Workforce Recruitment Program
What Does the Program Offer to Recruiters?
The time of year has come again when we are looking for recruiters for the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP). Please see the documents below for additional details about the WRP.
Potential recruiters must be at a grade level equivalent to a GS-09 level or above, have been employed by the federal government for at least two years, and have good written and oral communication skills and organizational abilities. All recruiters will be required to complete a series of online training modules in the month of June, and must commit to taking a week-long recruiting trip to conduct interviews on college campuses this fall (October 8 through November 16, 2012). All travel costs will be paid by the recruiter's agency.
Those interested in being a WRP recruiter can begin by filling out the Recruiter Registration form online at https://wrp.gov/registerrecruiter starting on May 14th. The deadline is June 29, 2012. Please send any questions to Sara Mahoney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please distribute this information far and wide to anyone who may be interested in being a recruiter for the WRP this year. We are particularly interested in increasing our recruiter participation from those in the field and in regional offices around the country. We are thankful for the over 100 participating recruiters to cover the trips from last year and we are going to need just as many, if not more, this coming recruitment season.
We would also like to know whether or not recruiters have the capability to conduct interviews via Skype or Video Teleconferencing (VTC). We will be asking for this information later on in the registration process. We used this interviewing style on a limited basis last year and we want to know the ability of the recruiters in case this option will be needed.
