RAV -will this get me a job?

Hello .

I have finally gone to RAV with the encourgement of the divorce court judge, at first i felt out of place as i had never had trouble finding work before but then i had never really had to find work in switzerland other than raise the family which was good training in many ways too.
i soon realized that a clever system has appointed a personal counselor to the people there and i had gotten a long shopping list of "what to do" and told to leave the dog at home next time.
Tomorrow i have my first interview with my advisor whom i was told will not speak English but only German, the official office language for fair opportunity reasons..
i cant sleep thinking of how this will turn out
Does anyone have experience with this , will this get me a job?
could be i am not taking this seriously enough but will this get me a job ?
I am also starting a CELTA training once a week starting January
will this get me a job?

I appreciate very much your input and jokes are welcome but only encouraging ones please...

Re: RAV -will this get me a job?

I would say: don't worry, I have found the RAV very professional and accommodating.
Do you have enough German to at least give a show, they will "unofficially" speak English of course.
The computers where you can see job offers have (at least here) the option for English language.

Can they find you a job?
If you have some marketable skills, why not! However I found that the RAV caters more for the generic Jobmarket, highly specialized jobseekers would need their own networks.

Go for it.
