    Obama to shut down Federal Career Intern Program

    President Obama plans to issue an executive order, perhaps as early as this week, ending a federal internship program that critics say circumvents proper hiring practices.

    Since it began in 2001, the Federal Career Intern Program has been used to hire more than 100,000 people - few of them interns as traditionally understood and many of them border and customs officers who later became full-time federal employees.

    The program has drawn fire from federal employee unions and from the government board that oversees federal hiring practices, which ruled in November that the program undermined the rights of veterans, in particular, who were seeking federal work.

    Since this come from Shitnow there must be more to it. The opposition by the government employees' union further suggests this was a good program and is being shut down due to union pressure on their monkey.

    from the link-

    The FCIP was created by President Bill Clinton in 2000 with the stated goal of attracting "exceptional men and women to the Federal workforce" and preparing them "for careers in analyzing and implementing public programs."

    About 400 people were hired under the streamlined rules of the program in 2001, but that number quickly grew - to 6,600 in 2004 and more than 26,700 in 2009. Agencies were able to hire much faster than usual under the program because they did not have to advertise open positions.

    The Office of Personnel and Management, which oversees the program, had no comment on the president's plans.

    Although federal worker unions have criticized and challenged the program, managers have often liked it for the hiring flexibility and speed it allows.

    The Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit group that studies the federal workforce, also has been supportive of the FCIP.

    snip

    A concerted effort by federal employee unions to revamp or terminate the program got a boost in November with the Merit Systems Protection Board's ruling that it violates the preference veterans are granted in federal hiring.

    the prgm was a winner. I am VERY familiar with the prgm....the union was pissed off they could not exercise THEIR nepotistic tendencies etc. Think the tag "Veteran" means only army navy air force marine or coast guard? think again.Advertise opens positions is not quite accurate or germane really in this context. Please read the entire article.
