These organizations have agreed to help the accompanying
spouses/partners of new faculty/staff:
• learn more about their organizations;
• determine areas that correspond with
the spouses'/partners' skills and interests;
• identify potential internal career opportunities.
The contacts listed are for information gathering and networking
purposes and do not guarantee that you will be given an interview
for an open position. Read Informational Interviewing (pdf) for
advice on how to conduct an informational interview.
To contact an organization, complete the following steps:
Learn as much as you can about the organization by reviewing
its web site and other published materials. DO NOT contact an
organization until you are knowledgeable about its products,
purposes, etc. Determine which organizations are a good “fit” for
you. Read the Workplace Values Assessment for guidance. Call
or e-mail the organization's designated University liaison. Inform
the liaison of your affiliation with the appropriate University
and that you received her/his contact information through the
Partner Opportunities Program.
The liaison will then work directly with you. You will be responsible
for future correspondence with the organization. Provide POP
with a very brief summary of your contacts.
