Career Paths and Families

Welcome to the State of Minnesota career paths and families. Every class title in the executive branch is assigned to one of 11 broad career paths. These paths are further divided into 37 "career families" or clusters of related areas of work. For example, accounting, auditing and financial jobs are clustered within in the same career family.

The families are further sorted into career series within each family. The series include groups of job class titles that form logical career paths across bargaining units and plans.

Job classification specifications are available on the MMB website and provide a general description of work performed within a job class. The posted class specs are the most current version available, and are updated by staff as time permits.

The information below is for reference purposes. It provides the definitions of the related career families within each career path.
