The Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP) is a recruitment and referral program that connects public and private sector employers nationwide with highly motivated postsecondary students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to prove their abilities in the workplace through summer or permanent jobs.

The WRP provides students with disabilities in all fields of study the opportunity to market their abilities to a wide variety of potential employers across the United States, sharpen their interviewing skills during a required one-on-one meeting with a WRP recruiter, and gain valuable skills, experience, and contacts on the job.

Applicants for the program must:
- have a disability AND
- be a U.S. citizen AND
- be enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education on a substantially full-time basis (unless the severity of the disability precludes the student from taking a substantially full-time load) to seek a degree OR
- be enrolled in such an institution as a degree-seeking student taking less than a substantially full-time load in the enrollment period immediately prior to graduation OR
- have graduated from such an institution within the past year.

The WRP is run on an annual basis and requires student applicants to have an interview with one of our recruiters during an on-campus recruitment visit.

The interviews for summer and permanent positions will take place during at UMBC on September 30, 2010. Interested and eligible students will need to take the following steps:

1.) Upload your resume to your UMBCworks account (login via the Jobs & Internships Topic in myUMBC). After uploading, students must have their resume reviewed by a UMBC Career Specialist in the Career Services Center in Math/Psychology 212. Walk-in hours are M-F, 2-4pm.
2.) Schedule a time with a UMBC Career Specialist to practice interview techniques and self-advocacy skills. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 410.455.2216.

4.) We suggest you have someone in the UMBC Career Center carefully look over your application before you submit it. This will be competitive and your resume, application, and interview must be top notch.
5.) Apply in UMBCworks to this position: Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities – position i.d. number 9241253.

Interfolio: A Tool to Help Grad Students Throughout the Job Search

3 Ways Interfolio Can Help

*Build Your Dossier: You don't need to wait until you're on the job market to begin collecting confidential letters and other professional documents. Getting a head start while you're still working towards your degree can save tons of stress and headaches when you actually go on the market years later.

*Establish a Professional Identity: With the Interfolio Portfolio, you can immediately begin collecting examples of your work, reflecting on work and classroom experiences, and demonstrating teaching skills. You can do this all through an easy-to-use, online service that can be as private or as public as you want it to be. It's a resource you can begin maintaining as a graduate student and continue updating throughout your whole career, even after you've left campus.

*Efficiently Manage the Job Search: Graduate students continue to represent the highest percentage of Interfolio's membership. Aspiring job applicants across most of the humanities (English, History, Political Science, etc...) take advantage of Interfolio's dossier service to manage all documents for their search. Here is an article recently posted in the Chronicle of Higher Education about Interfolio's services.
