I found a job! ;-)

Yes it's true! After living here for three years - albeit the first one with an L Permit so I couldn't work - although I looked for a job in the hopes that an employer would hire me and apply for a B permit on my behalf ... I finally landed a job. Not just any job but actually my dream job!

So it CAN happen! I can't tell you how much time I spent looking and how many jobs I applied for and never even heard back from ... I guess the moral of the story is don't give up ...

Just wanted to share the good news and try to inspire all those who are searching b/c I know how demoralizing the job search lifestyle is ...

Cheers,
Sue ... who is starting work Mon commuting to Basel

Re: I found a job! ;-)

That is just super! What do you think finally did it in the end? Did you hear about the position from someone you knew or was it just one of the many you applied for that fit your qualifications?

I didn't even know that FCB had cheerleaders - yet alone, recruiting.
