Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Apply Online and Take an Online Assessment?

Most job announcements require applicants to apply online. Read the "How to Apply" section of the announcement carefully to find out if this is an option to submit your application online.


Steps to apply online:


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 Wisc.Jobs and skip to Step 2. 


Step 2: Search for the job announcement and click on the title.  If you are required to respond to items in order to apply, preview and print the assessment to prepare your responses.  When completed, return to apply after your responses are ready.


Step 3:  Search for the job announcement, click 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 Documents screen.


Step 6: Upload the required documents to apply for this position. If you do not have a resume, click on “Resume Builder” to enter your work history. If further documents beyond a resume are required to apply they will be listed in the “How to Apply” section of the job announcement. Once you have attached all required documents, click “Continue.”


Step 7:  If the job announcement requires you to respond to items, the next page will be instructions on how to submit your responses. Once you have read the instructions, select “Save & Continue”. Copy your response into the assessment for each item and click “Save & Continue” at the bottom of every page. On the last page of the assessment, click “Save & Finalize”. The final assessment page will show you your total number of items answered and items not answered. Select “Finalize” once you have answered all of the items.


Step 8: Your Application Status page will show if any required portion of the application is complete or incomplete, and will show what application materials you have attached to your application. 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 items 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 assessment and prevent lost answers. 


You will need to submit all required materials by the deadline date listed at the top of the job announcement. If you have any questions or are having any problems with the assessment, please call or email the HR Contact in the job announcement. Your responses 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.
