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 ad 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.

Alternatively, you may mail your cover letter and resume to: Careers, State Bar of Wisconsin, PO Box 7158, Madison, WI 53707-7158.

Do I need a cover letter?

Yes, we request that you submit a cover letter in addition to your resume.

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 face-to-face interview where you will have an opportunity to meet the hiring manager. Depending on the position, there may be additional interviews.

Once a candidate has been selected for a position, s/he will be notified. 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 encourage you to reapply for any new positions that suit your skills as they become available.
