Job and Pay System
State Job Classification System
In collaboration with agencies,
job descriptions are established on an enterprise level. The state job classification system is grouped into 17 occupational families and is used to classify agency positions into appropriate jobs. Position specific information is maintained at an agency level as represented in the employee's position description &/or performance plan.
Job descriptions are composed of 4 major components: Job Summary, Job Responsibilities, Entry Qualifications, and Competencies.
A short statement that summarizes the most important features of a job, including the general nature of the work performed (duties and responsibilities) and level (e.g. skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions) of the work performed. The summary and description are written broadly enough to represent the functionality across multiple state agencies.
One or a group of duties that identifies the major purpose or reason for the existence of the job. Typically 70% of the position responsibilities should be represented in the job. Additional responsibilities and expectations should be maintained at the position level.
Minimum education and/or experience needed to enter the job. Entry qualifications are established on a state level. For recruitment purposes, agencies may add position level criteria such as specific degrees and/or Preferred Qualifications necessary to meet organizational needs.
Describe the knowledge, skills, abilities, attributes, or other characteristics that contribute to successful job performance.
