B.   Career Advancement and Professional Growth

For individuals wishing to advance their careers with Trinity, the Office of Human Resources posts notices of open positions on a continuous basis. Internal candidates with appropriate qualifications are often preferred to fill open positions. However, no supervisor should discuss an open position with an employee working in another department without first consulting with the director of Human Resources.

Individual employees who would like to receive advice and counseling about career growth at Trinity may and should take advantage of the services available through Human Resources as well as the College’s Career Center.
