On December 27, 2010, The President signed Executive Order 13562, “Recruiting and Hiring Students and Recent Graduates”. The Executive Order established the Pathways Program which is aimed at providing clear paths to internships and careers in the Federal Government for students and recent graduates. This Program consists of three excepted-service programs, the Internship Program, the Recent Graduates Program, and a reinvigorated Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program. On May 11, 2012 the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued the final regulations to implement the Pathways Programs which were made effective on July 10, 2012.
