Thank you for your interest in this position. In order to be considered for this position you must complete the following four (4) questions, which are considered an examination.
Though you will submit a resume, the exam raters will not be given a copy of your resume and will evaluate your exam based only on your responses. Please limit your response to each question to no more than the equivalent of two (2) pages of double-spaced text. Pages in excess of the specified limit will not be evaluated and incomplete application/examination materials will NOT be considered. We suggest that you prepare your response in a word processing document first to ensure your response does not exceed the specified page limit and to ensure it is not lost in the event of a WiscJobs system time-out. Use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V to copy and past your responses. When you are finished with each page of the exam, click the "Save and Continue" button (bottom of the screen) to save your answers. When you are finished with the exam, click the "Save and Finalize" button and at the exam summary window click the "Finalize" button. If you return later to update your exam, you must "Finalize" again or your exam may not be considered.
