Dual Career Employment Services
This is a free service provided for partners of newly recruited University of South Carolina faculty or professional staff. The University's Employment Office is ready to provide participants in the Dual Career Employment Services Program with the information needed to conduct their job search — from building a resume to planning a proactive networking strategy.

Participants in Dual Career Employment Services will have access to job postings within the University, as well as those in the surrounding community. While the program cannot guarantee employment, a wide range of

The Employment Coordinator will take an active role in assisting the partner to find suitable employment through one-on-one meetings and correspondence, evaluating cover letters and resumes, sending community business associates the partner’s job profile, as well as reviewing USC's job openings and online employment process.
