Welcome to the newest, online career-planning resource! The Job Family System is a useful career-planning guide, identifying possible entry, promotional, and lateral transfer career paths within City employment. This system groups related active City classes into “job families” and reflects the opportunities for movement between them. Please understand that this resource guide does not guarantee promotion. Human Resources has used this resource, originally developed in 1990, to ensure consistency in the job evaluation process and to assist in developing and revising class specifications or job descriptions. Due to the frequency of job classes being merged, abolished, created, and revised, this online tool will be updated on a regular basis. The job family charts are subject to change without notice. Please direct any questions you have to the HR Consulting Services section of Human Resources by calling 651-266-6481.
