Thank you for your interest in the Pathways Programs and the Recent Graduates Program in particular. Issued in December 2010, Executive Order 13562 established a Pathways Programs framework with three program paths tailored to recruit, hire, develop, and retain students and recent graduates. While the Executive Order created the Pathways Programs, they are not yet operational.
We are working vigorously to implement these programs and expect final regulations will be issued sometime this spring. Typically, there is a period of time between when final regulations are issued and when they become effective.
Once the Pathways Programs become effective, agencies may begin using them to hire and we will have more information on how to apply and where to find positions.
Still, it may take some time before job opportunities are available.

I hope this helps.
