Cold Email / Spontan Bewerbung

Hi all,

I would like to find out about the art of sending a spontaneous application in CH. Sending a CV directly to the head of a team one wants to work in seems okay to me but how do bosses view such applications here in CH?

In my case would be to law firms. Quite recently I have been sending spontan Bewerbung to the HR. But I wondered if I should have cc-ed the cover letter to the head. In all these applications, I have addressed the partner involved directly but sent the application via their online portal.

If I have the partner's email, why not send it directly to him or her and cc it to recruiting? Right?

Could anyone share some tips? Thanks.

Hi there,

I tried this for one company and they immediately referred me back to the online portal / website for application.

It seems that the Swiss like things in specific order and done a specific way.

I am actively looking for a job in the internal investigations or criminal investigations field. I have completed a CAS in Compliance Investigator course at ZHAW. I have applied at law firms and banks.

Anyone with experience in compliance investigations that could offer some advice or tips.
