Human Resources Technical Manager
I enjoy working at ACC because I believe in our mission of “providing innovative and responsive educational and economic opportunities in an accessible, inclusive environment that promotes success for students, employees and the community”. I also feel appreciated by the people I work with. I really like the opportunities to improve my skills with the many professional development classes offered. As a Research Associate, I get to dig into our data to answer unique questions about the success of our students, college, and programs using business intelligence software. It’s great to work with people that care about the students, community, and doing a good job.

What is the Classified State Personnel System?
The Classified State Personnel System is a merit system, which means that all appointments and promotions to jobs in the system require applicants to apply and compete against similar standards. Colorado State Government is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate for or against any applicant based on age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation, or disability. All employment opportunities are open to qualified persons who are at least 16 years old (unless other age limits are required).
Why must I be a resident of Colorado to apply for State jobs?
The Colorado Constitution, Article XII, Section 134 requires that applicants for state classified government jobs be residents of Colorado, unless the requirement is waived by the State Personnel Board. If the residency requirement has been waived for an announced vacancy it will be noted on the job announcement and applications will be considered from individuals who are not residents of Colorado.

What happens after I apply for a job?
Application Review: All applications submitted in response to the job announcement are reviewed to identify the applicants who meet the minimum requirements for the job. Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements are notified in writing. Applicants who meet the minimum qualifications will continue into the examination process if a classified position or to the committee review process if non-classified.
Committee Review: For non-classified positions a search committee will review applicant materials and determine first round interview candidates. The committee will forward their recommendations to the hiring manager for interview.
Examination Process: The state personnel system as defined by the Colorado Constitution requires that all jobs within the classified system be filled through competitive tests of merit and fitness. The number and types of examinations will depend on the position being filled as well as the number of qualified applicants.
Testing Information: Within the state personnel system you may be considered for vacancies only if you have completed the appropriate test(s). You may retake a written multiple-choice test after one year from the date you were last tested. Performance tests (typing, equipment operation, etc.) may be retaken at the discretion of the agency administering the test. All other tests may be retaken after a six-month period. If you retake a test, only the most recent scores are retained on file.
Hiring Manager Interview: The hiring manager will conduct the final interview and make their selection.
