I am an ecologist (BSc. Ecology, Master of Forest Conservation), writer and geographic information systems technician. I currently live in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada and work for the Ontario Natural Heritage Information Centre, part of the NatureServe Network. I have six years of work experience in my field. I am also a proud citizen of both Canada and Switzerland. English is my mother tongue and I am fluent in high German (C2) and Swiss German (thanks to many summer jobs and volunteer positions in Switzerland during my university years), and have an intermediate command of French. Personally I am ready for a new adventure and professionally I am looking for a new challenge. The Alps are calling me back. So I am searching for a job in Switzerland. Some parts of Austria, Germany or France would suit me too. My greatest passion and talent is in science communication. I have been applying for jobs posted on sites like www.naturschutz.ch
. I have also started "cold calling" non-governmental organizations and ecological research institutions. Does anyone have any suggestions about how else I might find a job in Switzerland?
Thanks so much for your help.
