What is Illinois Central College’s process to fill staff and full-time Faculty positions?
After an application is received, it is reviewed by Human Resources who screens for minimum qualifications and all other required documentation.
Applicants who meet the minimum requirements for a position and have submitted all the required materials are then electronically forwarded to a screening committee.
For the purpose of providing equal employment opportunities for everyone, Illinois Central College utilizes a screening committee approach to fill positions. Screening committees typically consist of a minimum of 3 College employees who reflect diversity in terms of gender, ethnicity and age. Screening committee members are required to complete a Diverse Hiring Educational Session before they may participate in the interviewing of candidates.
Each of the screening committee members rate the applications and apply a numerical score to each candidate. The scores are then combined and applicants are ranked from high (most qualified) to low (least qualified).
The top candidates are then contacted and scheduled for an interview. (Depending on the competencies of the position, top candidates may be required to successfully complete skills testing, such as typing, data entry and/or Microsoft Office tests, before they may advance to the Interview step).
For full-time openings, the successful candidate is contacted by Human Resources. For part-time openings, successful candidates are contacted by the department. All final candidates must successfully complete a background check, drug screen and a physical.
For specialized positions, such as the Campus Police Recruit, a polygraph examination and psychological examination is required, in addition to a written and physical agility exam.
Applicants who are not selected to fill a position will be notified by email when a position is filled.
What is ICC’s process for filling Adjunct Faculty positions?
Individuals wishing to apply for an adjunct faculty position may access the Adjunct Faculty Application Database online. Applicants are required to attach a cover letter, current resume, college transcripts (both undergraduate and graduate) and any other professional certifications to their electronic application in order to be considered.
The completed adjunct applications are placed into a “pool,” which means that until an actual opening exists, no employment process will take place. The application pool is directly accessible by the applicable Deans who select, interview, and hire part-time faculty on an as-needed basis.
If you do not see your area of interest listed on the Adjunct Faculty Opportunities webpage, this means that there are no part-time faculty needs for that subject. You may check the webpage periodically to see if new part-time teaching opportunities become available.
