Employment

Notice to Applicants

In our ongoing efforts to support the health of our community and to continue to safely operate our campus, we are requiring all employees to verify that they are up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, unless they have a medical or religious exemption that has been approved by the College. All new hires without an exemption must be fully vaccinated prior to their start date, and will need to receive their booster within 30 days of reaching their booster eligibility date. Participation in this effort is mandatory, and information provided will be kept confidential. New employees who are already eligible for their booster shot (six months after their second shot for Pfizer/Moderna or three months after their single shot of Johnson & Johnson) must provide proof of a completed booster prior to their first day of work.

Please be aware that we may experience delays in the hiring process as we work to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and candidates.
For current information on our COVID-19 mitigation efforts, please visit the College’s COVID-19 information site.

The fact that the College values its employees—and that we provide our students with the best learning experience—makes my service here more than just a job.  I have opportunities throughout the year to better myself—become more skilled at my job, learn new technology, or gain insight into best practices.
