Employment Agencies in Zurich

Hi all!

I arrived to Zurich in September 2010 with my wife (she was moved here be her company) and as many of you, I arrived without work, so I am looking for one since then.

I had my own company in Spain for almost 6 years but in January and due to the financial crisis, I had to closed it

In my resume I show my background with over 10 years of experience (specialist in SEO, SEM, SMO, SCRUM, worked and managed major projects in national and international scale, done all sorts of functions, from a web graphic designer to web project manager, etc.) so I beleve that my resume is not "so bad", but the problem is, as always, the language... I speak Spanish and English but my German is still very basic.

At this point I am feeling demoralized and many other things that I will not write down because many of you has felt them before.

The only thing I did not try is to find a good employment agency to hire, so I would appreciate if you could recommend one to me, tell me about prices, how it work and specially if it is worthy.

Obviously if you need a specialist in web world, here I am.

Thank you very much everyone for your help and answers.

How it works is simple: You don't hire them at all. And really really do not pay anyone - no trustworthy agency would ask money from a candidate here. All agencies get paid by the employers in one way or another. They either have a fixed mandate and are asked to search for candidates, or they look at your CV and try to sell you to companies they know well. Either way, they receive their money from the employer not you. They will never start to be super-active for your job search, they will only sell you if they have a matching customer.

Simply apply to any job you find and maybe drop your CV from time to time to some of the agencies that publish job ads as well. My personal experience is that I always got interviews with agencies very quickly, but they hardly ever got concrete. The only job offers I received so far were the ones I work for myself or a head-hunter called me - not the other way around.

P.S: If you look at the bottom of this page, similar discussions are linked. You will find a lot of information in there...
