Federal agencies release database to increase recruitment of workers with disabilities

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense, made available the 2011 Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities database. This resource is intended to assist federal and private-sector employers in hiring workers with disabilities. The more than, 2,200 candidates in this year’s database represent all academic backgrounds and are working toward, or recently earned, associate, bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral and law degrees. Federal officials can visit http://www.wrp.gov to register and search independently for candidates who meet their hiring needs. Private-sector employers can search the program’s database through ODEP’s National Employer Assistance and Resource Network by making a toll-free telephone call to 866-327-6669 or filling out a request form at http://www.earnworks.com
