Minimum Qualifications

Each job posting provides minimum qualifications as outlined to include experience and training guidelines and any additional professional certifications or licenses.

Credits earned from colleges, universities and institutions will be considered as part of the educational component of the minimum qualifications for a classification.

For many classifications, the City may allow the conversion of directly related work experience to substitute for a college degree.


Applicants will be assessed on the application materials submitted. Resumes are an important screening tool. Applications that are not accompanied by resumes may be more difficult to assess. Any applicant that completes a section of the application with "see resume" will be considered incompete and rejected.
