    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at City Colleges of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was called in for a interview. The interview was three days after I was contacted. I arrived and eventually found the office the interview was to be conducted. I sat down in front of three interviewers and they began to take turns asking me questions. I thought it was odd that the interview was taking place in a office where other staff members were sitting around and or coming pass. That added to my nervousness but I understand.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    The first step is a phone interview. If passed, the next step is an in person interview and presentation with a committee. The committee then recommends 1-2 candidates to the president of the college. At this point, the president interviews the committee approved candidates and makes a recommendation to district office. The final candidate is contacted Human Resources (HR) about the contingent salary offer and the candidate either accepts this offer or asks to negotiate. If candidate accepts the offer, the candidate's file moves to board approval by trustees and CCC Chancellor. Once the board approves the position, this information is released in a board report by district on the CCC website at appointed date. The candidate can either check the report online to see if they have been approved for the position or reach out to HR. Either way, the new hire is contacted by HR with a start date and further instructions.
