Career Services to offer Workforce Recruitment Program to Students with Disabilities

Career Services is gearing up for the third year in a row to offer the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) to connect current students and recent graduates with disabilities to employers nationwide for paid summer internships and full-time job opportunities.

The WRP provides students and recent graduates with disabilities in all fields of study the opportunity to market their abilities to a wide variety of potential employers across the United States, sharpen their interviewing skills during a required phone interview with a WRP recruiter, and gain valuable skills, experience, and contacts on the job.

To participate in the program, you must:

  • Be a United States Citizen (Veterans are strongly desired)
  • Have an intellectual disability, a severe physical disability, or a psychiatric disability making you eligible to use the Schedule A hiring authority
  • Be a current, full-time, degree-seeking student unless you are taking a reduced course load due to a disability or are in your final term OR
  • Have graduated after April 2014

The WRP is run on an annual basis and requires student applicants to participate in a remote interview with one of their recruiters.  Registration will begin August 24 and run through October 19.  The interviews will begin October 27th.  Space is limited, so apply early.
