Announcements of employment opportunities to be filled competitively are provided to all employees via e-mail. The announcements are also posted on the Human Resources Department website and are included on the Job Line (831-6078, TDD 831-6064). Recruitment advertisements are published in the El Paso Times newspaper. Administrative and tenure-track faculty positions are also announced in the Chronicle of Higher Education and other specialized publications, as appropriate.
The College recognizes that it is in the best interest of both the College and its employees to provide a challenging and satisfactory work environment. Those employees who show a special skill, an ability to grow professionally and who have a record of quality service may have the opportunity to advance to higher-level positions. When it is in the best interest of the College to fill a position by promotion, consideration shall be given to eligible employees and the selection will be based upon demonstrated capacity, quality, and length of service. This normally occurs through competitive selection.
Employees of the District are eligible to compete for promotions by applying for announced vacancies. There is no minimum length of service requirement for new employees before they may apply for promotional positions.
In some cases an employment vacancy may be filled by an employee transferring from one position to another at an equal or lower classification. This normally occurs on a competitive basis. Transfer opportunities are available through vacancy announcements which are distributed via e-mail. These vacancies provide employees the opportunity to apply for competitively-advertised positions. General guidelines for employee transfers are contained in College Procedure 3.05.12.10
