How do I apply for a job at DOC?
You should visit WISCJobs and follow the How To Apply section in the Job Announcement. Applications for positions are only accepted during the time they are published on WISCJobs.
How will I know when a job is published that I have been waiting for?
You should create a Job Cart in WISCJobs, and set up E-Notify. You will get an automatic email every time a position is published that matches your criteria in E-Notify.
I haven't heard anything back about a position I applied for.
You should check your job cart in WISCJobs for your exam score and whether your name was added to the interview list (certification). If you already interviewed for a position and are wondering about the status, you can contact the employing unit's human resources office and ask about the status of the position.
