5 Funding LimitationsEach year Department of Education allocates to COCC a set amount of funding to award students for the WS Program. (example $180,000)COCC is required to match a percentage. (25%)Thus, COCC WS funding is born. ($225,000)
6 Department Allocations Allocations are a specific amount of funding for a department. (2 positions x $3600=$7200)Allocations are currently in $3600 increments for the1415 award year which is the equivalent to the maximum WS award a student may receive.This equates to approximately:Fall $1200, Winter $1200, Spring $1200 (working hours per week)Summer $900, Fall $900, Winter $900, Spring $900 (working 8-10 hours per week)

17 Supervisor Process Things to keep in mind: Supervisors are to maintain a “real” job search process for students.When hiring, students with the departments major should have preference for the job, gaining experience in their field of study.Every interviewee must be treated the same.
18 Supervisor ProcessQualifying veteran students will receive additional consideration, or veterans preference, during the COCC employment process under ORS and ; OAR to To prove eligibility for veteran’s preference, the student must submit (upload) a copy of their Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214 or 215) as part of their online application in PeopleAdmin. When reviewing the applicant pools, please be sure to note who has identified themselves as a veteran. If a student has uploaded the required DD214 form, they meet veteran’s preference and they must be interviewed.
19 Supervisor ProcessAfter reviewing the applications, contact qualified students to schedule interviewsAlso update the student’s ‘workflow’ in PeopleAdmin: “Interview Pending”.Upon selecting the student that your department would like to hire:Update PeopleAdmin ‘workflow’: “Recommend for Hire”.Background check will be requested.
