Are you interested in working in the government for the summer or after you graduate? If so, please read below to learn about the Workforce Recruitment Program!
Workforce Recruitment Program
The Workforce Recruitment Program 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.
Eligible students must:
- have a disability and be eligible under the Schedule A hiring authority
- be a United States citizen
- be currently enrolled in a degree program on a full-time basis (12 or more credits) OR have graduated with a degree on or after April 1, 2018.
Please note that candidates must reapply each program year to continue to participate.
If you are interested in applying to the program and interviewing with a representative from WRP, please visit www.wrp.gov and click on the student registration button to get started!
For more information or questions about WRP, please contact Kellen Story at Kellen.Story@Colorado.edu. Kellen is the Manager of Program Initiatives for Disability Services and is also a campus WRP Coordinator for CU Boulder, in connection with Career Services.
Registration will close October 11. All application materials must be uploaded to the WRP site by October 15 by 11:59pm PST. No late applications will be accepted. You will need time to get your registration approved by your Coordinator, gather your resume and transcript, and complete your application, so please don’t delay!
