Help, advice, support all welcome, in exchange for my life story........
Having lived in Baden for 3 months studying German 4 hours per day, I am now seriously looking for work. I learnt fast, but no doubt my german is not yet good enough for the level of interaction required by many organisations, but I need to find a position nevertheless, and can build my German from there.
I am really open as to the work I now take on- (I spent last 3 yrs setting up and running a wide range of events in the motor industry, and have previously worked as a recruiter for 4 years - sales/marketing/technical professionals in the software/services industry)
I have uploaded my CV to various company websites and a recruiter or 2 but not much joy so far. It seems to me that everyone needs to put skills in a box and a piece of paper to say i am qualified to do something I would be capable of doing with my eyes shut normaly.
Having had an interview with Google as head technical recruiter for Zurich I am bouyed a little, (unfortunatly having been out of recruitment for 4 years was too much for them to ignore).
I certainly respect the chap who said he has worked as dishwasher for a year but i just couldn`t do this myself (partly the need to earn more and the thought of `dishwasher hands`) , but I would be more than willing to consider the following (where i have experience) if anyone has a lead or a need!
Events/expo`s - anything considered to get me `in`
Marketing/PR support services (I used to run all the crazy PR stunts)
Recruiter or resourcer (in-house or agency)
Professional driver of anything (i was lucky enough to drive a hugh range of lovely cars, HGV, 4x4 etc)
Merchandiser-in store promotions
customer support positions
or anything else-?
And if that wasn`t enough, I am soon to be a dad for the first time and feel that this may not be the cheapest experience of my life
Without lots of certificates to prove it, i am hard working, practically intelligent, and get on well with all.
Best regards & thanks for reading!
