Navigating the Dual Job Search

Friday, October 4, 2019
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Planning for one person's career is tough; planning for two people's careers simultaneously is even harder! In this workshop, we will discuss how to establish professional priorities and how to have productive conversations with your partner. You will also hear from a couple who have successfully navigated a dual job search. 

Sara Stevens-Spradley is the Program Coordinator for Campus Engagement at the Duke Alumni Association. She graduated from Duke's Graduate Liberal Studies program in 2019. Jackson Spradley is a Lecturer at North Carolina State University's School of Veterinary Medicine. He received his PhD in Evolutionary Anthropology from Duke in 2017.
