Austin Community College is adding more than 100 new full-time faculty and staff positions in order to meet rising demand from enrollment increases and the fall 2010 opening of the Round Rock Campus.
The full-time faculty positions are already posted on the ACC jobs website (austincc.edu/hr/apply). The college will begin internal hiring for the staff jobs in January, with additional vacancies expected to be advertised throughout spring and summer, according to ACC Employment Manager Erica Breedlove.
“We encourage people to visit the ACC jobs website and see what’s available,” says Breedlove. “New positions range from cashiers and campus police to media technology specialists.”
ACC Round Rock job opportunities are located on the Human Resources website at www3.austincc.edu/it/ehire/posting. The college expects to fill each vacancy within six to eight weeks from the time of posting.
Application deadlines are midnight on the advertised closing date listed on each position. All applicants will be notified by email when the posting closes. Individuals selected for interviews will be contacted by telephone and email.
Breedlove encourages applicants to thoroughly read the position’s duties and requirements before they apply. “We expect to receive a high volume of applications, so positions will be very competitive.”
ACC expects openings to occur across the college, not just in Round Rock, as current faculty and staff request to transfer to the new campus. “Ideally, a mix of new and veteran employees will greet students when the campus opens,” Breedlove says.
ACC began Round Rock construction to early this year, after voters there overwhelming approved a proposal to join the college’s taxing district. Being built in phases, the campus will accommodate more than 11,000 students when completed.
“This new hiring reflects ACC’s commitment to expanding our faculty and staff base as enrollment increases,” says Dr. Stephen B. Kinslow, ACC president/CEO. “We want to ensure all students have access to the same high-quality education and support services as ACC grows.”
ACC employs more than 3,100 people across its eight-county service area, with the majority of those concentrated on the college’s seven campuses. The college enrolls more than 40,000 credit students each semester and educates an additional 13,000 individuals through its non-credit, Continuing Education and Adult Education programs.
