as interns who are enrolled at least half-time in qualifying educational programsfor the Pathway Recent Graduates Program, which is for applicants who have completed qualifying post-high school educational programsand the Presidential Management Fellows Program which targets graduate and post-graduate degree holders interested in the junior ranks of federal management.With the recent high retirements in government, there are upcoming positions for new graduates with all majors.

The Student's Federal Career Guide is a student career resource that helps students understand USAJOBS, which is the is the United States Government's official website for listing civil service job opportunities with federal agencies, so that they can emphasize their qualifications, skills, and competencies for positions targeted to the latest class of graduates. 

Recent graduates do not know that the federal resume is not the same as the private industry resume. This new edition shows former students how to feature education, courses, papers and projects from college courses increasing their chances of getting hired.  The Student's Federal Career Guide includes sample resumes, charts and screen shots from USAJOBS.
