The Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley and Personé Staffing are here to help you find your life in the North Country.

The St. Lawrence Valley abounds with opportunities for professional couples--it is a great place to work, learn, play, and live! And we are excited to help you seize those opportunities, as we know that dual career couples are essential to the vibrancy of our local communities. The hundreds of spouses and partners of our faculty and administrators contribute to our communities as business owners, entrepreneurs, local officials, employees of a diversity of excellent businesses, volunteers, scholars, and community leaders.

The Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley and Personé Staffing are therefore pleased and excited to help make your relocation successful. From finding a realtor to knowing where to recreate, we can help.

In particular, we are here to help you find meaningful employment in a region that is new to you. Through an arrangement between the Associated Colleges and Personé staffing, we are able to provide spouses and partners of new permanent faculty and full-time administrative staff of the colleges with up to four free hours of one-on-one career counseling that best fit their needs.

We start by developing an understanding of your career goals. We then work with you to explore employment opportunities in the area, review major employers, tailor your resume, market you to local firms, or take whatever other steps are needed to help you find that ideal work situation.

If your ideal situation is starting your own business, we can help with that, too. Our region leads New York State in the number of small businesses per capita. We can point you to resources to help make your business ideas come to life!
