Finding Work as Female Executive in CH


For the executive women seeking a job in the CH market, you might be surprised to find out that only 2% of executives are female. That fact aside, a newly transplanted executive must really leverage their female and male networks from their previous place of residence.

Here is how I landed an executive job at a large company - I used my networks from the US via LinkedIn and Xing to set up many informational meetings. Many executive jobs are not listed, so this is a great way to get to know of the unlisted ones. Second, I told several of my friends back in the US that I was moving to CH, and they reached out to their professional networks. Professional networks the world over are quite small, so chances are that someone within your contacts back home, is connected to your new home in CH.

Also, I joined the Professional Women´s Group of Zurich. It is great!

Ladies, please share your tips!
