Thinking of offering Career Services

Im thinking of providing a career service for foreign candidates in Switzerland. The service would include CV content and layout consulting for Swiss market, Information on the Swiss Job market and how it works, what employers agencies etc look for in a candidate here, interview coaching sessions, mock interviews to prepare for real ones, life coaching from a qualified life coach. Myers briggs testing to determine personality traits/strengths etc. Can offer offer personal intros to main recruitment companies and also some of the bigger international companies in CH.

The service would be offered in different packages.

I have 15 years experience in recruitment, 10 of which are in Switzerland both externally and inhouse. I have seen over the years that because Switzerland is very different to most recruitment markets candidates are often confused and off the mark with their applications and interviews.

What do you think? Useful service or not? Something you would use?

Cheers :)

Well I would have thought that the majority of people in your target market, normally come here a job transfer to start with... and many of those that don't take up jobs with multinationals where the recruiting process is very similar to home!

The idea sounds nice, as many people come on EF looking for advice about CVs and interviews. There's also the potential to help trailing spouses navigate the market to get a job. It would depend on the structure as to how successful you'd be but the idea sounds okay to me. :)
