Palomar College Learning For Success

General Employment Information at Palomar

On your application, please include all your related experience for the position you are applying for, detailing your job duties as they related to the minimum qualifications on the posting. Since meeting the minimum qualifications for a position does not guarantee that you will receive an interview, being thorough will help HR determine if you meet the minimum qualifications, and help the hiring committee with their decision on who to interview.

Palomar College does not sponsor visas for employees or assist employees in obtaining work visas.

Degrees that are completed outside of the United States are required to have transcripts evaluated (evaluation to U.S. equivalency and a course by course analysis) by an appropriate U.S. credentials evaluation service.

For a list of credentials evaluation agencies accepted by Palomar College, visit the National Association of Credentials Evaluation Services (NACES) website at, or the Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc. (AICE) website at

Palomar College does not endorse or recommend any particular agency on these sites. Please note that credentials evaluation agencies charge a fee for their services and that we are unable to reimburse for these fees. Human Resource Services will accept unofficial copies of transcript evaluations until the date of hire.

Human Resources will begin screening all applications for minimum qualifications once the position has closed. Applications that meet the minimum qualifications and considered complete will be forwarded to the selection committee for review. Applicants selected for interview will be contacted by Human Resources approximately 4-8 weeks after the position closes. If it has been more than two months from the posting's close date and you haven't received notification from us, you may contact us via email at or by calling 760-744-1150 ext. 3024.

Due to the nature of our hiring process, and to ensure fairness and consistency for all interviewees, Palomar College only conducts interviews in person on our campus. We are unable to interview candidates by telephone or videoconferencing. If you are invited to an interview, you will be required to come to the campus for your interview.

Please complete the Confidential Data Sheet portion of your application packet, in which you can describe your needs and request specific accommodations. Or, if you prefer, you may contact our office by phone at (760) 744-1150 ext. 3024 or email us at to discuss your needs confidentially.
