Workforce Recruitment Program

The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) aims to provide summer work experience, and in some cases full-time employment, for college students with disabilities. The program develops partnerships with other Federal agencies, each of whom makes a commitment to provide summer jobs and a staff recruiter. Each year, recruiters interview more than 1,500 students with disabilities at college and university campuses across the nation, and develop a database listing the qualifications of each student. Interviews are arranged from November to January.

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) manage the program. College career counselors or disability student services providers who would like to schedule a recruitment trip to their campuses can contact wrp@dol.gov.
