Announcement Number: 2013-HQP-0154
Vacancy Description: Pathways Intern - Law Clerk CG-0999-7/9 (Temporary Appointment NTE 09/30/14)
Location: Legal Division – Washington, DC
Open Period 1/17/14 – 2/10/14
For Outside Applicants

From prior experience, base pay for these positions (starting at CG-7) is around $20 + locality adjustment per hour. I'm currently doing the program at one of the regional offices while going to law school, so I wanted to pass this along. PM me if you have any questions about it.

I don't know this pathway program. Are these potentially temp to hire positions?

FWIW, I was in the Pathways program but in a different gov't agency (DOL -- regional office)

I really loved the program. They were really flexible with my hours around law school, let me get health insurance + other benefits. It is basically a long term internship with the potential for hire at the end of the program, as long as you dont mess up (I moved away so the hiring issue never came up). So yes, there was tedious grunt work involved, but I also got opportunities to do more relevant things to the agency. Hope that explains it, kind of?

From what I understand, the only post-grad hiring possibility is through the Honors program, for which the FDIC only has 3 slots for Legal each year (unless it is adjusted upward from past years). My experience doing the Pathway program has been great, and it has been very flexible with my school commitments. It was for an initial one-year term, but it may be extended beyond that into my last year of school. Great experience and in DC, you'll have the possibility of exposure to a wide variety of legal issues.
