About Us/Contact Us


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 participant’s abilities to obtain and retain meaningful employment.


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, 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 connection; job searching tools; and weekly job blasts.


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 Dept. of Workforce Development and Dept. of Veterans Affairs to serve as a complimentary 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, SSG Alex Hughes, at alexandria.p.hughes.mil@mail.mil for more information about becoming an Employer Partner. We look forward to working with you!
