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 process used by federal sector employers who wish to recruit WRP students. If you are a federal employer interested in recruiting through WRP, please visit WRP.gov.

DirectEmployers and EARN provide the opportunity to match qualified pre-screened candidates with disabilities to jobs in the private sector. However, there is no post-employment support provided to the employer or the employee.
NOTE: Federal agency employers may search for WRP candidates directly via WRP.gov.
