Position Description

Ideal Candidate Statement

Ohlone College seeks to employ faculty members who have a passion for counseling, teaching and learning and a strong commitment to the missions and ideals of the community college. We are looking for excellent counselors who are student-oriented in their approach and dedicated to student success.

The ideal Ohlone faculty member will have strong leadership skills and an interest in active participation in college-wide activities. Excellent communication skills with students, staff and faculty peers are essential. We are looking for faculty who are flexible in their work and adaptable to change. Ohlone prides itself as a Learning College with the motto of “A World of Cultures United in Learning” and we are looking for faculty who embrace diversity in serving students of varied backgrounds and learning styles. The College is committed to environmental sustainability and looks to all employees to support this important goal.


Ohlone College is seeking a pool of qualified applicants for possible temporary part-time teaching assignments. These positions are filled on an as needed basis and are on-going recruitments. Assignments may include day, evening and weekend courses and may be in-person, online or blended courses.
As staffing needs arise, our Deans will review the pool and contact those applicants they are interested in interviewing. There are also times that adjunct faculty are needed to fill a last minute void as well. Therefore, departments are better able to communicate their most recent teaching needs at the time of interviews.
Applicants must meet the minimum academic requirements listed in order to be considered for the pool of qualified candidates. Applicants who meet the minimum requirements are not automatically accepted to teach at Ohlone. As this is for a pool of applicants, it may take time before you hear anything.

This is a part-time, faculty counseling position reporting to the Dean of Counseling and Special Programs. The duties cover the full range of general counseling responsibilities including academic, career, and personal counseling to a diverse student body. Assignment may include special population counseling (such as Veterans, International Students, etc) and/or teaching personal development classes. Applicants with qualification in counseling disabled or deaf/hard of hearing students should indicate this in the application materials.
