Are you a junior, senior, or recent graduate looking to work within the federal government? The Workforce Recruitment Program is taking applications for students who have disabilities for summer 2022 internships. This is a great way to gain work experience, earn a reasonable salary, and network within the federal government system for future full-time work. There are over 600 employers registered within the Workforce Recruitment System including National Parks, NASA, the Department of Labor, the Department of Defense, the Department of Health and Human Services, and many more. There are opportunities for any major!
Contact your SAAS coordinator to learn more at AbleISU@IllinoisState.edu and go to the Workforce Recruitment Program website. Students that apply must be a US citizen, have a documented disability, and be currently enrolled in a full-time degree program or have graduated after April 2019. Applications are due by Monday, October 11, 2021.
