Re: looking for a job and employer in switzerland

You have very, very little chance of getting any work in Switzerland without an EU passport, and with no work experience in your academic fields. I can't see any logical reason why an employer would want to go through the hassle of fighting to get you a work permit when there are so many Europeans wanting such jobs who are much easier to hire. However, good luck...

You are likely not going to get social work unless you have something that an employer cannot get locally or from qualified Europeans. For an employer to hire a non-EU person requires a LOT more effort and paperwork than hiring a local or EU person.

Your written English also needs much improvement, and this may also limit you (on top of everything else) when applying for jobs that require it.

Re: looking for a job and employer in switzerland

You need to search job adverts for jobs that you are qualified for and apply as the advert instructs! If you can't do that, well then.........

You need to do your own research... there are plenty of resources on this forum with links to job websites and recruitment agencies. If finding a job in Switzerland was as easy as coming on to the forum and making a thread asking for people to help you out, then everyone would be doing it.

Search for Swiss job websites and recruitment agencies online, or research the companies that specialise in the fields you studied in, and then apply to them. There are no shortcuts for someone in your situation and you will need to put a lot of time and effort into it.

Re: looking for a job and employer in switzerland

Nothing you have mentioned would get you a job here apart from posssibly the sociology/psychology side. For that you would need to get your qualifications recognised by the Swiss Red Cross which takes time and money and then you would have to apply for jobs. But non-EU's are at the end of the hiring queue because it's expensive and time consuming to apply for permits for them unless absolutely necessary. The non-EU hiring process is outlined here:

https://www.bfm.admin.ch/bfm/en/home...zulassung.html

The non-EU quota limits have also been cut for next year which will make it even more imperative that you have specialised skills that are in demand. If they're not and there are plenty of EU nationals with the same skills you simply won't find a job in Switzerland. A couple of degrees without several years of experience to back them up isn't going to land a job here as the degrees alone don't make you special enough for potential employers to go through the hassle of trying to hire you.

Your English is nowhere near good enough for a job in social sciences in the UK... your only real hope would be somewhere French-speaking (provided you are fluent in speaking, reading and writing). From what I have heard France is much less strict than Switzerland with regards to immigration, and you probably have more chance of getting a job there.

Very likely, he said he speaks good French, hence why I mentioned it. However, unless you know 100% beyond any shadow of a doubt that he has native level reading and writing capability, then perhaps it's best not to automatically assume he has.

Re: looking for a job and employer in switzerland

Since you are from Morocco and really want to work in Europe, I can see only one plausible way for this to happen. You need to bring some special skills that are in demand in Europe and cannot be found easily. So, do you speak Arabic ?

You might be able to find some kind of a job related to teaching/translating/interpreting Arabic. Since you are supposed to be fluent in French and possess a reasonably good command of English, provided you speak Arabic and have knowledge in psychology, you could potentially add value to organizations (non-profits ? ) that work with refugees.

Hope that this helps and now its your turn to do your research

Google.

The Internet.

Research.

It's ok to get on a forum and ask for suggestions, but the final result will depend on YOUR willingness to put in the effort to find what you need. People here have already suggested what to look for; now you need to go and look for it. It won't be easy but then again, no one said it would be.

Good luck!
