Under the Pathways program there right now there is no requirement to be in college in a field directly related to the position. What happens the first time management wants to hire a student in the program as a permanent employee in a professional series with completely unrelated college courses. Once they convert from the Pathways program then they would fall under the OPM quals standards I assume. OPM Quals standards for professional positions require a degree directly related to the field. Would permanent students always be excempt from OPM quals standards? Would we not be able to hire permanent students in a professional series? If we can hire in a professional series would we have to terminate as soon as they coplete the Pathways program?
