I just received the following email from “Inside Higher Ed”:http://insidehighered.com which I thought SM readers might be interested in (disclosure: I write occasionally for IHE). Happy Valentine’s day!
Tens of thousands of academic couples are searching for jobs in the same city. Now Inside Higher Ed introduces “Dual Career Search”:http://dualsearch.insidehighered.com/interfoliorecruiter/?event=DualCareerSearch
— a way for couples to conduct joint job searches.
To celebrate the launch of Dual Career Search, Inside Higher Ed is sponsoring the “Commuting for Love” contest. Readers are invited to submit stories of their challenging academic commutes — 1,000 words or less. We’ll post the best stories on Inside Higher Ed, and pick one couple to win one round-trip airfare between any two U.S. cities (up to $500).
To show a little more love, Inside Higher Ed will send a box of chocolates to the first five academic couples who report that they found jobs in the same city using the Dual Career Search.
Send stories about your commutes (and news of jobs found) by March 14 to Kathlene Collins.
With hundreds of thousands of informed, diverse readers on Inside Higher Ed each month — many of them daily — Inside Higher Ed has become the top source for news of academe in just two years of publication. With 3,000 academic jobs at institutions all over the country, and with the new Dual Career Search, Inside Higher Ed is the place to find a job as a professor, dean, admissions official or president and to find a job for your partner. Inside Higher Ed’s readers may be on their own in finding love — but they are no longer on their own in finding jobs together.
