The Dual Career Service offers:
advisory services regarding career options in the region,
individual support in the search for a suitable job,
advice on the job application process,
bringing job seekers in contact with suitable persons.
The Dual Career Service follows the criteria for good dual career work as formulated by the Dual Career Network Germany.
It is in the interest of its clients that all internal and external positions should be filled in with the best candidate available.
The Dual Career Service requires an active cooperation of its clients. It is them who need to convince potential employers of their qualities and competencies.

Not later than in 18 months after the first contact, the Service and its client need to meet to review their strategy and objectives. The Dual Career Service, however, cannot guarantee a successful job placement.
If the partner is about to work for the University, too, the position should not be a superior or a subordinated to the partner’s one to avoid conflicts of interest.
