To be eligible to apply for state employment opportunities through this program, applicants must be veterans with a service-connected disability rating of 30% or more. Current classified state employees in the Wisconsin State Civil Service are not eligible for this program. Please read the 'How to Apply' section of this job announcement carefully for additional instructions.
The State of Wisconsin salutes veterans and is grateful for their service to our country. We are committed to helping veterans find employment, and offer a special program for qualified veterans with a 30% or greater service-connected disability.
By applying to this announcement, your application materials will be reviewed for eligibility to be hired into state employment without competing with other applicants through traditional methods. Veterans’ resumes are reviewed for general qualification determinations and will be referred to hiring officials in state agencies. As vacancies occur, agencies may seek job matches between veteran qualifications and vacant positions. You apply here, and submit a resume listing your qualifications, along with the documents to determine eligibility, and we look for a job match for you within state government.
Veterans are also encouraged to take an active role in seeking jobs they are interested in and qualified for by reviewing the many job postings provided on Wisc.Jobs. If you meet the qualifications, as shown below, you can call the contact listed in each job announcement to inquire about special application/selection procedures which may be available.
All position types are open for qualified veterans to apply through this process. Job duties will vary depending on position obtained. Job categories will be used to match your qualifications and skillsets with potential positions. The list below is a sampling of occupational categories available in state service, that may match your qualifications.
Due to the nature of each position, agencies may conduct background checks on applicants prior to selection. All persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States, and to complete the required employment eligibility form.
To be eligible for noncompetitive appointment, the veteran candidate must:
1. Meet the definition of a 30% disabled veteran, as follows:
a. be included on a U.S. armed forces permanent disability list with a disability rating of at least 30 percent or b. have been rated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as having a compensable service-connected disability of at least 30 percent.
2. Provide written documentation from the appropriate federal government authority, such as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Army, Navy etc., certifying the existence and extent of the disability, and this certification must have been issued within the year preceding appointment.
3. Must not hold a permanent appointment or have mandatory restoration rights to a permanent appointment.
Technical knowledge, skills and abilities will vary depending on the position sought. Appointees must be qualified for each position.
