I am not familiar with Milwaukee, but I assume since you are applying, openings exist?
if you are applying, are you following up with phone calls to make sure your applications/resumes are being received by the right people? I would do some checking around. I have had it happen to me a couple times where they applications got "lost" in a pile of paperwork on someone's desk, or in the computer system.
ALWAYS follow up when you hear nothing on a job! And if by chance you get an interview, be sure and follow up IMMEDIATELY with a thank-you note directly addressed to the interviewer. GOOD LUCK.
