Workforce Recruitment Program
The Workforce Recruitment Program (new window) for College Students with Disabilities (WRP), coordinated by the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Defense, is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and select private-sector employers with highly motivated college students, graduate students, and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs.
If you are interested in applying to the program and interviewing with a representative from WRP, please visit WRP.gov (new window) and click “Students Register Now!” to get started! Please use a computer or tablet and not a mobile device.
Eligible students must:
– have a disability and be eligible under the Schedule A hiring authority (new window)
– be a United States citizen or national
– be currently enrolled in a degree program on a substantially full-time basis OR have graduated with a degree on or after April 1, 2019.
Please note that new and returning WRP applicants must register and complete an application each program year to continue to participate. Use a computer or tablet to register and complete the application. Information about how to log in and register on the WRP’s website is attached below.
For more information or questions about WRP, please contact Brittney Klein (new window) in the ARC. Have questions on applying to the federal government and/or creating a federal resume? Contact Beth Schill (new window) in the Cawley Career Education Center.
Registration will close October 14, but please have all materials in the system by October 7th to allow the coordinators time to review your application. All finalized application materials must be uploaded to the WRP site by October 13 by 11:59 pm PST. No late applications will be accepted.
You will need time to get your registration approved by your Coordinator, so gather your resume and transcript, and complete your application – please don’t delay!
