Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply on-line and take an on-line exam?

Some job announcements allow applicants to apply on-line.  Read the "How to Apply" section of the announcement carefully to find out if this is an option for the job you are interested in.


Applying on-line in a six step process:


Step 1: Create an account or enable your existing account if you have applied for State jobs in the past (If you already have an account, you should log in to the system and skip to Step 2). 


Step 2: Search for the job announcement and click on the title.  Preview and print the exam so that you can prepare your responses to the exam.  When completed, return to apply after your responses have been prepared.


Step 3:  Search for the job announcement, click on the title and click the “Apply Now” button at the top or bottom of the screen. 


Step 4:  Complete the Job Application screen and click "Continue."


Step 5:  Complete the Job Preferences screen and click “Continue.”  You will be taken directly into the exam.


Step 6:  Copy your answers into the exam and click “Save and Continue” at the bottom of every page.  On the last page of the exam, click “Finalize Exam”.  For more information regarding this recruitment, please return to the Application Status page from your job cart at a later time.


NOTE:  If you do not click Save and Continue on each page or click Save and Continue within 20 minutes, Wisc.Jobs will time out and your answers will be lost.   If the questions require written responses, we encourage you to prepare your answers in a Word document and then copy and paste.  This will speed up your time in the exam and prevent lost answers. 


You will need to complete the exam by the deadline date listed at the top of the job announcement.  If you have any questions or are having any problems with the exam, please call the HR Contact in the job announcement.  Your responses are considered an examination and will be used to determine the eligibility for this vacancy.  Those most qualified will be invited to participate in the next step of the selection process.
