Recruitment Opportunities

Although many of our opportunities are available to both current SMC employees and individuals from outside the College, some recruitments are conducted on a “promotional” basis. 

Promotional -

The selection of an employee through a competitive selection process into a vacant position in a different classification with a higher salary range, including a higher maximum salary rate.

Merged Promotional and Open -

Opportunities available to both current, permanent and temporary SMC employees, and prospective applicants from outside SMC.

Temporary -

Employees may be assigned on an interim basis to cover for a regular employee who is out on leave, to offer additional assistance during periods of abnormal or peak workloads, to assist in special projects, or to perform seasonal work.  Temporary Assignments provide a great way to showcase your professional skills and assist Santa Monica College while gaining valuable work experience within higher education. 


Transfer opportunities are available for current, permanent SMC employees who have passed their probationary period. Transfer opportunities allow current employees to broaden their experience by working in different locations on campus within their current job or exploring career paths in other fields through lateral transfers or voluntary demotions. Keep reading for additional details about the different types of transfer and other opportunities available. 

Position Transfer - The transfer of an employee into a vacant position within the employee's same classification which results in a change in department or change in supervisor.  Note: Employees can use the transfer process to apply for a shift change (CSEA CBA, Article 6, 6.1.1).

Lateral Transfer - The selection of an employee to a vacant position in a similar or related classification with the same or lower salary range (selected employee must service a probationary period in the new class). 

Voluntary Demotion - An action initiated by the employee that results in a change in their assignment to a position in a different, but related classification which is allocated to a lower salary range.
