Dual-Career Assistance

    The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity works closely with faculty, deans, and administrators across Harvard to provide dual-career assistance and develop related programs that enhance each School’s ability to recruit and retain faculty, which often involves the needs and interests of a family.  Individual guidance is provided to assist faculty partners in identifying career development opportunities and in making meaningful connections that enhance their professional pursuits and ease the transition to the Harvard community and Cambridge area.  The Office also provides programs on dual-career topics and information on helpful resources for dual-career couples.

    Harvard University is also the host institution for the New England Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (NE-HERC).  A collaboration of over 70 colleges, universities, laboratories and teaching hospitals in the area, the New England HERC advances member institutions’ ability to recruit and retain the most diverse and talented faculty and staff and to assist dual-career couples.  The New England HERC web site, www.newenglandherc.org, is a free database of close to 3,000 job openings at member institutions, including faculty, staff, and medical positions.  The central location of job openings and regional resources, as well as the website’s ability to accommodate dual-career searches, distinguishes NE-HERC from other employment websites.  The robust network of Human Resources and Faculty Affairs professionals within the HERC network also enhances the experience of dual-career job seekers who are served.
