SAS and Career Services
Student Accessibility Services and Career Services are partners in promoting career readiness and diversity in hiring for students with disabilities. We encourage all UCF students to reach out to resources and opportunities available through Handshake.
Our mission is to promote disability hiring and workplace accommodations for students entering into the working world. To help with this transition, we have resources available below and are also able collaborate to assist with your career preparation.
Are you a student with a disability interested in a government internship or a long-term job after you graduate?
If so, consider participating in the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP), coordinated by the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Defense. It’s a recruitment and referral program that connects federal and select private-sector employers with highly motivated college students, graduate students and recent graduates with disabilities who are eager to demonstrate their abilities in the workplace through internships or permanent jobs. If interested, please visit WRP.gov for more information and register today
