Re: Taking a job for the sake of it...

I think if I were in your shoes I would take it. I think as an expat it is always harder to find work, and many professions/educations do not translate directly into the swiss market, and to be employed in this economy is a blessing. It is painful to have a masters degree and work two hours a week teaching english...but now I am projecting.

That said, in my job hunt I have come across a lot of HR postings.

Re: Taking a job for the sake of it...

You'd also benefit from the role in improving your German. You can also sell it as such for future interviews: took a lower end job to work on my German because I know that's important for an HR role, etc.

I suspect people would consider that a very practical and commendable thing to do, rather than them focussing on "aha, you took a job and are switching again after one year!".

Thank you for your comments. I haven't accepted the job.....probably crazy I know. The Company were very much in the mind set that they did not want to lose me after 1 year, as per the previous person. I could not take a role knowing that I'd leave after a year.

The commute was long which meant the hours long too. Just didn't fit for me. I'd much rather spend time focusing purely on German for the next 6 months then apply for a HR role. And there are lots of HR roles advertised, even lower admin ones which I'd consider when I'm ready.
