Helpful Hiring and Onboarding Information
Welcome to ACC’s Resource for Faculty Hiring
It takes a village to recruit a new ACC Riverbat, especially those hired to educate, shape, and broaden the minds and experiences of many! ACC’s Office of Employment and Outreach Services supports its faculty community by providing the resources faculty need to recruit stellar educators to teach at the College.
Austin Community College is thrilled to have new, and veteran ACC faculty and employees participate in its hiring processes. Below you will find resources to help navigate through ACC’s Hiring Processes.
Faculty Recruiting Season
The kickoff off of every fall faculty recruiting season is exciting. Human Resources is ready to partner with academic departments to recruit faculty candidates. ACC’s faculty recruiting season begins in September and ends at the beginning of June.
This season will be especially critical for hiring committees to complete the hiring of their vacant positions as early as reasonably possible. As we approach the summer of 2021, ACC will be preparing for its implementation of Workday, a new ERP system. New faculty, adjunct, staff, hourly, and Work-Study students will be hired into the Workday system. We want to ensure new employees have a smooth onboarding process and obtain the proper access to ACC systems to begin their instructional endeavors.
