Our team in Wisconsin is interested in how other states recruit and evaluate entry level accountants and auditors, and your corresponding minimum qualifications/requirements.
Wisconsin currently recruits for entry level accountants and auditors through a continuous recruitment to develop a register of entry-level accounts available to fill various positions as needed throughout state government. Here is a link to the employment announcement http://wisc.jobs/public/job_view.asp?annoid=40868&jobid=40383&index=true.
To apply, applicants must complete a self-identification survey which outlines their qualifications. To meet the minimum qualifications, applicants must indicate their academic preparation, experience or training described in at least one of the 4 items listed on the examination/application packet linked here http://oser.state.wi.us/docview.asp?docid=1450
We appreciate the sharing of your current practices or techniques used, and any insights into associated successes or failures as well.

Thank you!
