NEW Office Support Exam and RE-TEST REQUIREMENT

Due to the postponement of the new University Personnel Structure(UPS), UW-System will use the Office of State Employment Relations (OSER) recruitment policies and procedures for all classified vacancies that occur in the next two years until UPS is implemented.  As part of this, all Office Support Positions must be certified from a central register housed by OSER. OSER has recently revised the Office Support Exam for all classification titles listed in the attached document. The first administration of this new exam will be on August 10, 2013.

Please note the following implications of this new Office Support Exam:

  • All previous exam scores will expire upon creation of the new Office Support exam register which is anticipated to be available for use in September.
  •  All applicants who have taken the Office Support exam in the last year must RE-TEST beginning in August 2013. Even if you have taken the exam as recently as June 2013, you must RE-TEST to continue to be considered for Office Support positions.

The Wisc.Jobs Home page will display a banner about the new exam and the Monthly State Exams page will be updated on July 19th with pre-registration information for the August 10, 2013 Multiple Choice Exams. This will also include information about the office support RE-TEST requirement.

Thank you for your interest in employment with the State of Wisconsin. Please help us spread the word about this re-test requirement and forward this information on to anyone you know that may be interested in an Office Support Position.

If you have any questions, please contact Christine Olson, or (920) 465-2846.
