The Recruitment section is responsible for creating and advertising recruitments for current City of Miami job vacancies to the public and/or City of Miami employees. As well, Recruitment personnel are responsible for screening and determining applicant eligibility for advertised job vacancies according to the positions' advertised job requirements.

The Recruitment section also provides resume evaluation and career counseling. Our services are provided within the guidelines of the Civil Service Rules; local, state and federal laws and best practices in the field of Human Resources. The Recruitment and Selection staff also participates in career fairs and other outreach recruitment efforts to provide the most qualified employees for our residents.
