GSA Student Pathways Programs

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) provides workplaces by constructing, managing, and preserving government buildings and by leasing and managing commercial real estate. GSA's acquisition solutions offer private sector professional services, equipment, supplies, telecommunications, and information technology to government organizations and the military. GSA policies promote management best practices and efficient government operations.

“The mission of GSA is to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to government and the American people.” To help with this mission GSA offers student employment opportunities under the Federal Government’s Pathways Programs. The GSA’s Intern, Recent Graduates and Presidential Management Fellows Programs offer invaluable, career-defining preparation experiences that range from paid summer internships to career development programs that may lead to permanent jobs.

Programs Available
The Intern Program is designed to provide students enrolled in a wide variety of educational institutions, from high school to graduate level, with opportunities to work in Agencies and explore Federal careers while still in school and while getting paid for the work performed. Individuals who are currently enrolled in a wide variety of educational institutions from high school to graduate level are encouraged to apply. Students who successfully complete the program may be eligible for a permanent job in the civil service.

The Recent Graduates Program provides developmental work experience with the intent of promoting careers in the Federal Government to individuals who have recently graduated from qualifying educational institutions or programs. Interested individuals must apply within two years of completing degree or certificate requirements. Veterans who are not able to meet the 2-year time frame due to military service will have up to six years after degree completion to apply. The Recent Graduates Program offers the potential for a permanent position upon completion of the 1-year developmental program.

The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program is designed to develop potential Federal Government leaders. It offers exceptional students the opportunity to apply for a career in public service. At the end of the fellowship, students have invaluable and prestigious experience - and potential for a permanent position at GSA. Individuals who have a qualifying advanced degree (such as a Masters or professional degree) completed within the past two years are eligible to apply for entry-level positions in the PMF program. At the end of the fellowship individuals may be able to gain a permanent position with GSA
