CityJobs
Most job openings with the City require the submittal of an online application through our CityJobs portal.  Here are a few things you should know:

  • CityJobs works best with Internet Explorer. Safari, Firefox and Chrome are compatible, however depending upon the version and configuration you might experience some issues.
  • Email is the default method of communication with applicants. To ensure that you receive timely notification regarding your application status, you must add your email address and telephone number in your CityJobs online application.  Providing them in an uploaded resume will not suffice. It is also recommended that you adjust any spam filters to ensure that you can receive emails from @sanjoseca.gov.
  • If your online application was successfully submitted, you will receive an automatic confirmation email to the email address you provided. If you do not receive the confirmation, please send an email and we will research the status of your application.
  • Please note the CityJobs application is routinely unavailable every Monday morning between 4:00 AM and 5:00 AM due to standard systems maintenance.

The Hiring Process
Once you've submitted your online application, please allow up to 3 weeks from the closing date of the job announcement for information regarding the status of your application.

As you may have experienced in your work group, when a higher classification job announcement is filled, a lower-level classification in the same job series may become vacant.  Read more about the City's innovative
Cascade Hiring process.

The City of San José is an equal opportunity employer. Applicants for all job openings will be considered without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status or any other consideration made unlawful under any federal, state or local laws.
