About us Working at the University of Groningen Dual-Career Support

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I guaranteed a job when I register for Dual-Career Support?

There is no guarantee of a job. We will do everything possible to assist you in your job search, but unfortunately we can neither create jobs nor intervene in an employer’s hiring process. Please be aware that you will be most successful if you make your own efforts to find a job.

Will I be given preferential treatment for UG positions?

The UG is committed to assisting Dual-Career couples. Please always state in your cover letter that you qualify as an internal candidate because of your Dual-Career status. We also advise you to mention it in your CV (in addition to your personal details). For vacancies at the UG, please consult our website. After you register as a partner, you will receive a weblink to these internal vacancies. In case you registered but you did not receive this link, please contact us at 050-3635313 or send an email to dualcareer

Can you help me find employment outside the UG?

With our network of business contacts in the community, we can put you in touch with useful contacts for exploratory meetings and job applications.

How long will you assist me in my job search?

Our services can continue for up to two years or until you secure your first regular, permanent job, whichever comes first.
