Re: RAV benefits

You should contact the RAV Obwalden/ Nidwalden at this link:

https://www.rav-ownw.ch/home/kontakt/

For RAV registration the following documents should documents be available. RAV will advise more precisely what they need and may want you to post or email scanned copies to them:
1. Foreigner's identification card (B, L or C permit)
2. Passport
3. Work contract
4. Termination letter
5. AHV grey card or medical insurance card with AHV number
6. Complete application dossier, i.e., CV, reference letters and diplomas
7. List of applications made to-date
8. Registration of your current address

To gain an overview of the RAV processes, consider taking a RAV Zurich eLearning course (various languages):

https://awa.zh.ch/internet/volkswirt...formation.html

- At the course end, email the certificate to your own email for possible later use.

This EnglishForum link has numerous translated RAV documents, which are mostly available in D, F, and I at arbeit.swiss:

blackbird has given good input about possibly looking for a job in a logistics center. Indeed.ch is job search spider that you could use, e.g., search on logistik, english, etc.


Added:
1. Be sure to start sending applications immediately. Today is a fine day to start. Apply for more suitable jobs tomorrow and everyday thereafter.
2. Do not quit your job. Wait to see what your employer does. It is possible that your employer will put you on short-time-work (Kurzarbeit) and you will still be employed but not working.
3. If you are short of 12 months of working in Switzerland, you will need to obtain a PD U1 form from the employment office in the last EU country you worked in. This will support your claim for unemployment compensation in Switzerland, if needed.
4. Use RAV's job-room.ch to help locate a new position:
