SoCal HERC Dual Career Program

The SoCal HERC Directory feature and SoCal Dual Career Toolkit are the tools you need for a complete Dual Career Program for your campus.

The SoCal Dual Career Toolkit provides general information for assisting dual career couples. The information includes job searching resources, relocation and community information, eldercare and childcare resources, recreation opportunities and much more. You can use this information to find resources you need, or you can download these resources and provide them directly to the dual career partner/spouse.
