Wisconsin Launches New Job Search Tool

The Department of Workforce Development’s (DWD) newest tool for job-seekers, Skill Explorer, allows Wisconsin workers to easily search for employment opportunities that match their existing skills and training.


Workers can search for new career opportunities on the Skill Explorer website by typing in their past or current job title. Skill Explorer will provide a list of current openings relating to the work experience of that job through openings on the Jobs Center of Wisconsin. The website will also provide overviews explaining what each specific job entails, how much workers typically make in that position, and any special training or background needed for the occupation. Skill Explorer’s mapping function will show hot spots in the state for particular occupations, as well as allow individuals to search for current openings by county.
