Thank you for your interest in becoming a Sign Language Interpreter or Real-Time Captioner for Ohlone College. We have two types of positions for qualified interpreters and captioners, full-time staff positions and part-time or as we call them "short-term peak" positions.

If you are interested in becoming one of our staff interpreters or captioners (which includes a salary and benefits package), please check our Human Resources website to see if we have any classified Staff Sign Language Interpreter I or II or Staff Captioner I or II positions available.

For short-term peak positions, you can contact the Student Accessibility Services Supervisor at, by phone (510) 659-6271. Appointments can be made to fill out an application and, if you're not RID certified, take Ohlone's interpreter evaluation. While we attempt to provide adequate work for our interpreters and captioners, being hired does not guarantee classes will be available every semester.

For more information about interpreting at Ohlone, including a map, our Code of Professional Conduct and pay scale, please refer to either the Ohlone Interpreter Handbook or Real-time Captioner Handbook.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to meeting you.
