Dual Career Services
The Gender & Diversity committee of the Austrian university conferences have initiated the "Dual Career Services" network in Vienna, Lower Austria and Upper Austria.
Dual career couples are each highly skilled and specialized and have an independent career.
For these couples, career paths are often linked to frequent changes in jobs and locations.
Universities are especially confronted with these issues as many academic couples deal with dual career concerns.
The choice regarding where to work and live plays in increasing role not only to one's own prospective professional career development, but also for his/her partner as well as the location of where to raise a family.
Our Dual Career services include the following measures:
