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.
About the Workforce Recruitment Program
The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP) is a free resource through which private businesses and federal agencies nationwide can identify qualified temporary and permanent candidates from a variety of professional fields. WRP.jobs is a pilot project which allows private sector employers to post jobs that can be seen and accessed only by pre-screened WRP candidates. Applicants are highly motivated postsecondary students and recent graduates eager to prove their abilities in the workforce.
Through the WRP employers have:
- Access to candidates across the nation
- Ability to source candidates who are veterans
- Job candidates pre-screened
- Flexibility in hiring for summer internships or permanent positions
Recruiting WRP Candidates through WRP.jobs
Private sector employers can post jobs and internships to WRP.jobs, a pilot project developed by EARN and Direct Employers, using any one of these methods:
- Register to post a job (FREE)
Register & Post Jobs to WRP.jobs
- Sign up to have your organization’s jobs automatically indexed and included on WRP.jobs (FREE)
WRP.jobs uses an "indexing" process to identify links to jobs on corporate websites. Jobseekers who select a job title on the search results page are taken directly to the job listing on the corporate website. This is essentially the same process that is used by all high-level Internet search engines.
When considering students for internships or permanent positions, employers should conduct the application and interview process according to their usual recruitment, hiring, and onboarding procedures. 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.
