Helping my Swiss husband find a job in the Biochemistry field

Hi there,


My Swiss husband and I are looking to move to Switzerland with our 5 month old son.

His native tongue is Swiss German and high-German. His English spoken and written is excellent.

To assist my husband in the job search process is it possible / practical to find a job in the science field with only having a BS degree in Biochemistry from the USA?

Also, do you know of any good recruitment consultant who would be able to help my husband find a job in the biochemistry field?

If there is a similar post, please due direct me to it.

I thank you in advance for your help

-Roberta

Roberta, unfortunately the competition here in Switzerland is tough, most jobs are for PhDs or MD PhDs, at least in the Pharma industry. Jobs for Bachelor's degrees are scarce but I guess you can always try. It might be very difficult though, why not contact headhunters?
Best wishes!

If he is on LinkedIn PM me with his info and I can point him in the direction of the Swiss recruiters I know who seemed genuine and honest when I've dealt with them in the past. If he is looking for a bench job then it should be possible. However, the Swiss biotech industry is starting to feel the pinch and a company in the neighbourhood of where I work just reduced head count from 82 to 10.
