Project Management Roles in Construction Industry

Hi Everyone,

My wife recently shifted with me to Basel. I currently have a job in Consulting (Basel), but she had to leave her job in India to join me. Both of us currently have L residency permit. We are now starting to actively look for job opportunities for her. We are completely aware of the tough challenges that lie ahead given we are non-EU and have L permit. Having said that, we would like to give our best shot and not give in just because it is very difficult. She has started to learn German and aims to continue improving her German skills. She has a Masters degree in civil engineering and has completed her post graduation in construction management (focus on project management). Post her MBA, she has ~1.5 years of industrial experience. She aims to continue improving her skill set to fit the requirements of the current market.

Inputs Required from the Group:

Help in creating the right network: Since we are new to Switzerland, we do not know the right channels to create a professional network for her. We would like to get some advice on how to build one that focusses on construction management or project management

Suggestion of right recruiting agency: I have gone through some of the threads in this section around recruiting agency. But would love to get some opinion on a good agency based on some of the group members' personal experience

Suggestions around internships/NGOs: Since getting a fulltime job is very difficult at this early stage, she is open to getting internship roles (with/without payment). The aim is to continue gaining expeirence that can help in the long run

Looking forward to all your suggestions!
