Does WSU Offer Dual Careers?
WSU doesn’t create new positions for spouses or partners, but we can help them find jobs in the area. WSU belongs to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) which hosts job listings at more than 50 colleges and universities both public and private. HERC provides many resources for dual-career couples and allows you to search for two jobs within commuting distance.
