Dual Career

Two Careers – One Partnership

 
Dual careers play a crucial role in the recruitment of excellent researchers. Dual Career Couples is a term coined for couples where both partners have enjoyed a very good education, share the same career-focused mindset, and pursue individual careers. Consequently, if one partner changes their workplace and place or residence, the question of the other partner’s career outlook, as well as of the reconciliation of work and family life, must be addressed.
