CLASSIFIED EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Classified Job Announcements.Job announcements for classified positions are available on-line through
EDJOIN. Job seekers and employees are invited to review online job announcements and discuss employment or promotional possibilities with a staff member in Classified Personnel Services.
Classified Substitute Employment.Job seekers available for immediate employment are encouraged to consider employment as a classified substitute employee. Classified substitutes are continuously assigned to fill in for regular employees who are absent due to illness, vacation, or leave, or to temporarily fill newly established or recently vacated positions. While assignments for most classified substitutes change frequently, many substitutes are assigned to limited-term assignments of up to three months.
The selection process for classified positions begins with the job announcement. The job announcement (known as "Classified Employment Opportunity") describes the position(s) according to the functions, responsibilities, typical duties, and salary assignment of the job classification. In addition, the announcement outlines the type of examination(s), the location and final filing and examination dates (if available), as well as required application materials (i.e., application, resume, supplemental questionnaire, etc.).
Classified positions are announced according to job classification and each position is opened individually for the filing of applications. In most cases, examinations for each position will be conducted separately; however, in some cases examinations may be administered simultaneously.
Online applications are accepted when a job announcement is posted. It is very important that you take the following steps when applying:
Classified Personnel Services will contact you within 10 business days regarding the status of your application. If you are notified that you qualify for the test, you should begin preparing for the examination.
Classified Personnel Services administers examinations, designed specifically for each job classification, which test the knowledge, ability and the skill levels required for successful job performance. Examinations may include one or more of the following components:
Reasonable accommodation will be made to facilitate the participation of disabled candidates in the examination process. If you qualify to take the examination, please notify staff member, noted in the job announcement, prior to the date of the examination of any special needs you may have. Call the Classified Personnel staff member or the Telecommunication device for the Deaf (TDD) at (415) 775-9484.
After you have successfully passed the examination(s), your name will be placed on the eligibility list for that particular job classification. This list is used to fill vacancies in the job classification for the specific period of time indicated on the list.
Depending on the classification, the eligibility list will remain on file and active for a period of six months or one year. Separate lists are established for each job classification or for positions in the same classification located at work sites throughout the county.
Candidates are placed (ranked) on an eligibility list, in descending order, according their final scores. Candidates with equal final scores (ties) are given the same rank.
Applicants and eligibility list participants are responsible for notifying Classified Personnel Services of any change in address or telephone by filing a CHANGE OF ADDRESS OR TELEPHONE form available from Classified Personnel Services.
When a vacancy occurs, the hiring department will request a list of candidates (eligibles) from Classified Personnel Services. At which time, Classified Personnel Services will forward the first three ranks of candidates to the hiring department for a final interview.
Upon receiving the list, the hiring department will contact the candidates on the list to schedule a final selection interview appointment. It is most important that candidates respond to the request for a interview even if they are no longer interested in, or available to consider employment. Unresponsive candidates may be eliminated from the eligibility list and, in addition, may damage their future possibilities for obtaining employment with the Office.
Those candidates that continue to be interested in employment are expected to arrive to their respective interview at the time (and date) scheduled. Please avoid canceling or rescheduling your interview.
The following suggestions are recommended to assist candidates in preparing for their interview:
