BLM Job Application Process

Located almost entirely in the West, the Bureau of Land Management properties are a conglomeration of trails, acreage, sections of rivers, refuges, and wilderness areas. Unlike Forest Service or Park Service lands, most BLM parcels don’t have their own offices.

Instead, management of BLM land – including hiring for seasonal positions – is done through state offices. For this reason we have provided the phone numbers and addresses for BLM state offices and not the sites themselves (since many of them have no address or employees). The Eastern State Office has jurisdiction over all thirty-one states east of the Mississippi, but BLM property in that half of the country only amounts to sparse plots of land. Seasonal opportunities east of the Mississippi are limited to positions at three BLM district offices: Jackson, Mississippi; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Springfield, Virginia.

For dates, location, and availability of seasonal jobs with the BLM, contact the state office for the region in which you would like to work. Hiring is conducted in one of two ways, depending on which state you apply in. In some states, district offices conduct their own hiring and application process, while in others, hiring is done in cooperation with state employment offices.
