Office of Veteran Employment Services Programs
It is the goal of Governor's Council on Veterans Employment to increase the number of qualified veterans employed in state service.
The Wisconsin State Government has special hiring tools in place to help ensure that all qualified veterans have a greater chance of being considered and interviewed for state jobs. In addition, qualified veterans may be considered for state agency jobs without having to compete or take a civil service assessment, if you are a veteran who: has served in the armed forces, have a disability rating of 30% or more, and are not currently employed in a permanent position or have restoration rights with the Wisconsin State Government. Complete these steps in order to determine your eligibility:
- Register or update you profile on JobCenterofWisconsin.com
- Select "My Account" and upload your DD214/DD215 and VA-issued disability rating letter (letter must be dated within 12 months and letter must state 30% or more disability rating)
- Select "Update Military Service Info" to ensure your veteran information is up to date
- You will be contacted by email regarding your eligibility and provided information on the next steps

The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) are proud to offer the Wisconsin Veteran Employment Grant Program to encourage Wisconsin employers to hire and retain eligible Veterans.
Registered apprenticeships constitute qualified training for a Veteran to receive benefits under Chapter 30, Montgomery GI Bill and Chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation (Voc-Rehab). Depending on your branch of service, survivors may be eligible under Chapter 35, Survivors or Dependents programs.
