SPECIAL NOTICE: Student Recruitment Event Program Revised
Below is a link to President Obama's Executive Order (EO) that officially sunsets the FCIP program and SCEP/STEP programs effective March 1, 2011. The EO announces the new Pathways student hiring program. The OPM
Pathways Programs contain an Internship Program, a Recent Graduates Program and will also include the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program.
The Internship Program will replace the existing Student Career Experience Program which has been abolished. Also you will notice that the current
STEP program is being replaced as well. Office of Personnel Management will be developing regulations and guidance for this new program in accordance with the EO.
In light of these new developments, the Student Recruitment Event has been revised for the SRM Annual Meetings in Oklahoma City, OK, February 2 - February 8, 2013. Several agencies plan to be onsite at the Rangeland JOBFAIR on Sunday, February 3, 2013, and may be recruiting for available positions.
Special Note: The Job Fair is open to all members and non-members.
Job Seekers: The 2013 Annual Meeting Registration is not required for participation in the Job Fair.
Several federal agencies (USFS, BLM and NRCS) have successfully coordinated Student Recruitment Event programs at the Society for Range Management annual meetings in past years. For example, at the SRM 60th Annual Meeting in Reno, Nevada, 18 Rangeland Management Specialist (RMS, GS-454) entry level vacancies were successfully filled; at the Joint Annual SRM/AFGC meetings in Louisville, Kentucky in 2008, the BLM and USFS successfully filled 17 Rangeland Management Specialist (GS-454) entry level vacancies; at the 62nd Annual Meetings in Albuquerque, NM in 2009 over 40 positions were filled; and in 2010 in Denver, Colorado, over 20 entry-level positions were successfully filled. Several agencies are very interested in pursuing this opportunity again using the new Hiring Authorities at the SRM Annual Meeting in Oklahoma City, February 2013.
