Welcome to the Wisconsin Employment Resource Connection!
The Wisconsin Employment Resource Connection (WERC) is an employment partnership program designed to provide relevant and timely workforce training and job-placement assistance to Wisconsin military Service Members and their spouses. The program's specialized education, training, and job-search services will enhance each participant's abilities to obtain and retain meaningful employment.
Employment Assistance: Our WERC Team offers one-on-one career and employment counseling. We help participants identify aptitudes and abilities developed in the military, arrive at a plan for transferring them to a civilian job setting, and assist program participants in understanding and mastering key job-search resources and services for optimal job placement. WERC also provides assistance with resume and cover letter creation/review; application assistance; mock interviews; education options; employer connections; job searching tools; and weekly job blasts.
Registration: To register with the WERC program and receive employment assistance, please email our case manager, Casey Kautzmann, at email@example.com and 'cc' the program manager, Alex Hughes: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Job Openings: If you are interested in being included on our email distribution list to receive the weekly job blasts, information about our networking/upcoming events, or are simply looing for a way to connect to the job market, please register with WERC by emailing our case manager, Casey Kautzmann, at email@example.com. Please indicate that you wish to be added to the distribution list.
Partnerships: WERC bridges the gap between qualified Service Members and spouses with employers through the analysis of Service Member and employer needs. WERC recognizes that state and local agencies are working initiatives to build a robust workforce and we realize that no single agency or organization will achieve this goal on its own. WERC's intention is to partner with state and local agencies, such as the Department of Workforce Development and the Department of Veterans Affairs to serve as a complementary resource for Wisconsin military Service Members and spouses. If you are an employer, or part of an organization looking to partner with WERC, please email our program manager, Alex Hughes, at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information about becoming an Employer Partner. We look forward to working with you!
While the WERC Team currently operates out of Madison, we provide employment assistance throughout the state. Please do not hesitate to reach out!
