Employment Opportunities

Working at Santa Ana College (Rancho Santiago Community College District) as a sign language interpreter.

Each semester the RSCCD provides sign language interpreting services to an average of 50 deaf students in the post secondary setting.  The DHHP office located in U-107 on the SAC campus (MAP) is responsible for the provision of interpreters to any one of our many district educational locations.

While it is our continual goal to provide our deaf and hard of hearing students with only the most qualified and skilled interpreters, we do not require that you be certified.   

If you are an experienced sign language interpreter with a current RID/NIC, RID or NAD III, IV or V certification you may apply for work with us without sitting for a skills assessment.  You will be invited for a traditional employment interview, asked to demonstrate your skill in an informal setting. Professional references will be checked.

 If you are not currently certified but have completed an ITP and have three to five years of experience in the post secondary setting OR have experience interpreting in the post secondary setting without formal education or training we want to hear from you as well.  After review of your qualifications and experience we may invite you to sit for our in-house skills assessment.  If you are successful in the skills assessment, you will be asked to participate in a traditional employment interview in order to determine if you would be appropriate for employment as an interpreter with us. Professional references will be checked.
