It’s no secret by now: the federal government has a talent pipeline problem.

Just 6-to-7 percent of federal employees are under the age of 30. Nearly 30 percent of the federal workforce will be eligible to retire in the next five years. But here’s another statistic that should scare agency leaders and federal managers. The number of new hires of student interns to federal agencies has dropped from 35,000 in 2010 to 4,000 in 2018, according to the most recent budget request from the White House. The Trump administration attributed agencies’ reactions to regulatory changes in student programs as the reason behind the new-hire nosedive.
