About the Company: The Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal sector employers nationwide with highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs. The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the U.S. Department of Defense's Office of Diversity Management & Equal Opportunity (ODMEO) manage the program, which continues to be successful with the participation of many other federal agencies and sub-agencies. Since the program's expansion in 1995, over 7,000 students and recent graduates have received temporary and permanent employment opportunities through the WRP. In the fall of 2011, 100 recruiters from over 40 federal agencies and sub-agencies visited over 270 college and university campuses nationwide, resulting in a database containing application information on more than 2,200 candidates with disabilities. The candidates represent all majors, and range from college freshmen to graduate students and law students. This database is currently available for use by federal employers. During the summer of 2011 over 580 candidates were reported as being hired, the majority in summer jobs, in 40 different agencies and sub-agencies.
