Welcome back to the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) cool tool test. Last week I talked about what HERC is and introduced its Dual-Career Search tool that permits job seekers to enter in search job search criteria for themselves and for their partner/friend.
Today, I will highlight HERC’s webinars. Job search tools predominately offer either mainstream webinars targeted towards job seekers or member institutions. HERC’s focus is to provide customized job resources to help both achieve their respective goals. Now, that is value!
The HERC Jobseeker Webinars series are developed by regional HERCs and emphasize aspects of the job search process tailored specifically for the academic job seeker. Topics range from Expanding Your Career Networks to The Campus Visit: Interviewing for Faculty Positions. The upcoming webinar is “What Works for Women at Work: How to navigate subtle gender bias successfully” on Thursday, June 4th, at 10:00 am. What a great professional development opportunity!

HERC institutional members also benefit from professional development opportunities through webinars that feature specific best practices in faculty and staff recruitment and retention presented by higher education practitioners. The upcoming webinars cover an array of subjects like The Diversity Advantage: Incorporating Diversity Principles into the Search Committee Process, Courageous Leadership: Recruiting and Retaining Latino(a) Faculty and Higher Education Professionals, and Gender Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct on Campus: Understand Your Climate & Protect Faculty, Staff & Students. Please note that many of the webinars are offered for HRCI continuing education credits. Now that is super cool!
