APPLICATION PROCEDURE:

All applicants, including previous and current VCCCD employees, must submit the following materials in order for their application to be considered. Failure to submit these materials will result in disqualification.

* Letter of Application: The letter of application must include date, your name, position and location for which you are applying. Your sensitivity to and understanding of the diverse academic, social, economic, cultural, disability, and ethnic backgrounds of community college students must also be included. The letter should give the screening committee a better understanding of how you will contribute as a fully participating member of the VCCCD
* Completed Application for Academic Employment
* Resume
* Letters of recommendation (recommended, not required)
* Supplemental Questionnaire for Equivalency, if applicable (see minimum qualifications above)
* Complete official or unofficial college/university transcripts demonstrating attainment of minimum qualifications. Transcripts must show the degree title and the date the degree was conferred or the degree will not be considered for the purpose of determining if you meet minimum qualifications. If the qualifying degree has yet to be conferred and you expect to have the degree before you begin employment, you must submit transcripts that state the title of the degree you are working toward obtaining and indicate the anticipated completion date in your response to the associated supplemental question provided during the application process. Diplomas will not be accepted in lieu of transcripts. An official copy of your transcripts will be required upon being hired. Instructors will not be allowed to start working until official transcripts have been received.

NOTE: If you have completed coursework at a foreign institution that is not recognized as accredited by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or the U.S. Department of Education, you must include a full evaluation of the foreign transcript with your application materials if you wish for us to consider the coursework. To search for institutions that are recognized as accredited by CHEA or the U.S. Department of Education, visit http://www.chea.org/4dcgi/chea/search/index.html?MenuKey=main or http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/search.aspx.

SELECTION PROCESS:
A screening committee will review and screen all applications and associated materials. Those candidates deemed by the committee to be most qualified for the position will be invited to an interview. When completing the application and the supplemental questionnaire, it is important to outline in detail your education, training (classes, seminars, workshops), and experience. You will be evaluated based upon the information provided.

Individuals with disabilities requiring reasonable accommodation in the selection process must inform the Ventura County Community College District Human Resources Department in writing no later than the filing date stated on the announcement. Those applicants needing such accommodations should document this request including an explanation as to the type and extent of accommodation needed to participate in the selection process.
