Hiring former students

Note: Hiring former students into the federal public service was previously referred to as student bridging.

Managers can hire former students into temporary or permanent positions in the federal public service after they have graduated. A former student must meet the merit criteria and the conditions of appointment for the position being staffed.

The decision to hire former students is based on the individual business needs of each organization. For additional information, we encourage you to contact your departmental human resources representative.
