List of General Schedule (GS) Government Job Series

In the federal government, every employee is classified based on their job functions, which are broken down into "series" identified by a four-digit job series number. Each series contains a number of related job titles.

Each series has a starting paygrade for new hires within the series, as well as a maximum paygrade that can be attained within that series. Therefore, your job series is a factor that determines your minimum and maximum salary.

There are 343 job series that use the General Schedule (GS) payscale. Click on any job series for job descriptions, starting and maximum base pay rates, and a list of current job openings within the series.
