Career Paths

Career paths are informational tools useful for both job seekers and employees in considering how to progress in their career, either by moving into a lateral position or into a position of more responsibility.
Career paths provide information on education and experience requirements of classifications utilized throughout the City, which can be used by employees and supervisors to define career development opportunities. Career paths can also be utilitzed to develop succession plans for key positions within a department or agency.
The Career Paths are organized by job families within an occupational group and by specific department and agency structures. A job family is a group of jobs involving work of the same nature but requiring different skill and responsibility levels. There are three components to career paths: Career Progression Charts, Work Group Examples, and Classification Summaries.
