Policies and Practices

Career Opportunities/Job Postings 

Skidmore is committed to the personal and professional development of its employees. Most vacancies are posted internally for five business days and open to present Skidmore employees only. An email for these open positions will be sent to the 'all employees' list with a private link to the open position. Internal postings do not show up on the Skidmore website unless the position is posted externally to the website. Positions will not be filled for a minimum of five days from initial date of publication.

Employees are encouraged to apply for positions for which they qualify. All applications will be confidential. An employee must be in their current position for six (6) months prior to applying for an open position. This time period requirement may be waived by mutual agreement of the employee, department head and Human Resources. The College's hiring, transfer, and promotion procedures do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, gender, age, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, physical or mental disability, military or veteran status, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, genetic information, predisposition or carrier status, domestic violence victim status, familial status or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws. Skidmore encourages applications from all underrepresented groups. If you wish to apply for a position listed, please submit the required documentation online for that position.

Any employee selected for a posted position is expected to give their present supervisor the usual two weeks' notice unless more time is needed. Compensation decisions for those employees who make a job move within the College will be based on the salary grade and range of the new position as well as internal equity.


If you have questions or require additional information with respect to any Handbook content, please contact Human Resources (extension 5800).
