Sorry, but for crying out loud - only the best computer science engineers get accepted for Google e.g. those coming from the ETH, and most likely not those who've worked in furniture design since obtaining their degree .
Sorry porsch1909. Just noticed your red-blobs to my reputation on this post.
Would be very interested in knowing why you believe this comment is judgemental!

My daughter is just completing her her studies to qualify working in this area, although she's not interested in this career-path (and has visited the relevant on-site information days, slid down the google slide etc).

One of our best friends from ETH does work at Google since quite a bit, following his studies at the ETH.

What's your problem with my comment?

@ porsch1909

Your response of "Go Away" per PM didn't exactly help?

I saw that, so was irritated that you were given advice not relevant to your situation. Nothing against you - you follow your goals, and I find that great .

But there are so many issues from the situation you've described, which can't be enhanced with rose coloured glasses in real-life, even when you've met your soul-mate.

For example: why would you sacrifice your computer science degree, plus the established career in-between, to work serving at a Hamburger joint etc .

There are many immigration issues - well linked in previous posts as reference points within this thread. But you need to ensure that you get good information pre-EF info. etc. Then, getting information over EF can really help fill the gaps.

So, if you've met your soul-mate and want to relocate in Switzerland, then there might be quite a lot of research and work ahead! Wish you all the best.
Thank you for your reply, really!

I don't really see it as sacrificing my degree, I have found next to nothing here that I have been able to use it with anyway, so I wouldn't actually be losing out. As for my career with my current employer, if any textile company wants someone with experience with the Lectra suite then I am all ears!

Thanks again!

Problem is you're sort of creating problems for yourself. You don't seem to want to use the skills/experience you have so far (computer science/furniture design/CAD), but will find problems with things like shop work, post office, Starbuck's, McD's, etc, because you don't speak German well enough yet.

There's a sticky in this section of the forum which deals specifically with companies who want English speakers so check that out and then check their websites to see if there's anything you could apply for.

Work hard at getting your German up to speed - apps, online, CDs, foreign language films, get your girlfriend to talk to you only in German.

More job websites to check out:

www.jobs.ch
www.jobup.ch
www.monster.ch
It's not that I am unwilling to use them, I'm just realistic in that I might not be able to find work in those areas, no matter how experienced I may be.

I know I would find it hard, regarding my skill with German, but I am not moving there tomorrow, so I have time to improve and practice


Thank you for those links.
