The Workforce Recruitment Program  connects college students and recent graduates with disabilities to employers across the nation for summer internships and full-time jobs. Check out www.wrp.gov to learn more.

A WRP Recruiter will be interviewing candidates from UMass Boston during October.  Candidates will need to pre-register beginning on August 19 and will need complete an online application prior to September 30 in order to participate. 

To qualify, an eligible candidate:

  • Must have an intellectual disability, severe physical disability, or psychiatric disability which makes the candidate eligible to use the Schedule A hiring authority (see explanation in the Schedule A Checklist for Candidates)
  • Must be a United States citizen
  • Must be a current, full-time, degree-seeking, post-secondary student, unless they are taking a reduced course load due to a disability OR are in their final semester.

* Individuals who met the preceding requirements while enrolled, but have graduated within one year of the release of the database each December, are   also eligible.  For the 2014 WRP release, interviews will be held in the fall of 2013. Candidates who graduated prior to October, 2012, are NOT eligible to participate this year.
