Dual Career Program

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to recruiting the most exceptional faculty so that we can continue to excel and innovate.

In order to fulfill this commitment, Illinois Human Resources and the Office of the Provost added the Dual Career Liaison role to our campus in March of 2014. This has allowed us to have great success helping partners of our tenure-track faculty and faculty candidates find employment both on and off campus.

Program Overview

The Dual Career Program provides job search assistance for partners of newly recruited tenure-system faculty and senior-level administrators. The Dual Career Liaison will provide employment information to program candidates so they are able to network, build relationships, and identify possible employment opportunities. The program also provides the following services:

  • Resum√© review and critique
  • Interviewing skills assessment
  • Job search strategy
