With this in mind, we offer individual support, career advice for both the academic and the non-academic sectors in Switzerland, the arrangement of contacts with selected recruitment agencies, and coaching. In addition, the (internal) jobs market of the University of St.Gallen (HSG) is open to the partners of professors.
We support the mediation of advertised positions, although the position targeted in each case may not stand in any direct relation of dependency, whether subordinate or superior, to the position of the person who first received an offer from the University (the “first hire”). If your partner is following an academic career path, he or she can use our services, for example taking part in the Young Investigator Programme (YIP) or being advised at the Grants Office.
Furthermore, we are a member of various dual-career networks, whereby the partners of professors can, amongst other things, attend events organised by the International Dual Career Network (IDCN) at no cost. The Faculty Affairs team will also be glad to support you with regard to these issues.
