Share your own job-search story

Hi everyone,

I have just read a Harvard Business Review blog on sharing job search stories, and find that very helpful. But I feel the experience is more relevant for the US job market.

Hence, I was thinking sharing our job search stories in the Swiss job market maybe helpful to us. I am trying to change my career from academia to the private sector in Zürich due to family reasons, and have started my job search with no success so far.

Anyone who has succeeded, especially as a non-German speaker, is willing to share his own story?

Thanks.

Re: Share your own job-search story

Hi,

Many thanks for sharing out your experience. Nevertheless, I think it would be even more helpful if you could tell in detail how you specifically got your current job, that is the single story from job application to job offer.

Take care.
