The Office of Personnel Management announced Friday it plans to revamp the way the federal government brings students and recent graduates into the federal workforce.
Pathways will have a new Internship program, targeting current high school, college and select home-schooled students.
A brand new program, the Recent Graduates Program, will target recent graduates within two years of degree completion. Veterans precluded from completing their degree due to military service obligations can apply within six years. Successful applicants are entered into a two-year career development program.
OPM also announced it is expanding the eligibility window for applicants to the Presidential Management Fellows Program. The PMF Program targets candidates with advanced degrees.
OPM said it is accepting public comments on the proposals until Oct. 4. The final rules are expected to be announced in early 2012.
