Registration Open for Workforce Recruitment Program

| August 29, 2014

The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal employers nationwide with highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs. During the Fall 2014 semester, trained WRP recruiters will conduct personal interviews with interested candidates at college and university campuses across the country, including Webster University. Candidates represent all majors, and range from college freshmen to graduate students. Information from these candidate interviews is compiled in a searchable database that is available to federal agencies and private sector contractors. Veterans with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

To qualify, a candidate must:
  • Be a United States citizen.
  • Be a current, degree-seeking, full-time post-secondary student. Candidates who fall under the following exceptions may still be eligible:
    • Be taking a reduced course load due to disability.
    • Be taking a reduced course load due to upcoming graduation.
    • Have graduated from Webster between October 2013 and August 2014.
  • Have an intellectual disability, psychiatric disability, or severe physical disability enabling the candidate to obtain a Schedule A letter from a licensed medical professional, a licensed rehab professional, or any federal/state agency or entity that issues or provides disability benefits.

If candidates meet the above qualifications and are interested in interviewing for employment through WRP, registration can be completed at https://wrp.gov/registerstudent.

To complete registration, candidates will need:
  • Resume
  • College transcript (official or unofficial)
  • Schedule A letter
  • Additional supporting documents (optional)

Registration is open between Tuesday, Aug. 26 and Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014. Phone interviews will be conducted by WRP recruiters between late October and mid-November. Candidate information will be loaded into the employment database in December 2014 and will remain active for one year.
