Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP)

Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP) 

WRP information for JSU Students

How the Program Works:

  • Career Services confirms and helps eligible candidates apply and prepare for interviews (students & recent graduates are highly encouraged to go to Career Services for resume review and mock interview prep sessions
  • Trained recruiters from participating agencies visit campuses and interview candidates in Oct-Nov timeframe
  • For those candidates determined by the recruiter to be eligible for the program (All candidates must complete their applications prior to their interview date and an interview scheduled with the campus coordinator), candidate information will be made available in the database
  • Database is opened to all agencies and private employers nationwide each December
  • Agencies directly hire candidates for summer, temporary, or permanent positions
  • Private companies work through DOL's contractor, EARN, to select candidates
  • Recruiters interview candidates and give them a rating of 1-5 on:  Qualifications, Maturity, Communication,  Direction, Overall Rating
  • Candidates must receive a rating of 3.0 or better on the overall rating to be entered in the database, but may receive a rating lower than 3.0 on the other criteria
  • Interview notes summarizing recruiter's assessment are provided in database for employers to review
  • The resume and transcript you unload with your application will become a part of the database and will be visible to employers

The Job Application Process (for eligible students and recent graduates)

Step 1:  Candidates must register with the school in which they are interviewing (registration opens August 27 2018), apply online and complete an online application prior to interviewing - interviews will be in the Fall 2018
Step 2:  Once JSU's Campus Coordinator approves the candidate, the candidate will then get an automatically generated email from info@wrp.gov with their username (email address) and password to log into the WRP site www.wrp.gov
Step 3:  From here, the candidates will have the ability to complete the entire online application.  Required information on the application is: identification and contact information (SSN), Resume, Transcript (official or unofficial), Academic Information including major, degree, GPA, number of credit hours, credit type, etc., Disability category (for statistical purposes only, not shown to employers), (Optional) supporting documents, such as letters of recommendation, writing samples, and Schedule A Certification letter.  (Additional documents must be uploaded on the Manage Documents Page of the online application as recruiters will not accept documents to be uploaded or updated during the interview)
