For college students and recent graduates, internships offer a way to gain skills and learn about their employment options through first-hand experience. And, the benefits of internships don’t stop there. They also offer employers an easy and effective way to evaluate potential employees and cultivate a pipeline of talent for the future. Furthermore, by targeting specific populations—such as people with disabilities—internships can assist in achieving workforce diversity goals, including those established under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act.

This webinar will address the benefits of hiring interns with disabilities and how employers can take advantage of the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP)—a free referral service—to connect with them.
