    Minimum Qualifications

    Application materials which do not clearly show that the applicant meets the stated minimum qualification requirements will not be considered. Years of experience requirements mean years of full-time work unless otherwise indicated on the position announcement. One year of part-time work may equate to one-half year of full time work, depending upon number of hours worked. 2,080 hours worked per year is considered equivalent to one full year of experience. Any required education must be from an accepted regionally accredited institution. Applicants must clearly and truthfully indicate in the on-line application process that they meet the minimum qualifications established for the position.

    Selection Process 

    The college online application form and required supporting documentation will undergo initial review and evaluation in accordance with the minimum qualifications listed on the position announcement. Application materials which do not clearly indicate that the applicant meets the minimum qualifications as stated will not be considered. Meeting the minimum qualifications for a position does not assure the candidate of an interview. Central Piedmont reserves the right to limit the number of interviews granted to those applicants whose qualifications best meet the needs of the college.

    The candidates selected for an interview will be notified of the time and place of the interview. Unsuccessful applicants will receive an e-mail. Central Piedmont reserves the right to conduct evaluations for knowledge and skills related to any position. A final or second-level interview may be required. Instructional positions will normally require a teaching demonstration. Travel costs related to interviews will be borne by the candidate.

Copies of transcripts are acceptable, but must be legible and indicate degree or certificate awarded, if a degree is required. If college transcripts will be sent directly to Central Piedmont from your college or institution, be sure the transcripts are addressed to the attention of the Human Resources Office.

Copies of college diplomas or grade cards may not substitute for transcripts. If your college records no longer exist, a letter from the custodian of records attesting to your attendance/graduation may suffice. Note to Central Piedmont employees and alumni: the Human Resources Department does not have access to your Central Piedmont academic records or any transcripts you may have submitted to the Office of Admissions for transfer evaluation. You must obtain copies of your unofficial transcripts and submit to the Human Resources Office as required for any other applicant.

Applicants may contact NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluating Service) at to obtain a list of members providing this service.
