Since 1995, the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) has connected thousands of students with disabilities to federal and select private-sector job opportunities by working with more than 400 colleges and universities each year. There is no charge to participate. Managed by the U.S. Department of Labor and the Department of Defense, the WRP helps students with disabilities hone their resume-writing skills, engage in a one-on-one informational interview with a federal recruiter, and make their application and resume available for one year to more than 4,000 federal employers nationwide.
Every fall semester, Disability Services (DS) partners with the BSU Career Center to assist students who are interested in participating in the WRP. Students registered with DS should look for emails and advertisements each September and October. Feel free to contact the DS office directly with any questions about WRP.
The Career Center is also a great resource to utilize while enrolled at Ball State. Whether it's for on campus employment postings, career coaching, resume and interviewing assistance, or career fairs and networking, staff in the Career Center are ready to help BSU students and alumni meet their goals.
