The Niobrara National Scenic River hires summer seasonal employees for Park Ranger positions in Law Enforcement and Interpretation and as Biologic Technicians in Resource Management each year.
Seasonal vacancy announcements are posted on the federal employment website at www.usajobs.gov and are generally announced in January.
Some of these positions may be filled by qualified students under the Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) hiring authority. To be considered a student must be enrolled at least half-time in a degree or certificate seeking program: be a student in good standing at an accredited school; be enrolled for the following fall term at least half-time; and submit a resume for the position for which they wish to be considered directly to the park.
Permanent position vacancies may also be listed on www.usajobs.gov when they are open for application.
Volunteering is a great way to gain experience with the National Park Service. Check out www.volunteer.gov for opportunities.
