Signed December 27, 2010

All links will open in a new window.

Use this link to return to the main list of President Obama's Executive Orders.

This Executive Order joins two programs into one with the intent of attracting a more youthful, diverse and knowledgeable staff for entry level placement into the Federal Government for long term career opportunities by reducing the entry level requirements for hiring.

The two programs are the Internship and Recent Graduates Program as well as the Presidential Management Fellows Program into one collectively joined unit to be known as the "Pathways" Program.

The EO goes on to explain each of the new sections and rules which will govern the operation of each of the programs and who will have oversight of the operation of the programs.

This Executive Order supersedes EO 12015 signed October 26, 1977 by President Jimmy Carter and Revokes EO 13318 signed November 21, 2003 by President George W. Bush.

    Oh so OBAMA only cares about those recently graduating from college getting jobs, and says to hell with those who have already been working for a while but are looking for better career opportunities. In other words, OBAMA's mindset is that those who are currently employed can stay where they are and he only cares about those who currently don't have a job. I recently received an email from a government organization that I applied for a job with under the Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP), which OBAMA revoked with the Executive Order 13562 he signed in December 2010. When he revoked FCIP, he did not allow OPM to make any exemptions for those positions that would not bring applicants on board by 02/28/2011. This seems like a waste of taxpayer money since I was nearly all the way through the background check, which probably costs the U.S. taxpayers about $50,000-$100,000 per applicant, and then OBAMA says "OH, to hell with the money we have spent on the applicants so far, its only taxpayer money".

    Apparantley, OBAMA does not care at all about those who have been unemployed for quite some time, but are not within 2 years of having earned their college degree either.
