Our Application Process

Have questions about our application process? Here is a list of frequently asked questions that will help address your concerns.

How do I apply?

You may apply online by clicking the “apply here” button in the job posting. You will be prompted to enter your name, phone number, and email address along with uploading a copy of your cover letter and resume.

Do I need a cover letter?

Yes, please submit a cover letter in addition to your resume. It gives us a better idea of who you are and why you are interested in working at The State Bar of Wisconsin. We will still review your resume even if a cover letter is not submitted, but a cover letter definitely helps us make more informed and thoughtful decisions on who to interview.

Should I provide references?

References are not required initially, but a list of relevant professional references will be required should you be selected for an interview.

What's next?

After you submit your resume and cover letter, we will contact you within two weeks of the closing date if you are selected for an interview. At that time, we will schedule a brief, 20-minute virtual interview where you will have an opportunity to discuss the opening and your qualifications with human resources. After that, we will pick the top candidates for an hour long interview with the hiring manager. Depending on the position, there may be additional steps but we try to keep it simple and straightforward.

Once a candidate has been selected for a position, they will be notified and a background check will be completed. In addition, we require all employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing. 

Once the position has been filled, all other candidates will be notified.

How do I know if the position I applied for is still open?

All available positions are posted on our website until they are filled. If a position isn’t listed on our career page, it is no longer available.

Will you keep my resume on file?

We will keep your resume on file for up to one year; however, we strongly encourage you to reapply for any new positions that suit your skills as they become available.
