Geographic Areas: Wisconsin is divided into 31 geographic areas for recruitment purposes. UW-Parkside is in the Kenosha/Racine area (employment area #1). You must check area #1 on the Application for State Employment form to be considered for a vacancy at UW-Parkside. Check as many areas of the state as you wish, as long as you are willing to accept employment in those areas. UW-Parkside jobs which are advertised in the Wisconsin State Current Employment Opportunities Bulletin will carry the designation "Kenosha/Racine" or "Statewide" after the classification title - for example, "Maintenance Mechanic 2 - Kenosha/Racine".
WiscJobs--State of Wisconsin Job Opportunities: This bulletin lists job openings in Wisconsin State Government and in some local governments. Each issue lists different vacancies. The bulletin is posted at Wisconsin Job Service offices, state and county personnel offices, college placement offices, over 100 public libraries, and many city personnel offices and community-based organizations. It is published approximately 34 Mondays each year.

Civil Service Exams: Walk-in examinations are given on a Statewide basis or for a specific geographic area. Statewide tests are given for classifications widely used in state service. Test results are used to establish registers used by all state agencies for the next 6 to 12 months to fill vacancies in the particular classification being tested. Geographic area tests are used for specific vacancies at a particular location, and the test results will be used to fill that vacancy. If another vacancy occurs in the same classification in the same geographic area within six months, that register will typically be reused.
Examinations are given on Saturdays in regional testing centers throughout the State. Gateway Technical College, Kenosha is usually the closest test center for Kenosha and Racine area applicants.
Note: Effective with the June 10, 2000 test center, calculators are allowed on all exams unless specifically excluded in the job announcement or on the cover of the exam.
Application Forms: If you are interested in testing for positions listed in the Current Employment Opportunities Bulletin, you must bring the Application for State Employment form (DER-MRS-38, 5/88), with you to the test site. The application is also available at Job Service Offices and at the UW-Parkside Human Resources Office.
