On December 27, 2010, President Obama signed Executive Order 13562, entitled “Recruiting and Hiring Students and Recent Graduates,”. This executive order establishes the Pathways Programs, consisting of three excepted-service programs (Internship Program; Recent Graduates Program; Presidential Management Fellows Program).
The Pathways Programs offer clear paths to Federal internships for students from high school through post-graduate school; career opportunities for recent graduates; and meaningful training and career development opportunities for individuals who are at the beginning of their Federal service. The Pathways Programs at HHS include the following three programs:
- The Internship Program
- The HHS Recent Graduates Program
- Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program
