The Presidential Management Fellows Program has been around for more than 30 years and is the best way to start a career in the federal government. PMFs can apply to jobs across the federal government and, in the two years of the program, can advance GS pay grade levels.
Sponsoring Agency: This is the primary agency where you will work for the two years of the Fellowship. PMF finalists have one year after they pass the assessments to get hired by a sponsoring agency.
Rotational Opportunities: All PMFs rotate to at least one other bureau, division, office, program, or agency during the two years. The idea is to give PMFs a broader understanding of the government.
Training Opportunities: PMFs grow their professional skills through 80 hours of annual training, totaling 160 hours over the two years.
If selected as a PMF, you will have advantages in finding a job in federal government but it does not guarantee you a job.
