Workforce Recruitment Program

Embry-Riddle expanded its partnership with the Workforce Recruitment Program to include the Daytona Beach, Prescott and Worldwide campus locations. Recognized by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) for its strategic model, WRP offers guidance and access to federal agencies in the recruitment and hiring of people with disabilities. Since the program's expansion in 1995, thousands of students and recent graduates have received temporary and permanent employment opportunities through the program. Student registration for the program is currently open until Oct. 11. To register, click WRP 2021 Registration or contact your Career Services Office for additional information.

WRP creates a database for federal and select private-sector employers nationwide for summer or permanent jobs. Information from these candidates is compiled in a searchable database and made available to Federal Human Resources Specialists, Equal Employment Opportunity Specialists, and other federal employees and hiring officials in federal agencies. To be eligible to apply for WRP in fall 2021, candidates must be a US citizen; a current full-time undergraduate or graduate students with a federal Schedule A Hiring Authority disability letter; or a recent graduate who received a postsecondary degree on or after April 1, 2019 from a U.S. accredited college or university.  

Agencies that hire from the WRP database change and vary from year to year, but have previously included: Departments of Defense, Labor, Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, State, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs; the Social Security Administration; the Federal Housing Finance Agency; the Nuclear Regulatory Commission; and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Candidates have worked in more than 38 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and as civilian employees on military bases in Germany, Italy, and South Korea.
