The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy and the U.S. Department of Defense’s Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity recently launched the 2013 Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) database.
The database contains nearly 3,000 profiles of postsecondary students and recent graduates with disabilities, including veterans. According to a press release announcing the launch, the candidates have been interviewed and pre-screened by federal recruiters.
Private sector employers can access the WRP through ODEP’s national Employer Assistance and Resource Network’s website or by making a toll-free call to 855-275-3276.
