The Pathways Programs being covered in this session include:

1. Internship Program
" Provides paid opportunities for students who are currently enrolled in or accepted for enrollment in a qualifying educational institution to work in federal agencies and explore career paths related to their academic field of study or career interest.
" Allows agencies to meet temporary and short-term hiring needs while providing the opportunity to learn about a student's skills and competencies before hiring into permanent positions.

and

2. Recent Graduates Program
" A one-year development program that promotes civil service careers to recent graduates who have received a degree or certificate from a qualifying educational institution within the previous two years.
" Provides agencies with the ability to learn about recent graduates competencies, skills, and fit before providing the opportunity for non-competitive conversion to a permanent position.

Learn more about how to navigate the qualification and application process, as well as anticipated dates for when to apply.

We look forward to connecting with you soon!
