Waste wand Wastewater sector in Switzerland
I have been looking for an environmental job (mainly wastewater sector) in Switzerland for some months. I have a Bachelor in Environmental Sciences and more than 10 years of valid working experience. Native Spanish speaker and fluent (approx C1) in French and English. My current German level is A 2.2.
I have applied to several offers both in the German and the French side, always with negative feedback. I consider that both my poor German and lacking of working permit are among the major obstacles.
I am considering to take a Master course at the ETH, hoping to improve my chances to look for a job there when i finnish it.
The downside is that, for what I've seen so far, there are few compnaies in this sector working in Switzerland, and few of them work on international projects (more likely to hire foreign people). I have been reading old threads about similar topics, but I would like to get an updated feedback about it. You always tend to be optimistic and think that there has to be more and that you are not able to see the whole pic because you haven't invested enough time...but currently I see much more open positions on those fields in Spain, where the unemployment rate is a 23%, than in Switzerland.
One of the most interesting Swiss established companies for me is Pöyry, I would also appreciate some feedback about it if there is somebody working for them in this Forum.
Thanks in advance for all your feedbacks!!
