2012 Workforce Recruitment Program Student Database Launched

Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2012

The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities database now has information for employers on 2,700 job seekers, including 153 veterans with disabilities. On Tuesday, nearly 400 federal hiring managers, recruiters and HR specialists attended an event hosted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture designed to showcase the database. Among the speakers was Assistant Secretary of Labor for Disability Policy Kathy Martinez. "WRP provides a pipeline for agencies to bring people with disabilities on board both today and for years to come," said Martinez in a call-to-action, urging federal agencies to actively hire candidates from the database. A webinar for federal employers will be held on Feb. 28 from 1 - 2 p.m. EST.  Register for the Webinar at WRPmarketing@dol.gov.
