General application information

Delta College’s Human Resource Office only accepts applications submitted through the online process. Please visit People Admin to review and apply to current job openings.

Although applicants can submit application materials to several job openings, please note that it is Delta College's practice that candidates who accept part-time employment are only able to hold one position within the college at a time.

Employment consideration at Delta College requires applicants to meet qualifications as listed in any posted position. Online postings summarize the essential functions and requirements for the position. Applicants are typically required to answer supplemental questions that support experience and education as relates to the job posting. In addition, applicants may be required to submit supplemental application materials that include: resumes, cover letters, Curriculum Vitae transcripts and recommendations. Applicants who do not meet required qualifications or submit required documentation will not continue through the search process.

Please thoroughly review both job posting requirements and submitted application materials to determine if you have all of the necessary electronic files to submit your application.

Once completed online application materials are submitted, applicants will receive a confirmation message that appears within the screen. If a confirmation message is not received, applicants should return to the application and make sure all of the following are complete: contact information, education history, employment history, supplemental questions; and supporting documents that include resume, cover letter, transcripts, curriculum vitae, and recommendations.

All hiring decisions are based on qualifications for the selection of the best talent. When an application is received, it is carefully screened in alignment with minimum requirements and additional considerations as listed in the job posting. Applicants who meet required qualifications will receive further consideration, which may include phone interviews, in-person interviews, scheduled campus tours and skills-related testing.

Application materials for Part-time Adjunct Faculty are screened by the appropriate division. Specific part-time teaching needs for future semesters may not be known until the end of class registration. If a need materializes, and it is determined that your credentials meet position requirements, you will receive further consideration. Selected candidates are invited to participate in interviews in which a teaching demonstration will be required.

Applicants, who are currently employed with the college, previously employed by the college, and/or submitted application materials to other current or prior postings, must submit application materials as relates to postings of interest. Upon submission of your application materials, please regularly check your application to know the status of your application. Applicants/Candidates may also view the table below (Status of Open Posotions) to check the status of any currently posted positron for which the college is seeking qualified candidates.

If you are contacted for an interview and are required to travel, the College will pay one half of approved travel cost.  Travel by a personal vehicle will be reimbursed at the College mileage rate, not to exceed one half of the lowest plane fare cost.  The cost of meals will be reimbursed to candidates not to exceed the daily rate in the Delta College Procedures Manual; long distance telephone calls made or alcoholic beverages purchased by the candidate will not be included.

We wish you success in your chosen career endeavors and invite you to consider Delta College for employment openings as Delta is not only a "great" place to work, but continues to rank as one of America’s leading community colleges.

Minimum Technology Skills

Minimum Skills Required, but not limited to:

1. Telephone

Etiquette – Outside calls should be answered in a friendly, business-like manner, identifying the institution, department, and self (last name optional).  Inside calls should be answered in the same manner with the exception of identifying the institution.  If unsure of call (inside or outside) answer as if it is an outside caller.       

Employee should be able to:

  • Transfer calls – always give caller transfer information, i.e. extension, department, person’s name to whom they are being transferred.  If unsure of where to transfer caller, never just transfer.  Make sure that you are sending caller to the right department before  you hang up.
  • Place and retrieve a call “on hold.”
  • Manipulate Voicemail – check messages (at least once a day, if not more), record a message to reflect schedule and give caller an alternate option, change message to out-of-office greeting, for a message to another number, place a call directly to a voice mail box, and check voicemail from another location.

Rationale – Our first contact with a customer may be our only opportunity to make a good impression. By engaging in the above skills, it provides consistency within the College and projects a professional image.

2. Electronic calendar

Be courteous, wait patiently, and provide privacy to user ahead of you. Maintain a neat work area and notify person responsible in that area if a problem arises.
