Most permanent Classified positions at UWSP require an application and an examination to measure your qualifications. Depending on the type of job, the exam may be a written multiple choice Civil Service exam, a rating of training and experience (Objective Inventory Questionnaire), a performance test, or some combination of these or other types of exams. Application requirements vary for different jobs. Each job listed in the WiscJobs Bulletin includes specific application instructions.

Civil Service Exams
For jobs requiring a multiple choice exam, report to an exam location on the date listed in the WiscJobs Bulletin. The exams are held on the 2nd Saturday of each month, beginning at 8:30 a.m. There is no charge to take an exam. You may take more than one exam, but you must complete all exams in the allotted four hours. Pre-registration is required to take the exams. You can register at wisc.jobs or by calling 608-266-1536.
The exam centers closest to Stevens Point are at the Wausau Technical College and the Wisconsin Rapids Technical College.
Examinations may be given on a statewide basis or for a specific geographic area. Each announcement in the WiscJobs Bulletin lists the areas where vacancies are anticipated. Statewide exams create registers that will be used to fill vacancies throughout the state for the six to twelve months following the exam. You will only be considered for jobs in the locations where you state you will work (question #15 on the application.) Do not write in an area unless you are sure you will accept a job there.
You will receive a Notice of Examination Results several weeks after your exam. For each classification, a list of applicants who pass the exam and are eligible to be interviewed will be created. Only applicants who score the highest may be interviewed or receive further consideration.
Your exam score is valid for six months from the date of your exam. You may take the exam when it is offered again after six months. If the same exam is offered within six months from your last exam date, you cannot take the exam. If this happens, however, you can request to reuse your original score for six more months. If you reuse your score, it will be valid for six months from the register date listed on the new Notice that you will receive several weeks after your request. This notice will show your reused score along with your current rank on the employment list. To request reuse of a score, send in a completed "Application for State Employment" with the REUSE box checked (top right hand corner.)
The WiscJobs Bulletin, is published approximately 34 times per year and lists all job openings in Wisconsin State Government and in some local governments. It also lists the scheduled State Civil Service examinations, as well as the procedures for applying to take examinations.
