Dual Career & Family Support Services

Dual Career programme

As a spouse or partner of one of Radboud University's international staff, you may also like some support in your search for employment and settling in the Netherlands. Radboud University’s Dual Career Program offers you this guidance so your transition to life in the Netherlands will be as comfortable as possible. The Dual Career Program assists you via support, tools and resources to improve your chances of autonomously finding employment in the Netherlands.

The Dual Career Programme includes the following services:

  • support, tools and resources in your search for employment, further study opportunities, voluntary work or internships;
  • personalised career guidance, preparation for the local labor market and job interviews;
  • personalised advice on your resume, LinkedIn profile and motivational letter;
  • advice and guidance in orientating on your professional future and help in building a network.

Please note that even though the Dual Career program offers customized support in your search for employment, regrettably we cannot guarantee results. Your chances of finding a job will depend on the local job market and how it matches your skills and experience. The responsibility for actually securing a job remains with yourself. The Dual Career Program lasts up until one year, or until you secure your first job - whichever comes first.
