Many faculty members who are being recruited by Lehigh University have accomplished partners or spouses who are also seeking employment. Our Faculty Dual Career Assistance Program - DCConnect, is available to assist these highly qualified couples who face the dual career challenge. Partners and spouses are encouraged to utilize the Faculty Dual Career Assistance Program as a powerful resource to learn and execute an effective and productive job search.
Job Search vs. Job Placement
The support an accompanying spouse/partner will receive from the Faculty Dual Career Assistance Program - DCConnect, will be invaluable toward his/her job search efforts and success. However, the University cannot guarantee job placement. Career searches are most successful when professionals conduct a proactive job search rather than a reactive job search. The success of a job search and the length of a search will depend upon several factors including: the economy, the time an individual dedicates toward a search, how one conducts his/her search, and the type of position he/she is seeking.
