Services of the Partner Opportunities Program

The University of California, San Diego, recognizes that decisions about seeking, accepting, and maintaining employment often involve considerations concerning two careers.  The Partner Opportunities Program (POP) provides assistance and support in the employment search for spouses or partners of General Campus ladder-rank faculty candidates and appointees, and of those in senior management positions who hold academic appointments.

The Partner Opportunities Program offers assistance and guidance to those conducting their own job searches by assessing their needs, arranging job contacts and informational interviews, and serving as a central resource for information regarding employment opportunities.

In order to participate, clients must be referred to the Partner Opportunities Program by the department in which their spouse or partner is a candidate or appointee.  The Partner Opportunities Program is available to General Campus Ladder rank candidates and appointees.
