Dual Career Job Assistance

Many prospective, new and current faculty members within Purdue’s College of Engineering have a spouse or partner who is a talented professional with valuable skills. We understand finding a suitable career for your spouse or partner may be a crucial factor in your decision to come to Purdue and to stay. Our program can assist in job search efforts. Together, we can explore employment opportunities for your spouse or partner at Purdue, the Greater Lafayette, and the surrounding area.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible for dual career job search assistance, you must be a spouse or partner of a College of Engineering current or prospective faculty member (tenured/tenure track/research faculty/engineering practice). For Individuals affiliated with another unit, not within Engineering seeking assistance, please contact the Faculty Dual Career and Relocation Services.
