Tips for Applying

See some of our top tips for applying at Los Rios.

Application Attachments

Every job posting indicates if attachments are required. Not all attachments are required for all positions.

Types of Attachments

  • Letter of Interest, Resume/Curriculum Vitae (CV), and Letters of Recommendation
    • Required for all administrative/executive and faculty positions.
    • Not accepted for classified jobs. Do not attach to any area of the application.
  • Supplemental Application
  • Unofficial Transcripts
    • If a job posting requires a degree, then you must attach unofficial transcripts that clearly show the title of your degree and the conferral or completion date. You only need to attach transcripts that reflect the degree(s) required to qualify you for the position. If you are concerned as to whether you meet minimum qualifications or not, then you may want to attach multiple related transcripts that pertain to the job you are applying for that show your degrees and coursework.
    • Current employees who are applying for new positions must still attach unofficial transcripts.
  • Report of Arrests That Lead to Conviction of Crimes (Form P-881)
  • Equivalency Determination (Letter of Form P-38)
    • If you indicated that you meet the minimum qualifications for a faculty position by previously being granted equivalency to teach this discipline by Los Rios Community College District, then you need to attach the equivalency approved letter of Form P-38.
    • Learn more about the equivalency determination process.
  • Other
    • If you are applying to a faculty position under the equivalency determination process, then you should use the 'other' attachment type to attach your personal statement and evidence that support your claim.

Labeling Attachments

Make sure your first and last name is on all of your attachments. Remove or hide your social security number (SSN) and date of birth.

Uploading Attachments

You can upload a variety of document formats. All documents are automatically converted to PDF. Follow these guidelines to make sure your attachments properly convert to PDF:

  • Limit the size of your document to less than 2 MB.
  • Use standard fonts, such as Times New Roman or Arial.
  • Avoid complex tables and shading.
  • Avoid the use of several columns in one document.
  • Use black and white only.
  • Avoid embedded images.
  • Do not use password-protected documents.

After you attach documents, view them in your browser to make sure they look correct.
