How the Program Works

  • Referral. Candidates are referred to The Dual Career Assistance Office by the Office of the Provost, Deans, Department Chairs, Vice Presidents or department heads. Basic information about the status of a search and/or an offer of employment is given at that time, along with information about the spouse or partner.
  • Initial consultation. An initial consultation is conducted with the spouse or partner to determine his or her employment interests, skills and needs. Face to face meetings are encouraged; if not practicable, initial consultations by phone, videoconference or email are also available.
  • Customized assistance. The services offered through the Dual Career Assistance Program are customized to fit individual needs. Assistance is given to identify appropriate employment opportunities and networking contacts.
