Careers at Smith

 

 

Smith College seeks to attract individuals who are committed to our mission of providing the highest quality education to women. Smith College enjoys the reputation as one of the finest colleges in the country. This reputation, tempered by time and challenged by change, holds strong because of the dedicated work of our staff, faculty and administration.

We are a diverse group bringing to our community different talents, perspectives and experiences. Our strength arises from this diversity and is sustained by a community value of providing an outstanding educational environment for our nearly 2,700 students.

Internal Mobility

The internal transfer process is designed to help achieve the college's goal of offering employees the opportunity for development and career advancement through internal mobility. In alliance with this goal, Smith strives to promote and create leadership opportunities for Smith staff and to maintain excellence through diversity.

Eligibility

Eligible candidates include regular exempt, nonexempt, service and limited-term employees of the college, employed for 12 months or longer in their current position, with acceptable work performance (employees with documented performance concerns would not be eligible). Casual temporary and agency employees are not eligible as internal applicants.

How to Apply

All positions are posted on the Careers@Smith online employment system with a posting type of "internal" for the first five business days, beginning on a Friday and ending on the following Friday. Thereafter, positions are moved to an "external" type, although internal candidates may apply at any time and retain their internal status.

The Process

Once an internal application is submitted through Careers@Smith for an open position, the applicant will receive an online confirmation notice and number.

Each internal application will be reviewed for eligibility (job status, length of service, personnel issues) and minimum qualifications. Applicants who are not eligible or not qualified for the position will be contacted by a human resources representative to explain why and to offer additional career development resources and assistance. Internal applications who are eligible and qualified will be forwarded to the hiring manager for review.

Candidates whose application are reviewed by the hiring manager and not selected for an interview, or interviewed but not selected for the position, will be contacted by the hiring manager as a professional and community courtesy. Employees not hired may contact human resources for further coaching or career development.
