Steps to Apply


Click on "Create Application" on the left side of the page.
Then, choose one of the following

  • Classified, Confidential, and Temporary Staff Application 
  • Part Time Faculty Application 
  • Administrative, Management and Faculty Application

You will be prompted to do this.  If you forget your username or password, please contact us at (707) 476-4140. Do not create a duplicate account.

Prompts will be given during the application process.

Required information is denoted with an asterisk (*). Other questions are optional but it is better for you as an applicant if you answer all questions to the best of your ability.

  • Please provide a current, working email address. All of our applicant communication is done via email.
  • Click "Save and Continue to Next" as you complete each page in order to save your work.

  • Do not leave the Education or Employment Background sections blank and/or reference "see resume." You can easily copy and paste the information from your resume and vita, and this usually works better because you can spell check in the word processing program.
  • Once you have completed your application, you MUST certify your application by clicking on "Continue and Confirm," or your application will be incomplete.
  • To update or edit your application, click on "Manage Applications" and choose the application you wish to modify (Administrative/Management/Faculty, Classified, or Part-Time Faculty). Remember to "Save and Continue to Next." You must certify your application once again to save the updated information.

Suggestion: Take a moment to review your application; see how it will look to the screening committee. Double check your education, past employment, dates, etc. Remember that this is your gateway to a potential interview.

  • Click on "Apply For This Posting"
  • On the "View Position Data Summary" page, you will be able to Edit, View, or Continue with this data; click on "Continue with this Data." Doing this attaches your application to this specific posting.
  • Answer and submit supplemental questions, if prompted.
  • Certify your answers by clicking on "Submit Answers to Supplemental Questions with My Application.
  • Please read instructions before attaching your documents on the "Attach Documents" page- you will find that most answers to your questions can be found on that page.
  • Although your documents are being attached to a specific application and posting, they will always be available for you to select and attach when you apply for future positions with College of the Redwoods.
  • When you are done attaching your documents, click on "Finish Attaching Documents." Click on "Yes" to confirm; you will get a confirmation number on the very last page. Click on "OK" to go back to the "Application Status" page where you can review all jobs you have applied to, as well as view any of your attachments.
