The article reports on federal jobs being offered to graduates of science and engineering courses. It is stated that this opportunity was considered as a prestige for any graduate before and therefore creating an impact in the graduates' careers. But in the present time, it is implied that federal jobs hold less appeal than before. In line with this, the article gives the reasons why such transformation happened and discusses how the United States will be able to find enough scientists and engineers.
