Question from an architect

I am a US licensed architect who will be relocating to Lausanne in January 2008 while my girlfriend attends IMD. I want to spend a significant amount of time there with her, but I meed to find at least a little something to pay the bills. I have some tough circumstances (English only speaker, no work permit, short term stay), but I am open to almost anything. I have experience in engineering and construction as well. I have sent out a lot of feelers, but I am open to ideas that could help. I am guessing that I will have more luck with larger firms who have more resources and I am also willing to commute to Geneva.

Anyone have any advice on firms that are looking for a fella like me?

Thanks so much.

Sorry to say that it is unlikely that you will be successful in finding a job in your field without speaking French. While there are jobs where language is not so important they tend to be in the IT world.

You would also need to check that your license is valid in Switzerland - they tend to have their own versions of most professional qualifications and conversion is not always easy.

You might want to send your cv to the ecole hoteliere de lausanne (lausanne hotel school) if you could teach as I think they might need some part-time, short duration professors for the next year or so. try www.ehl.ch
