If you are/know an entry level engineer, check out these positions! Typically an undergrad degree would qualify you for the GS-5, and if you had really good grades you could qualify for the GS-7 through "superior academic achievement" (details in the announcement). This is a pretty sweet opportunity to get in on the ground level with some huge projects funded by the Great American Outdoors Act (as well as other fund sources).
Note: This is NOT restricted to "Recent Graduates" in the Pathways Program definition of the phrase! Anyone with a relevant degree can apply!
Recent engineering graduates, consider an engineering career with the National Park Service!
