Spouse Career Counseling

In a world, where the globalization of companies requires a higher mobility, the spouses’ career can become the challenge for an assignment. Holding professional, managerial and executive positions, spouses are increasingly reluctant to accept international assignments. They face losing a job twice – on expatriation and repatriation. IRC provides experience and competency, supporting the trailing spouses in their career development.

  • Get to know the most relevant personality tests and models and figure out what your result means for you.
  • Based on that, start building your future. Where could your strengths, your profile or your individual preferences point you?
  • What are your blind spots and your sweet spots? What do others know about yourself which you don’t?
  • Start delving into beliefs about your personality and challenge them. Which ones are helpful, which ones are not?
