French jobs!!!

DEAR ALL
thanks a lot for the efforts exerted in the forums . it has a lot of practical info and the members are very nice.

my native language is arabic , i had BA in English and post graduate study in tourism in french (did not speak it for the last 3 years yet still understand ) . of course i had to learn polish to get the nationality . so now iam EU-8 multilingual . i had 15 years of experience in administration and hotel and tourism.

i am broke ( almost no money )
PREFER TEMPORARY WORK (MAX 6 MONTH)

i am looking for any job (administration , hotel, even cleaning, HANDING FLYERS ... ) except loading and carrying heavy things

my questions :
which french speaking city is suitable ?? (inexpensive rent , possibility to find a job )
what is the fastest way to get any job ??
what is the lowest NET salary for living ??
do i have to have a residence permit for 3 months to 6 months ??

thanks

Re: French jobs!!!

Polish citizens currently have restricted access to Swiss job market. Hotels recruit temporary workers but don't know how the work permit situation works.

Re: French jobs!!!

Maybe live in France near the border, then you don't need a permit until you get a job in Swiss and will be cheaper while you are looking.

If with a Polish passport, this year, after B permit quota is exceeded, you would be eligible for a one year L permit.
You may look for construction, factory floor, retail, cleaning or agriculture jobs as well. Not sure if it is worth leaving Poland for such a job though, unless you have nothing there.

Re: French jobs!!!

If it's hotels you're looking for, Geneva is worth a try. However, it is also an expensive place to live so you might want to consider travelling from somewhere in Vaud (Nyon, Coppet etc..) or even neighbouring France.

It's also worth applying in Lausanne. I don't know if the other cities are big in the tourism industry. Valais is very busy in the winter, but not so much during the rest of the year.

The agriculture pays sh!te money - ca 18,- per hour, and when they deduce bed and boarding one gets around 1-1.5k nett for a back-breaking, umpteen hours per day job.
Factory and retail - around 3.5-4k and more gross per month.
The unemployment around blue collars here is low, but this is true for skilled jobs nonetheless, i.e. with formal training and experience. You better try applying from Poland, as here you'd need 1k+ per month to barely survive for a shared apt and food, not including health insurance (for a short stay).
