14

Description-pdf: OUTREACH.TongassNF.AdmiraltyNMPackCreek.GS0499_3_4_5

Admiralty Island National Monument will soon be advertising a GS-0499-3/4/5 Pathways Student Intern (Recreation) position to work at the world-class Pack Creek Brown Bear Viewing Area on the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska.  This is a great opportunity for students interested in joining a progressive wilderness program on Admiralty Island – a National Monument, designated wilderness, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and home to one of the densest brown bear populations in the world.  While the student intern completes their studies, the summer work schedule will occur around their school schedule (e.g June to August).  Upon successful completion of education degree requirements, on-the-job training and meeting OPM qualifications, the position will non-competitively convert to a 13/13 permanent seasonal GS-0462-5 Forestry Technician (Wilderness) position.

Anyone interested is encouraged to complete the attached Outreach Response Form.  Respondents will be notified via email when the vacancy announcement becomes available.  You will still need to apply for the job separately.   Please reply to the attached outreach by February 14, 2014.
