Academic | Dual Careers

Finding a job is stressful, and finding a job in a location that accommodates your working partner can create added limitations to your job search.

One of the best resources for finding dual positions in higher education is the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC). This site has a Dual Career Search Tool that allows you to search for two jobs within a commutable distance, whether you are looking for two faculty positions or faculty/staff positions. Additionally, HERC lists universities with Dual Career programs and compiles articles about the dual career job hunt.

View the Dual Careers presentation to learn more about common challenges, additional resources, and strategies for conducting a dual career search.
