This Information Bulletin serves to inform State/District/Field Offices of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to coordinate the use of Pathways Programs for the  recruitment of the following agency occupational series: Rangeland Management Specialists (0454), Natural Resource Specialists (0401), Range Technicians (0455) and Wildlife Biologists (0486). This recruitment effort will occur sequentially via USAJOBS, and then at the 66th Society for Range Management (SRM) Annual Meeting and Tradeshow in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  The SRM Job Fair is on Sunday, February 3, 2013, and opportunities for on-site and phone interviews will occur from February 4 through 6, 2013. An interview room for the BLM has been set aside for this purpose. If you wish to participate in this recruitment effort, refer to the attachment for details on the recruitment event and how to participate.  All participation responses are due to Mr. Marc Pointel no later than Friday, January 11, 2013. 

The SRM meetings have consistently provided successful opportunities for students and young professionals during the recruitment event.  This year Human Resources Specialists will be available in Oklahoma City to oversee the interview effort and to initiate the hiring process.  All applicants must submit applications in advance of the meeting using http://www.usajobs.gov/under the Pathways Programs. No applications will be accepted on-site. Certificates of eligible candidates will be generated prior to the SRM event. Hiring officials are expected to be in Oklahoma City to conduct prior scheduled candidate on-site or phone interviews.
