Things To Think about Before You Begin Applying Online

Resetting Your Password

To reset your password, click the Forget User Name/Password? link from the View Job Postings page. The system will assist you if you’ve forgotten either your user name or password.

Some Tips to Keep in Mind Throughout

  • Have relevant work history in front of you before you start completing the online application process. You should also have a cover letter, resume and unofficial transcript completed, saved and ready for attaching.
  • The system will time-out after 20 minutes of inactivity. If this happens, your information will be lost. This is an important reason why you should have your cover letter, resume and unofficial transcript completed, saved and ready for attaching!
  • Pay special attention to the fields that are marked with an asterisk (*). You will not be able to submit your application without completing these fields. Tab in and out of fields.

Cover Letter and Transcripts

The system allows for the attachment of your cover letter, resume and unofficial transcripts. We recommend that you put your cover letter and resume in one flowing document before you upload it into the Recruitment Solutions System. Your list of references should be included at the end of your resume document. If, in the future, you wish to add additional attachments, you will have the option to Edit Attachments and add updated cover letters or transcripts.

What to Expect After Submitting Your Online Resume

An automatic e-mail message will be sent to you confirming receipt of your resume. Because our official method of communication is by email, you should get one before you apply to work at GRCC if you do not have an email address.

If you do not have an email address, there are many free sites that provide this service, including Google Gmail ( and Hotmail ( Once you have created an email address, please come back to the website to apply.

Your application information will be reviewed by the appropriate College staff. If you meet the minimum qualifications and an opportunity exists, you may be contacted.
