Effective 2/12/18, the City of Austin eliminated salary history as a part of the application and hiring process. Two specific changes are being implemented:

1) Applicant's previous salary will no longer be requested and the section on the application has been removed.

2) Procedures regarding applicant's previous salary are no longer a part of our screening, interviewing, or selection.

Sections asking for an applicants desired salary, as well as confirming understanding of the available salary range for a position, may still be asked but a response is optional.  If you have any concerns regarding this change, please contact our employment line at 512-974-3210.
