Did you know that if you are a veteran who has served in the armed forces, who has a service-connected disability rating of 30% or more, and are not currently employed in a permanent position with Wisconsin State Government, you may be considered for jobs in state agencies without having to compete or take a civil service assessment?

Before you apply to use this employment process, you must:

  1. Be a veteran with a 30% or greater service-connected disability (documentation must be within the last 12 months)
  2. Have a DD214
  3. Have been honorably discharged

Once you have determined that you are an eligible veteran to use this employment process, create an account at Wisc.​Jobs. Find the job announcement titled, Veterans Non-Competitive Appointment, and click Apply Now.

By applying to the announcement on Wisc.Jobs, 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.

Wisconsin State Government is committed to furthering the transition of veterans back to civilian life through gainful employment. We know that many of the skills you learned during your service will transfer to a variety of state jobs.
