Re: Young trailing spouse- career options?

imho I currently see the following careers "booming":
-nurse in institutions for elderly people
-nurse in hospitals
-IT (requires school+experience)

as the other forum colleague pointed out, this is a rewarding career if it also suits your personal goals. 3 years or how long the nurse school takes is nothing in comparison with 3 years wasted in applying for other jobs and receiving the standard rejection lines.

employers are literally fighting over nurses and the shortage does not appear to alleviate anytime soon.

The problem is that it would take a long time to start the program, complete it and then qualify as a UN interpreter. I do want to start working ASAP so a career change is my best option at the moment.

Thanks for your reply.
I have also seen that in Switzerland, local universities are better seen/appreciated that universities overseas- regardless of their world ranking.

I am not expecting to enter a new career in a mid-level position but I am willing to start with internships/ entry level jobs, of course.

I honestly don't want to go through all the hassle of applying to a master's degree in interpreting, spending 2 years studying and then having to qualify for the job when the economic return doesn't make sense; the reason why my first choice is a career change.

I guess my best bet is to target international companies and perhaps British or American ones which are very open when it comes to non-common backgrounds.

Oh, I had no idea there was such a service available in Switzerland. I will look into it. Thank you!

Ugh.... those are not good news regarding digital marketing.
In your experience, what would be a career with good prospects in CH?
