Dual Career Program

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is committed to the recruitment and retention of an outstanding, innovative, and diverse faculty and staff. Often times, this means providing support and assistance for career opportunities for spouses and partners. We’re proud that the university has provided dual career assistance since 1992. While we cannot guarantee employment, we will assist as early in the recruitment process as possible to direct spouses and partners to appropriate job openings. We will also facilitate conversations and activate networks within the university and local community.

When looking for an academic position or nonacademic position, we encourage candidates to discuss available opportunities for spouses and partners early in the recruitment and relocation process with the hiring department chair and college dean. In most cases, the standard search process is required and candidates must meet stated requirements for expertise and qualifications. However, in some situations when a unique programmatic opportunity is recognized, a new position may be created.

University Human Resources and the community resource links provided offer additional support for information about nonacademic positions. The Career Services Office can also provide help with preparing resumes and mock interviews. Applicants may be given access to "Handshake," a leading career platform to search and apply for jobs with university industrial partners and other community employers.
