New to Switzerland and looking for work
I'm Craig, 29 years old and originally from Norwich in the UK. Since moving to Neuchatel in November (2009) I have been searching for work but, as yet, I have had no luck what so ever.
With over five year experience in GIS (Geographical Information Systems), I am very keen to move my career in a different direction. While the sales field, particularly international sales interests me, I am completely aware that with the current economic crisis as well as my lack of experience, my chances of moving directly into that field are extremely slim.
Therefore, I was wondering if anybody works for a company (preferably commutable from Neuchatel) that may require an English speaker in the near future? I am available immediately and am willing to listen to any opportunities that may arise. My main aim at present is to become fluent in French (which I am constantly working hard to improve) and to find a fresh challenge.
I can already communicate reasonably well in French having taken a number of lessons in the UK over the past 12 months and although my written French isn't up to the same standard, it is improving.
Please feel free to contact me directly or reply to this thread.
