About WRP.jobs

About WRP.jobs

WRP.jobs is a collaboration between the Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN), the organization that administers the WRP program for non-federal positions, and DirectEmployers, a non-profit consortium of global employers.

WRP.jobs 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.

Please note that WRP.jobs is distinct from the WRP database used by federal employers to recruit WRP students. Students admitted to the WRP database also receive access to WRP.jobs, where they can search for opportunities in the private sector.

About the Workforce Recruitment Program

The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) is a recruitment and referral program that connects employers nationwide with highly motivated college students and recent graduates to internships or permanent jobs. Since the program's expansion in 1995, over 6,000 students and recent graduates have received temporary and permanent employment opportunities through the WRP.

To be eligible for the WRP, candidates must be current, full-time undergraduate or graduate students with a disability, or have graduated within one year of the release of the database each December. Interviews for WRP occur once per year – during October and November – and are managed by college campuses.
