Frequently Ask Questions

Can I submit a paper application?

All applications are submitted electronically only. However, the College may assist in providing access to a computer for application submission.

Can I submit an application and resume to be kept on file?

With the exception of part-time instructors or part-time hourly ongoing positions, applications are accepted only for a job posting. The College does not maintain files of resumes for future notification. You are encouraged to monitor this site for employment opportunities and apply for any position you might qualify for.

How can I be sure that my application packet is complete?

Carefully read the “Application Procedure” section of the job posting. Once the application has been submitted to a particular posting, NO additional changes to the application can be made. Please be absolutely sure everything is completed and attached before final submission. After twenty-four hours you may submit a revised application. The most recent complete application will be advanced to the hiring agent.

Can I apply for more than one job posting simultaneously?

You may apply for more than one position. However, you must submit an individual application for each job posting.

Do I have to submit original transcripts?

Unofficial transcripts are acceptable at the time of submission of the application. However, original transcripts are required upon hire.

Do I have to submit references?

References, including names, contact information, and relationship, are required at the time of application.

How will I know that my application was received?

You will receive a confirmation message that the College has successfully received your application packet.

How can I get an update on my application submission?

Once you have created your login account, you will be able to access your personalized message center for any updates applicable to job postings for which you applied.

What is the difference between a required qualification and a preferred qualification?

A required qualification is necessary to qualify for a position. Preferred qualifications are not needed to qualify for a position but may be used as a factor when selecting from among the applicants.

How long does the search process take?

The search process usually takes at least one month from the application deadline to complete depending on various circumstances. However, occasionally due to unforeseen circumstances, the search process may take longer.

How will I know the status of the search process?

Generally, interviews occur within three weeks of the application deadline. Once an offer of employment is extended and accepted, all unsuccessful applicants are notified electronically that the position has been filled. You may view the status of your application by logging into your online account.

What is “work experience verification?”

Neither a resume nor an application is appropriate verification of work experience. It is not our policy to contact current and/or previous employers to obtain employment verification. “Work experience verification is required in writing from your current and/or previous employer(s) confirming the required level of experience as stated in the “Minimum Qualifications” section and other related experience. Verification should include dates of employment and position title(s). Proof of work experience verification may be delayed until an official offer of employment using the Work Experience Verification form, which is found on the Human Resources home page. All work experience verification must be completed within 15 days following the employment offer.

I applied for a position previously, and now I want to apply for a position you have posted now. Can you copy the file that I have already submitted?

Submitted application materials become the property of the College, and once a position is filled, all application packets are filed and inactivated. Copies of application materials will not be provided to applicants. We suggest that each applicant keep a copy, for his/her records, of any application materials submitted, including copies of work experience verifications and transcripts.
