I am happy to be a member of this forum.
I am a first year 21 year old student and I live in Toronto, Canada. I am studying business managment but will major in either Accounting or Finance. I have visited Switzerland a few times and I am in love with the country.
I just wanted to know if someone here can help me answer a few questions. First of all I know no FRENCH. In the future I would love to live in Switzerland but first of all I need to learn French. I wanted to know if its possible to find a student job in Switzerland that requires English only. Perhaps in my 4 months of summer I could come over there and learn French at a school but also have an English speaking job so I can make some money on the side. What do you guys suggest I do?? I have relatives in Lausanne, so I would preferably like to work in lausanne or maybe Geneva. I know I am just a student so I would work any job and take French classes at some school.
I also wanted to know how the career market for Accounting is in Switzerland. Are there more jobs in Finance or ACC?? And how are the wages?? This is 3 years from now when I finish my degree. Maybe by then I will learn French and I will be able to do a masters in Geneva.
Anyways right now my goal is to be able to find some job in Switzerland and start learning some french. I have worked many jobs in Canada from waiter, bartender, to data entry, bookkeeping and even as a bank teller. I have also worked with telephone banking.
Any other suggestions are welcome. Maybe I am on the wrong path?? I just really like the European life and especially Switz. I am really confused about where I want to spend the rest of my life but I think I have found the answer. Lausanne looks like a fresh painting every day.
