Earlier this week, OPM announced a new executive order on hiring recent grads and pathways. -
Some key changes:
1- Kills Federal Career Intern Program
2 - Creates new Pathway programs for new graduates which is a combination of PMF, agency specific PMF-style programs.
3 - Kills SCEP but renames it Internship programs
4-New recent graduates program - 2 year programs
-Rebranding is needed as names are way better than previous confusing ones (FCIP and SCEP)
-Helps to clean up the programs as they were kind of hidden gems that often operated under unclear guidelines
Keys for Success:
-Now is the time with the relaunch to make these programs flag-ship programs and awesome
-Create great brands, great messages, beautiful campaigns to call to serve - the real Teach for America for government
-Spice it up - make a big push to average Americans via media. Host a nationwide tour of events at college campuses, get celebrities involved
