I'm editing a crontab for a job that I want to run it every hour but at specific time like at 10:15AM, 11:15AM, 12:15PM so on. I'm not sure if this is possible though.

For every hour 0 * * * *

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Set the minute to 15. So, you can use the following form:

15 * * * * <command>

Cron manpage is worth a read, and there are plenty of tutorials out there that explain this even more clearly.
