Help

I am currently looking for a job unemployed since 2.5 months, 12 years in switzerland, 33 years old, excellent education and work experience...no problem getting interviews.
However, i have 17 000 CHF debt with Betreibungsamt as my close relative died 1.5 year ago and I needed to pay her medical bills and I could not make my payments, I am just managing to come clean now.

I am afraid not getting a job because of this, although some HR people told me this should not be a problem as it was not my fault,and they dont check this info however I doubt this..

I am getting very depressed about it as I already had 12 interviews and all negative except one where I turned down....
- I am even so far know to get on disability benefits and give up with the job search, I would get around 8 to 9000CHF a month from my pension company until I reach 65, or
- use my other family name

I hate asking people for money and to relocate to other EU country well is not an option as I would get less than social support here or a little more...

What to do?

Dear Jack

This is almost your first post.

Where are you receiving the unemployment payments?

Where is the money that you are living on coming from?

Why did you turn the last job offer down?

How are you going to get the disability payments?

How are you going to get Fr 8'000 to Fr 9'000 from your pension fund, when you are only 33 years old?

How can you cheat the system with another family name?

Why do you put "Nerter" as your location, are you living there, in which Canton is this Commune?

The HR is correct, the debt registers are not checked when you apply for a job.

Looking at your first attempt here Jack, you MUST try harder when you plan to cheat and steal from people.

Hi Jack!

Come on, only 12 interviews and you're already tired?

Keep it up man!

You're lucky you have good experience and education and even in these very hard times you somehow manage to get interviews!

Keep trying, please focus on the feedback you get from your interviews; be optimistic, happy and positive as it's common sense.

You might also broaden a little your work search area or try some other domain you could be good at.

Good luck!!

Jaime

Hi,
persevere in finding a job on the one hand and on the other hand be sure you have understood fully your legal situation, so that you exactly know

-the delays that must be kept filing in your applications/candidature copies to the regional (un)employment office
-how long you can be kept on unemployment benefit
-what the eligible duration of sick leave is while on unemployment benefit

Best of luck with your continuing job search. Sounds really good for you that in 2.5 months alone you've obtained 12 interviews.

Thanks, getting an interview is no problem, I was just scared that they like a do credit check with the Betreibunsamt and then my chances would be zero. But i think i now can get around this. My benefits are like 6200 CHF a month i still have around 15 months to go. But sometimes I get depressed cos of this debt failure in 2009 but my close relative was in hospital and I had to take care of her...
From my previous employer I transferred all the insurance policies on my name and in case of long term sickness I can get paid my insured income for the next 2 years and if it continues over the period then the pension fund kicks in....same thing in case of accident.....
But this is not an option as I still have a long time to go...

Calling in sick for the next 32 years will not suffice.
Unless you already qualify for these long-term benefits (which I somehow doubt): You do understand that you are trying to rip off an insurance system ? Which means that the other members of that system have to pay for it.
