    Abstract

    This paper focuses on the dual-career job search with an eye toward iteratively finding the right fit as a job-seeking couple in engineering education. A review of trends for dual-career couples and dual-career hiring policies underscores the prevalence of dual-earner families. Strategies and resources are outlined for couples with one or more members in academia. The experiences of several faculty members who have succeeded at the challenge of fulfilling their commitments to their partners while realizing their aspirations of teaching engineering at the college or university level are presented. The paper elaborates strategies that dual-career couples can use in their search including: focusing the geographic search region, exploring options beyond the tenure-track, engaging university dual-career policies, being flexible, prospecting via targeted email, presenting the couple as a package deal, and balancing career with family responsibilities.
