The application process consists of uploading your resume/cover letter document, answering a number of questions, and selecting “Submit Application.”

Once you have successfully submitted your application, you may add additional documents. You may upload letters of reference if you have them, or your supporters may attach them to an email to or mail them to:

Things to think about before you begin your online application:


If you are a new user, you will be required to create an account using a unique Username, Password, and a valid Email Address as our official method of communication is via email. If you do not already have an email address, there are many free sites that provide this service, including Google Gmail and Outlook. Once you have created an email address, please return to our website to register and apply for the position you are interested in.

Resetting Your Password/Recovering Your Username

To reset your password or recover your User Login, click either the 'Forgot Password link or 'Forgot Username' links from the Job Search webpage (Sign In link). If use of the links does not resolve the issue, please contact Human Resources at or (616) 234-3972 for additional assistance.

Application Tips

Please have your cover letter and resume saved as one document, ready to attach to your application. The system will time-out after twenty (20) minutes of inactivity. If this happens, your information will be lost. This is an important reason why you should have your documents saved and ready for attaching.

Pay special attention to the fields marked with an asterisk (*). You will not be able to proceed with the application without completing these fields.

Attaching Documents

The application process will allow for attachment of your cover letter and resume as one document.

Transcripts and Letters of Recommendation can be added after your application has been submitted. Please note: your resume can not be edited once your application has been successfully submitted. To make changes, you must withdraw your application and re-apply before the deadline.

What to Expect After Submitting your Application

An automatic email message will be sent to you confirming receipt of your application.

The appropriate College staff will review your application information. If you meet the minimum qualifications and the opportunity exists, you may be contacted.
