Starting Wage/Salary Range:
In an effort to be as transparent as possible, please note that the starting wage/salary ranges listed in our position postings are based on a thorough analysis of COCC’s pay equity, current budget, and specific employee group contracts. Thus, these ranges are fixed as noted in the posting and non-negotiable. The wage/salary schedules on the College website are used for internal purposes, and should not be interpreted as a means of negotiating starting pay during the recruitment process.
Equivalency when applying for positions:
The College recognizes the value of skills and knowledge gained outside of formal higher education and paid employment. Applicants who do not meet the qualifications indicated in the job posting, but present other qualifications or experience equivalent to those required will be considered and are encouraged to apply. To qualify under equivalency, applicants must complete the equivalency question within the application. The equivalency statement should include supporting evidence to substantiate alternative qualifications. Example 1: The position requires a bachelor’s degree in a specific discipline/area. You have a bachelor’s degree in another area and work experience that, when combined, you feel is equivalent to the specific degree requirement. Example 2: The position requires a master’s degree. You have a bachelor’s degree and work experience that, when combined, you feel is equivalent to the degree requirement.
All College faculty, administrators, and staff whose jobs would benefit are expected to have or commit to acquiring significant computer literacy.

Additionally, employees will be expected to use the Internet and to integrate multimedia applications into classroom use when appropriate.
Applicant information and the employment review process are confidential. COCC's processes and systems are designed to support every applicant's privacy and equal opportunity for employment. COCC utilizes a committee review process to ensure full and equitable consideration of applicant qualifications.
