Frequently Asked Questions Employment

Does a student's work experience, while on the student temporary appointment, count towards the required 640 hours necessary for noncompetitive conversion to career-conditional employment?

Yes, if the work performed is related to the student's academic studies and career goals. There should be clear documentation showing the relatedness between the work (actual duties/tasks/assignments) performed while on the Student Temporary Employment Program appointment and the Student Career Experience Program appointment. See 5 CFR § 213.3202(a)(15).
