Posted on: June 10, 2021

Job Description:


Columbia Basin College ("CBC" or the "College") seeks to develop a pool of applicants for Temporary Hourly (Paraprofessional) positions. CBC employs temporary employees to meet short-term and intermittent workload needs. Temporary Hourly employees have non-student status and are defined as those staff employees not occupying a budgeted line position (an appointed position) and are temporary, at-will employees.

Temporary hourly positions are exempt from the Higher Education Personnel rules and must not work 1050 hours or more in any twelve (12) consecutive month period from the original date of hire. The length of employment and the number of hours worked per week are undetermined and may be continued or terminated based on funding, workload fluctuations, etc. There is no contract or guarantee of continued employment.

CBC accepts applications for temporary hourly positions on an ongoing basis, though it does not necessarily imply that there are immediate openings. Applicants who meet the minimum required qualifications and submit a complete application with all required components will become part of a standing pool which the College will draw on as department/scheduling needs dictate.

Primary Responsibilities

Perform tasks as assigned by a staff member in support of department or program which may include the following:

  • Receive visitors, answer telephones, and supply information to the staff, students and the general public; make referrals as appropriate;
  • Provide clerical assistance to program/department staff to include but not limited to, filing, copying, distribution of documents, processing in-coming mail and email messages;
  • Prepare standardized documents such as letters, emails and/or responses to requests for information; review documents or records for completeness, accuracy and compliance with the rules; and
  • Maintain manual and electronic documents, files and records.

Required Qualifications

  • High school diploma or equivalent;
  • One (1) year of clerical experience;
  • Experience in customer service;
  • Proficient in Microsoft Office (Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint).

Please note: Completed applications will remain viable for the hiring supervisor to review as the need arises. The current pool remains in effect until June 27, 2021. If you wish to be considered thereafter, please resubmit your application. Should you be selected for an interview, you will be contacted directly by the hiring supervisor, otherwise, your completed application will remain in the pool.


Prior to a new hire, a background check includingcriminal record history will be conducted. Information from the background check will not necessarily preclude employment but will be considered in determining the applicant's suitability and competence to perform in the position.


In the interest of providing a healthy, safe and secure education and work environment, and in order to meet the requirements of federal legislation, it is the policy of Columbia Basin College to maintain an alcohol and drug-free workplace for our employees and students.

If you are hired, you will need to provide proof of identity and documentation of U.S. citizenship or appropriate authorization to work in this position as required by the Immigration Reform Control Act of 1986.
