While the Dual Career and Community Resource Program provides invaluable support in job search efforts, the university cannot guarantee job placement for family members at JMU or in the local community. The success and length of a job search will depend upon several factors including: economic conditions, candidate's background, the time and methods dedicated to the search, and the type of position sought.
