The 2019 Workforce Recruitment Program Database is Now Available!


Do you need highly qualified candidates for jobs at your agency? The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) can help!

The WRP is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and private sector employers nationwide with highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities. These students and recent graduates are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace during the summer positions or in permanent jobs.

Annually, trained WRP recruiters from federal agencies conduct personal interviews with interested candidates on college and university campuses across the country. To be eligible for the WRP, candidates must have a disability and must be current full-time undergraduate or graduate students, or have graduated within one year of the release of the database each December. Candidates represent all majors, and range from college freshmen to graduate students and law students. Information from these candidate interviews is compiled in a searchable database that is available through this website to federal Human Resources Specialists, Equal Employment Opportunity Specialists, and other hiring officials in federal agencies. offers non-federal employers the opportunity to post permanent and temporary positions. Qualified students with disabilities from WRP can then search and apply for these positions using employers’ standard application processes.

Over 7,000 students and recent graduates have received temporary and permanent employment opportunities through the WRP.

WRP is managed 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).Want to learn more about WRP? Visit or
