HERC’s Impact

HERC does more than any other organization to provide highly educated and diverse jobseekers with access to job opportunities at colleges, universities, hospitals, research labs, government agencies, and related non- and for-profit organizations. HERC was also the first organization to provide resources to help dual-career couples find jobs within a commutable distance.

These are just a few of the ways HERC has succeeded in addressing critical higher education recruitment and retention matters:

  • HERC member institutions collaborate, innovate, and learn from one another.
  • HERC member institutions receive more faculty candidates from HERC than other sources.
  • HERC member institutions have a powerful tool in their dual-career toolkit.
  • HERC member institutions utilize HERC to comply with EEOC requirements by reaching highly diverse jobseekers.
  • HERC member institutions save considerably on products and services with HERC member discounts.
  • HERC jobseekers get interviews and find great jobs.
  • HERC jobseekers find jobs that enable them to maintain a healthy work/family balance.
  • HERC dual-career jobseekers find jobs within a commutable distance of their partners.
  • HERC partners receive visibility and build relationships with higher education decision makers.

Jean Soderlund
"We have gained tremendous value from participating in HERC. The HERC website is a key facet of our dual-career program and has greatly simplified posting open faculty and staff positions. Equally valuable has been the opportunity to network with colleagues in Provost's Offices and Human Relations across the region to share insights on innovation and success in recruiting and diversity initiatives."

- Jean R. Soderlund, Professor of History and Deputy Provost for Faculty Affairs, Lehigh University
