San Mateo County strongly encourages its employees to explore new careers that are of interest to them. We design job classifications that promote upward and lateral mobility and avoid “dead end” jobs. Whenever possible, job classifications are written to be generic versus specialty-specific to avoid silos; and when possible, job classifications are designed to include a series to ensure movement. 

This section contains guides that are intended to increase your knowledge of career movements in the County, such as this Job Ladder Guide

Stay tuned as we will be providing more content soon!
