Federal Internship Program

The new federal government's recruiting tools now falls under a program called Pathways Programs, which Office of Personnel Management kicked off in May 2012.  These programs include the Pathways Internship Program, which is designed for current students, and Pathways Recent Graduates Program, which is designed for individuals who are soon to graduate or have graduated within the past 2 years (or 6 years for veterans). 

Both Internship and Recent Graduates programs require all positions to be posted on USAJOBs.  

We recommend students and alumni become familiar with this website, and create an account and search agent.  The search agent can be established to e-mail them notification whenever Internship or Recent Graduates jobs become available, so they do not miss a chance to apply.  

Below are links to documents/websites that will assist candidates with this process.
