Career coaches or consultants in Geneva (or in remote)

Dear all

my wife is trying to find a job here in CH after the pregnancy and the fact our boy now is 1.

We are well aware of the covid situation and the current shortage of work, but before our move she worked in a very specific field (movie industry) that is not that developed in CH.

She is willing to re-skill and she has already did some courses to enable her more career options.

However she is finding harder to navigate the Swiss "system" and would like some professional advice on what she should do to improve her CV and which areas she should focus on (e.g. she thought of going back to the Uni but the counsellor there was quite discouraging on the degree she though would have been a good fit, etc).

I was wondering if anyone has the name of a good career coach/advisor in the Geneva area, preferably English (or Italian) speaking

Many thanks

Hi there, yes, it's an enormous challenge. I had to rethink the process from scratch.

The RAV paid for me to do a course with Schmidhauser & Partner AG which helped enormously. I can see on their website that they support private clients. They do work in English, as well, although that's not obvious from the website. I know that they are currently working remotely.

I, also, used a career consultant back in the UK as some issues I was contending with don't need specialist Swiss market knowledge.

I hope that helps.
