Southern California HERC

Southern California HERC supports the efforts of each of its member institutions to recruit and retain outstanding faculty, administrators, and staff through the sharing of information and resources.

Our institutions are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the recruitment process and providing a work environment sensitive to work/life balance.   We also understand that employment decisions often involve two careers and offer state of the art dual career search technology.

  • New HERC Member
    We would like to welcome the newest SoCal HERC member: Whittier College. We are so excited to collaborate with this great institution and continue growing SoCal HERC to be the best one-stop resource for higher education careers!

  • Did you know?

    In September, 2015 HERC conducted its first jobseeker survey to learn more about our registered jobseekers, how to improve their website experience, and their most requested tools and resources for career success. Data collected showed that HERC is well-regarded among its registered jobseekers with 87% of the survey respondents answering that they would recommend HERC to colleagues and friends. Furthermore, 80% of the surveyed jobseekers think HERC is as good or better than other higher education job boards (45% think HERC is better). Overall, the data was overwhelmingly positive and we hope to continue being a great resource for both jobseekers and employers alike!
