Letter of Qualifications and Resume Tips


Thank you for your interest in working for the Wisconsin Department of Justice. The application process for the State of Wisconsin requires applicants to upload a resume. You may also be required to provide a letter of qualifications addressing the specific criteria listed in the job announcement. These two documents are reviewed by subject matter experts to identify the relevant qualifications for the vacancy DOJ is recruiting for.

Each time you apply for a job; you should update and tailor your resume and letter of qualifications. Candidates should clearly describe their education, training, and experience related to the items listed in the “Qualifications” section and “Preview Assessment” of the job announcement. These qualifications should be addressed in your resume and expanded upon in your letter of qualifications. This will allow a fuller assessment regarding your qualifications and those required for the job applying for.

Your resume should include the following:

·         Your educational background including any course work that relates to the position in which you are applying.

·         Your employment history, including experiences and/or duties and a summary of accomplishments and skills learned or used.

·         Any training or experience, including volunteer work or internships, you have related specifically to the “Qualifications” section of the assessment.

·         Spell out any acronyms and/or abbreviations the first time used.

Your letter of qualifications should include:

·         Additional information regarding your past work experience, including volunteer work and internships, or coursework you have taken.

·         Highlights of your most relevant skills and experiences as they related to the specific job you are applying for.

·         Specific examples that clearly demonstrates your level of expertise.

Other important information:

It is important to review the job announcement and identify any page limits for your resume and/or letter of qualifications. Please note there is a difference between a resume and curriculum vitae. Many times, a curriculum vitae does not meet the page limits and may not clearly identify the qualifications listed in the job announcement.

What not to include in your resume or letter of qualifications:

Your application materials should not include any information that is not job-related. This includes race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, creed, disability or genetic information. Further, do not include any self-identifying information such as photos, social security numbers, political affiliation, citizen status or conviction records. References will be requested from top candidates once interviews have taken place. 

We appreciate the time and effort it takes to apply for positions. If any questions arise, please contact the Human Resource Specialist listed on the job announcement.
