The "I Am the Workforce" Photo Project selected six remarkable federal employees who found their path to government service through the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP). According to Assistant Secretary Kathy Martinez, "These workers are incredible. The energy and talent that each offers is an asset to their employers. The WRP database represents more than 2,700 students and recent graduates with disabilities, including veterans, that possess the critical skill sets our country needs." These six success stories illustrate the broad cross section of skills and talents available to employers who choose to hire through WRP.
