Workforce Recruitment Program database lists thousands of candidates for federal and private-sector employers.
A database of almost 3,000 ready-for-hire candidates with disabilities is now ready for employers.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity, has launched the 2013 Workforce Recruitment Program database, a recruitment resource for employers seeking a diverse work force that includes employees with disabilities.
The database contains profiles of postsecondary students and recent graduates with disabilities, including veterans, representing a wide variety of academic backgrounds and degree levels. Candidates who are seeking summer employment, as well as recent graduates looking for regular full-time positions, have been interviewed and prescreened by federal recruiters.
More than 20 federal government agencies regularly use the WRP as a recruiting source, with 6,500+ students obtaining federal employment since 1995. The WRP is a natural support to President Obama’s executive order titled Increasing Federal Employment of Individuals with Disabilities.
Federal employers can access the new database online at wrp.gov to register and begin their searches.
Private-sector employers can access the WRP through ODEP’s national Employer Assistance and Resource Network at 855-275-3276 or by visiting askearn.org.
