Students and recent grads: Enroll in Western's Workforce Recruitment Program
Western invites students and recent graduates to enroll in the 2020-2021 Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP).
The WRP is a recruitment and referral program that connects students with disabilities to an opportunity for employment. Through participating colleges and universities, WRP creates a database for federal and select private-sector employers nationwide to find highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs. Candidates represent all majors, and range from college freshmen to graduate students and law students. Information from these candidates is compiled in a searchable database that is available through the WRP website to federal Human Resources Specialists, Equal Employment Opportunity Specialists, and other federal employees and hiring officials in federal agencies.
The Workforce Recruitment Program has been made available to qualifying Western students and alumni through the collaboration and partnership of the Disability Access Center, the Career Services Center and the Office of Civil Rights and Title IX Compliance.
To be eligible to register, candidates must be current, full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate students with a disability, or have graduated within two and a half years of the release of the database each December.
