Position Number: TBD

Percentage of Full Time: 100%

Months per Year: 12

Salary Range: $60,348 (annual) - $77,004 (annual)

General Statement:

San Mateo County Community College District values the principles of diversity and equity. We provide our students with a rich and dynamic learning community that embraces differences, emphasizing collaboration and engaging students in and out of the classroom, encouraging them to realize their goals, and to become critical thinkers and socially responsible leaders.

Under direction of the Director for Career and Workforce Programs, the Program Services Coordinator (PSC) is responsible for the development of a bioscience internship/work-based learning program. Additionally, the PSC will facilitate coordination, planning, logistics, and implementation of all related services such as student recruitment, employer engagement, internship design, orientation, job skills assessments matching and internship placement, and act as a liaison between the college, program faculty, and bioscience employers and provides all other support as needed for current and potential program participants. Public contact is extensive and can include students, staff, other educational institutions, community and business representatives, governmental agencies, and the general public, for the purpose of program development, exchanging partnership information, and services. A high degree of independent judgment and creativity are required to adequately represent the college and program, to serve as a technical resource person for the program, and to design original program components and services. Consequences of errors in judgment can be costly in public relations and in employee time; however, management controls limit the risk of more serious consequences. The Program Services Coordinator can lead the work of student assistants, proctors, and other staff as assigned.
