Join Us at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument!

The National Park Service seeks students, professionals and other qualified individuals from numerous academic disciplines and trades for a wide variety of internship, seasonal, and permanent positions available nationwide. We want a workforce that reflects the unique diversity of the United States.

You must be a United States citizen to be eligible for consideration for employment, and certain jobs may also have age and physical qualifications. Generally, you must be at least 18 years of age. The National Park Service fills positions in accordance with U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) regulations. Normally, a person seeking an initial appointment to a permanent position must gain eligibility on an appropriate OPM register.

How Jobs Are Filled

Federal agencies fill jobs in several ways. Not all jobs are open to external applicants. Agencies can: promote an employee; hire an employee who wants to transfer from another agency; reinstate a former Federal employee; or request the names of applicants from an OPM register.


Internships in the National Park Service are offered through several programs. Eligibility varies by program—internships may be open to undergraduates, graduate students, recent graduates, and/or other young adults. Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument collaborates with both SCA and ACE to provide interns with experience working in national parks.

Your Application

If you are pursuing your first Federal Government position, the best source of information is the job announcement. It will explain what the job duties are, what experience or education is necessary to qualify, the pay, and where to send your application. For more help with your application, visit, the Federal Government's one-stop source for Federal jobs and employment information, or call 1-478-757-3000 or TDD 1-478-744-2299.
