hello everyone, and thanks for hearing my plea.
first of all, out of solidarity, i would be happy if anyone in my situation could make use of this thread. so, feel free.
i am a student in the field of arts, i just completed the artistic highscool in ticino, the italian speaking region of switzerland. next stop, the zhdk. but here comes the first obstacle: the language. with my family, we figured out the best way to learn the language, save some money and accumulate experience + having a calm environment for working on my portfolio was to go live there alone for about six months. i set that up with a mate, but we both are having a big problem: the employment.
we are sending thousands of well-written emails along with our curriculums (and i assure, since i studied arts, my curriculum is a beauty, along with being complete with a decent work experience. guess i am not that good at my job as i think
) but it seems like there is literally no place free.
employment sites aren't of help, since the only places listed there ask for pluriannual experience or a specific professional formation. i don't even know what an "expert of risk strategies" is!
we don't have a qualification, since the artistic maturity by herself is worth as much as those horrible plastic garden gnomes you see around the city.
i have a bit of experience as waiter, factory worker and such. i speak italian, english on a decent level and my german is a solid A2.
does anyone was in the same situation? how did you got out of that? i would literally do anything in order to not rely on my family, that sadly isn't swimming in gold. names of industries or such who employ also non german-speaking folks would be of great use. really, i would even spend 8 hours a day cleaning toilets.
thank you very much! probably this isn't the right place, or the right way, but i am really desperate. i have big plans for my future and this situation is slowly compromising everything, so sorry if i sound arrogant or unpolite, i am just nervous.
thank you sooo much again folks, have a nice day. you are beautiful.
