Application Process


Applicants must meet eligibility requirements to work in the U.S. at time of appointment. All application materials must be submitted as a complete packet and will become the property of the College. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to ensure his or her application packet is complete. If you are applying for more than one position, you must submit a complete set of information for each position. Once submitted, all application packets become the property of the College.  Requests for copies of application material will be denied by the college. Applications submitted after the application deadline date will not be considered.  
The College will not accept electronically submitted (fax, e-mail, etc.) application materials.

A complete application packet consists of:

• A signed cover letter of application relevant to the position
• A signed LSCC employment application (do not use "see resume" statements within the application).  The application must be complete in nature.
• Current Resume
• A copy of all postsecondary transcripts identifying the applicant, institution, and date degree conferred. If employed, all official transcripts must be received in the office of Human Resources prior to the employment start date. 
• Employment verification letter(s) from a current or previous employer detailing all relevant experience. Employment verification letters must include employment dates and job title and be on official letterhead with an authorized personnel signature. Work experience verification from a current employer may be delayed until an official offer of employment has been made. Applicants must submit a written request to delay submission of work experience verification from a current employer. 

NOTE:  Include certification/license information if your position requires a license (i.e., Nursing, Cosmetology, Barberting, etc...).

Incomplete and/or late application packets will not be considered for employment.  All applicants MUST meet minimum requirements for employment.

Application closing dates:

Application closing dates vary and are listed towards the bottom of each job announcement.  Deadlines are strictly enforced.  Applications should be either mailed or hand-delivered.  Applications that are hand delivered must be received in the Human Resources Office by 4:30 p.m. on the application deadline date. Applications submitted by mail must be postmarked no later than the application deadline date.  Late applications will not be considered.
