Jobs for the boys!

My son is likely to return to Switzerland in 6 months time after studying in the US and as Im sure many parents discover, its either find him a job, or expect a permanent resident on the sofa, all the TV channels changed and of course no room on my laptop for me. I need help on websites or companies that advertise jobs on sites that he can visit himself (yes i need to send him the links because he wont do it himself) and yes, I agree he should be doing it himself, but the alternative isnt too hot. I have threatened him with manual work around the house and garden as forced employment, but helping him to find a job is preferable. Any ideas please? Thanks

Re: Jobs for the boys!

Good Morning,

Try the university websites of Bern and Fribourg (www.agef.ch for Fribourg, but they also have jobs for Bern).

Also www.students.ch, www.studisurf.ch have summer jobs and the like. If he is looking for an internship, those sights may also help.

If he would like to do an internship for the government, www.publicjobs.ch sometimes has internships, however he should be able to speak German, French or Italian for that.

Good luck!

You should sit down with him and talk about your expectations. What you expect him to do and for how long. Maybe give him a time limit of how long he can crash on your couch until he has to find his own place to live? That may boost him to look for a job as fast as possible?

Its good advice and I have done so. I worry that this generation will go through severe problems of unemployment, which brings apathy and depression .I don`t want to have to say I told you so, I would rather confront it now.
