United States Government

The following United States Office Of Personnel Management (USOPM)  pages are linked and are slightly different from one another:

  • USAJOBS - United States Office Of Personnel Management  --  The US gov has tons of excellent positions related to life sciences and animals.  When I went to USAJOBS and, as a test, punched up jobs available in APHIS (Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service) in the Department of Agriculture (USDA) I found current openings as Animal Care Inspectors, Animal Health technicians, Biological research assistants ... among others.  In the Fish and Wildlife Dept (Department of the Interior) many biological aids, wildlife management and field research technicians.  Department of the Interior has similar field positions and biologist positions. US Department of Homeland Security has a canine training and canine branch for Border Patrol work.   And .... The US Government is an excellent site for student summer employment and internships.
