The WI-WIOA Career Interview Project is a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater's Center for Inclusive Transition, Education and Employment (CITEE) program and the Wisconsin Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) to provide services under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
UW-Whitewater has a contract with the Wisconsin DVR to provide interviews to all employees paid less than minimum wage. Interviews are scheduled according to the state fiscal year, July 1 - June 30 each year, in accordance with our contract with DVR. We may refer to this period as the interview cycle or interview year. The interviews are provided to help employers and employees comply with federal law. This is not research.
