Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP)

Registration for 2021 is now open!

Are you interested in working in the federal government for the summer or after you graduate? If so, Disability Resources and Services would like to tell you about a great opportunity for CU Denver students.

The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP), coordinated by the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Defense, is a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and select private-sector employers with highly motivated college students, graduate students, and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through paid summer internships and permanent jobs.

Visit Workforce Recruitment Program for more information, or connect with the DRS point of contact, Madison Overbey, for questions at: madison.overbey@ucdenver.edu.

The CU Denver Career Center will assist students and recent graduates with their resumes and with practicing interview skills. Contact their office at 303-315-4000 or CareerCenter@ucdenver.edu and ask for Mr. Nick Shaklee or Ms. Emily Farrer for more information or to set up an appointment.
