Subject: WORKFORCE RECRUITMENT PROGRAM: INTERNSHIPS/EMPLOYMENT WITH FEDERAL
AGENCIES

Description:
DEADLINE: October 17, 2016   APPLY TODAY!

The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities
(WRP) is a recruitment and referral program that connects public and private
sector employers nationwide with highly motivated postsecondary students and
recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in
the workplace through paid summer or permanent jobs.

The WRP provides students 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 one-on-one meeting with a WRP recruiter, and gain valuable skills,
experience, and contacts on the job.

Applicants for the program must:
-          have a disability AND
-          be a U.S. citizen AND
-          be enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education on a
substantially full-time basis (unless the severity of the disability
precludes the student from taking a substantially full-time load) to seek a
degree OR
-          be enrolled in such an institution as a degree-seeking student
taking less than a substantially full-time load in the enrollment period
immediately prior to graduation OR
-          have graduated from such an institution within the past year.

The WRP is run on an annual basis and requires student applicants to have a
remote interview with one of our recruiters.  The interviews take place
during the fall semester of each year.  The WRP is coordinated on college
campuses by

The WRP is co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of
Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the U.S. Department of Defense’s
Office of Diversity Management & Equal Opportunity (ODMEO), with support from
other federal agencies.
