It’s student and recent graduate application season for the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP)! We need your help to spread the word to college students, graduate students, and recent graduates with disabilities before our registration deadline on October 13th.
The WRP is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and select private-sector employers nationwide with college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through internships or permanent jobs.
Current, degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate students with disabilities, and recent graduates with disabilities who received a postsecondary degree on or after April 1, 2020 from a U.S. accredited college or university, are eligible to apply. Candidates must be U.S. citizens who are eligible for the federal Schedule A Hiring Authority.
Students and recent grads with disabilities can register and apply today at WRP.gov!
Registration closes October 13, 2022.
There is a two-step registration process before starting the application, so please encourage eligible candidates to click Students Register Now this week or as soon as possible. Check out our WRP success stories and see the attached flyer for more information!
Please share this opportunity with higher education students and recent graduates with disabilities. Applicants that apply this week will be part of the 2023 database that will be
available to federal employers starting in December 2022. If you need additional outreach materials or have any questions, please email WRP staff at email@example.com.
