looking for any advice help to start looking for employment as a web designer or crea

Hi

My fiancee has just moved over to switzerland and is working in fribourg. I have visited the country and am now looking to move over, however i would like any tips on finding a job based in the ecommerce market as a web designer, or anything graphic design based. I have been employed in the fashion ecommence market with nearly 4yrs experience in this field. I am willing to look at taking any freelance work on or anything creative based, any suggestions on where to start looking? before i decide to move over?

thanks

It looks like most of the jobs will be east of Berne,

I don't think there is a fashion design industry here, and I think the nearest places would be Paris, Milan, Düsseldorf, or maybe Munich.

Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but it's obviously important to have a good up-to-date website with references and a portfolio. As well as looking for jobs, keep looking for freelance as well to increase your portfolio, add contacts, expand your network.

I'd apply not only to vacancies but even any companies that might hire people with your profile, just to let them know that you're out there and to show them what you've already done.

You've probably got links for the job-searching websites, but I'd also look for freelance projects on classifieds websites like anibis.ch for the French speaking region (not sure what the German equivalent is, someone will surely post it).

Good luck.
