Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP)

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.

Registration for 2020 is now closed.
