DOL Database Lists 2,000 Job Candidates with Disabilities

The U.S. Department of Labor said employers nationwide can use a free database of about 2,000 new job candidates with disabilities who seek work in various fields. For the first time, federal employers now can tap into this ongoing recruitment resource online at www.WRP.gov; private-sector and other government employers can request unlimited searches by calling (866) 327-6669.

"American employers often express that while they want to include people with disabilities in their recruitment efforts, they do not know where to find qualified candidates," said W. Roy Grizzard, assistant secretary of labor for disability employment policy. "The Workforce Recruitment Program [for College Students with Disabilities] bridges this divide by bringing pre-screened job seekers with varied education and experience directly to employers."

The program is co-sponsored by the Labor Department's Office of Disability Employment Policy and the U.S. Department of Defense. The database was compiled by sending recruiters to more than 250 college campuses to interview eligible undergraduate and post-graduate students. Employer set the criteria for each candidate search by specifying location, degree program, position type, and length of appointment.
