In need for some advice

Hi,
I am flustrated with the transcontinental job search.
I have been searching for a biotech/pharma job in the EU for a while now.
I am a Polish citizen with 4 years of industry experience, PhD from an American University and MS from Polish University.
My family and I really want to get back to Europe. Switzerlad is one of the top places we would like to live in.
So far the job search have been very dissapointing. I get the impression that candidates that live in Europe get the priority.

Any tips or recomandations as to the best hunting strategy will be apreciated.
Should we just move and hope to find something once we are there?
Getting desperate...
Thanks!

You might want to try DE too ( stay around Frankfurt Oder / Słubice try the Uni for jobs perhaps ? ) - visit our sister site www.toytowngermany.com, and welcome to the forum.

yes, i would suggest you move and try to find something here provided you have enough cash to live on for quite a while. but then you need to find somewhere to live and good luck convincing somebody to rent you a place without a steady job... catch 22.
